Pre-Season 2010: Third Base Rankings
Cody Crosby, FantasyJuice.com

FantasyJuice's experts have independently ranked their top 30 third basemen heading into Spring of 2010.

Alex Rodriguez continues to hold the top 3B spot while Evan Longoria produced at a solid clip in 2009 to take the number-two spot.

David Wright lost his pop in the new Met's stadium but the FantasyJuice experts expect him to bounce back a bit. His speed and eye are still there, making him a valuable fantasy asset.

Ryan Zimmerman smoked the ball in 2009 and is expected to post similar numbers this season.

The experts aren't buying into Mark Reynolds' 2009 season but still believe he will post high power numbers while losing a bit of speed.

These rankings will be updated during the winter to reflect anticipated performance based on winter discussions.
