Second base is a pretty deep position heading into 2014 with the perennial number one at the position maybe in doubt as he heads to a new team. Robinson Cano will still be the number one 2B on most people’s lists but he is heading to the Pacific Northwest and a pitchers park at Safeco. What will his numbers look like? I believe he will still be a first tier player but not by much over some of the others. Another two-bagger making a home in a new state is Ian Kinsler, as he moves to Detroit. My only worry about Kinsler is that his hamstrings may not be able to get lose in the early and late parts of the season in the colder northern climate. Dustin Pedroia is good at everything but not great; consistency and the ability to hit for a high average are keys to Pedroia. Jason Kipnis probably has the most upside of this tier as he could still hit for more power and is the only player of the bunch under the age of 30.
