3rd base is fascinating at the moment. I like HRod as a sleeper there. I'm not so sure the organization is committed to Frazier as a regular 3B -- they may still prefer him as a utility guy. Because Didi has a great arm and is a natural SS, I think he may be a solution at 3B, too, if his bat develops. Give him time. HRod will be ready sooner -- but his profile as utility guy is so complete that it will be tempting for the organization to use him all over.
Lutz, Vidal, Waldrop, Barnhart, and either Buckley or LaMarre make up my five who just missed the cut (probably in that order). Additionally some of the bullpen guys like Hoover, Joseph, McMyne, Judy and Brackman (although he's starting now) could also find their way into the top 10 with a strong start to the season.
Agree that DiDi could also be a candidate at 3B, but I think H-Rod makes more sense to shift over there immediately. Similar to Soto, I would shift Lutz and Buckley to LF immediately.
