Major League Baseball will return for a 60-game season and we’re here with our 2020 second base fantasy baseball rankings to help you prepare.

Welcome to the 2020 MLB season! It’s here? Well, a version of baseball is hopefully here for 60 regular season games. There’s still a month to go until the first games are played which is plenty of time for the earth to be taken over by the Cat-faced Dog People of Centauri 37. But, we will continue to act like baseball and more importantly, fantasy baseball will happen.

A 60 game season with players possibly missing time due to being quarantined, could be a huge dumpster barge fire. But here at DraftKings Nation, we are the positive, happy people! Let’s do this thing!

Second base isn’t deep, but it’s not as shallow as it looks at first glance. The trouble is, the position is weaker at the top than other positions. Jose Altuve remains my No. 1, but it’s a close cal with Gleyber Torres, as Altuve’s stolen base numbers have dropped while injuries have popped up more often.

I will likely be looking toward Ketel Marte if I get a second basemen early-ish, as I like his recent trajectory, but I won’t reach for the position, as there’s not much reason to. Sleepers abound for second base, with players like Scott Kingery, Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Tommy Edman, Ian Happ and so-on and on.
