    Ranking by Position Group: Corner Infielders

    1. Juan Francisco, 23, L
    2. Yonder Alonso, 23, L
    3. Todd Frazier, 24, R
    4. Danny Dorn, 25, L
    5. Neftali Soto, 21, R
    6. Junior Arias, 18, R
    7. Carlos Sanchez, 19, L
    8. David Vidal, 20, R
    9. Chris Richburg, 24, R
    10. Ariel Baez, 19, R
    11. Donald Lutz, 21, L
    12. Robert Maddox, 21, L
    13. Dominic D’Anna, 21, L
    14. Oliver Santos, 23, R
    15. Mike Costanzo, 26, L

    I realize that most would place Alonso ahead of Francisco. I'm not looking for another debate on that subject; this is merely how I, for one, would order them. As an item of reference for the top 40--which is what this exercise is all about--I readily acknowledge that Alonso would be the consensus No. 1 for this position group.

    I like that you have Junior Arias listed as a 3B instead of a SS.

    Yeah, there are several guys here who may or may not end up on a corner. I put Frazier here because third base seems like his most natural position, but he could easily wind up in the outfield--and I should probably include him in those rankings, too. Same with Dorn. I guess Arias is still mainly a shortstop for the time being, but it's hard to see that lasting. Soto could become a catcher, and so could Vidal.
