With catchers and first basemen in the bag, the B/R MLB 300 now turns its attention to second base.

We have 25 second basemen to get to, and this year we’ll be scoring them differently than in the past. Second base has experienced a huge power spike, setting records for home runs and slugging percentage, so the power category looms larger this year:

  • Hitting: 30 points
  • Power: 30 points
  • Baserunning15 points
  • Defense: 25 points

Before we move on, here’s a reminder that this year’s B/R MLB 300 is different from past versions in a key way. Rather than use the events of 2016 to project for 2017, the focus is strictly on 2016. Think of these rankings as year-end report cards.
