After a stop at second base, the B/R MLB 300 will now go to the left side of the infield and check in with the top shortstops in Major League Baseball.

As with first base and second base, the list ahead features the names of 25 shortstops. The scoring system for them reflects how shortstop is an extremely important defensive position with low offensive standards:

  • Hitting: 25 points
  • Power: 25 points
  • Baserunning20 points
  • Defense: 30 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.
