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

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

Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, and Jimmy Rollins are consensus 1-3 picks, respectively. Ramirez is in a class all his own with legit 30/40 potential...maybe even 40/40.

Stephen Drew's value skyrocketed due to an impressive 2008 campaign. Look for his numbers to improve again this season.

Rafael Furcal and Troy Tulowitzki have fallen in value due to injury plagued seasons. Look for both to bounce back this year.

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