The Best 2022 Fantasy Second Baseman

Rankings are done in accordance with 5×5 scoring, meaning batting average, home runs, runs, runs batted in and stolen bases are the only stats taken into account for scoring.

The National League Rookie of the Year finished as a top-10 second baseman in fantasy in 2021 and we don’t see any reason to think he can’t do it again.

After an eighth-place AL MVP finish in 2020, Lowe showed the power was very much real, hitting 39 home runs, 99 RBI and 97 runs, finishing 10th in AL MVP voting.

7. Javier Baez  Detroit Tigers

Over the last three full seasons, Baez has averaged 31 home runs, 90 runs, 94 RBI and 17 stolen bases. Because of this, few players possess the upside that Baez does.

6. Jorge Polanco Minnesota Twins

The Twins switch-hitting slugger hit .269 with 33 home runs, 11 stolen bases, and nearly 100 RBI and runs, providing well-rounded value.

4. Whit Merrifield  Kansas City Royals

He finished 2021 with 40 stolen bases, which was second behind Starling Marte. With the MLB set to make the bases bigger, Merrifield could set a career-high pace in bags.

3. Marcus Semien  Texas Rangers

The Blue Jays second baseman showed that his 33 home runs in 2019 was not a fluke by hitting 45 home runs last year, and he finished third place in the MVP race.
