Third base

Toronto Blue Jays OF Jose Bautista
No more hot corner

Preseason Top Ten

Jose Bautista
Evan Longoria
Adrian Beltre
Ryan Zimmerman
Aramis Ramirez
Pablo Sandoval
Brett Lawrie
David Wright
Kevin Youkilis
Alex Rodriguez

Projected Final Top Ten

Edwin Encarnacion - losing hot corner eligibility next season
Adrian Beltre - solid as always
Chase Headley - could hit the quietest 30 homers ever
Aramis Ramirez - solid when healthy
David Wright - no longer a stud but not bad
Ryan Zimmerman - power appears to be back after shoulder finally got better
David Freese - health, not performance still the concern
Kyle Seager - line drive machine
Jose Bautista - also losing third base eligibility
Chris Davis - showed Brandon Wood how to do it

Most Likely to Enter 2013 Top Ten

Miguel Cabrera - ya think?
Hanley Ramirez - him too
Brett Lawrie - after a year of maturation, should be ready to excel, though health still a concern
Mike Moustakas - increased production as the Royals lineup improves


Todd Frazier - will need full time at bats but power is real


Will Middlebrooks - dynamic debut before he got hurt, but free swinging ways will lead to some slumps
