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

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

Alex Rodriguez, David Wright, Evan Longoria, and Aramis Ramirez are consensus 1-4 picks, respectively. Longoria has reached his potential earlier than many imagined and could have a big 2009 in his first complete season.

Carlos Guillen and Chone Figgins have dropped considerably in rank since the previous season. Figgins doesn't put up the offensive numbers expected from 3rd and no longer qualifies at 2B or SS. Guillen had a terrible '08 and has to prove himself once again.

Ryan Zimmerman is a big question mark heading into 2009. Can he repeat his 2006 numbers? The experts are torn with widely variable rankings.

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