Here’s the 2015 Lester’s Legends NL-Only Third Base Rankings.
1. Anthony Rendon, Washington Nationals
Anthony Rendon hit .287 with 111 runs, 21 home runs, 83 RBI and 17 stolen bases last year. His main position is third base, but he played 28 games last year at second base to give Rendon positional eligibility and additional flexibility.
2. Todd Frazier, Cincinnati Reds
Todd Frazier hit .273 with 88 runs, 28 home runs, 80 RBI and 20 stolen bases. He has averaged 22.3 home runs over the past three seasons.
3. Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies
Nolan Arenado hit .287 with 58 runs, 18 home runs, 61 RBI and a pair of stolen bases. Already a two-time Gold Glove winner, look for him to take a step forward offensively.
4. David Wright, New York Mets
David Wright hit .269 last year with 54 runs, eight home runs, 63 RBI and eight stolen bases in 134 games. Staying healthy has been an issue the past few seasons, but when he is Wright is a five category contributor.
5. Kris Bryant, Chicago Cubs
Bryant will start off in the minors so the Cubs can push his clock back, but he should be up mashing in a few weeks. Bryant hit 43 home runs in 138 games combined in Double-A and Triple-A last year.
