Third basemen

Wilson Betemit, Kansas City Royals (signed to minor league contract)

Seattle Mariners SS Jack Wilson
Wilson's work with a bat is a bonus

Positives for the career .258 hitter: his positional versatility (corner infield and shortstop in the past), his occasional pop and the Royals' recent trade of a similar commodity with both of these traits (Mark Teahen). Junior Circuit fantasizers should keep a relaxed eye on Betemit during the season but should pass on draft day unless the plague wipes out KC's infield.

Shortstops

Jack Wilson, Seattle Mariners (re-signed)

The M's locked up their '09 trade deadline acquisition for another two seasons. Wilson hit .224-1-8 in 107 at-bats with Seattle after a .267-4-31 effort in 266 Pittsburgh Pirates at-bats. Nothing changes here; Wilson ranks chiefly as a low-end AL-only shorty.
