Pre-Season 2009: Second Base Rankings
Cody Crosby, FantasyJuice.com

Continuing the countdown to Spring Training, FantasyJuice's experts have independently ranked their top 25 second basemen heading into Spring of 2009.

Chase Utley wasn't a unanimous pick at number one because of lingering questions over his injury.

Ian Kinsler's value has shot up because of a solid 2008 season. If he stays healthy in 2008, Kinsler can challenge Utley as the best fantasy 2B.

Alexei Ramirez and Dustin Pedroia had solid seasons and look to improve in 2009.

Second base is still a thin position in fantasy baseball so take a 2B early if you can.

These rankings will be updated during Spring Training to reflect position changes and Spring performance.
