Good Second Basemen??

SDS

I feel like this game is very lacking in good second basemen. In a second baseman, I'm looking for...

  1. Great hitting
  2. Decent/above average speed (not required, but it is useful)
  3. Great fielding (for double plays, especially)

Recommendations please?

Joe Morgan

Tim Anderson is awesome with a secondary 2b.

SDS

Francisco Lindor

SDS

Aldaberto Mondesi. Hes the best card in the game.

SDS

Finest Mookie

SDS

Hornsby, he's not awful defensively

Why would you waste that god like arm at 2nd?

SDS

Too much competition in the outfield. Still fantastic reaction to offset modest speed at 2nd.

SDS

The only right answer is Gavin Lux. The man, the myth, the legend.

SDS

You are correct and it is the one position i really have not found my end game guy.
Morgan raked for me in the last event. Has speed, kills righties, defense is good for a 2b. Otherwise use one of the thousand SS with secondary position. Lindor, Seager, Story, Wagner, Correa, Joram, Mondesi, etc I also really like Mookie there.

Basically because there is a glut of great OF options. I love Mookie but it is hard to play him over Soto, Griffey, Trout and Mantle. I like starting him at 2nd and then moving him to the OF in the late innings to take Sotos spot. Mookie to RF, Trout goes from RF to LF.

SDS

Morgan, Betts, Seager, Mondesi. Chose one and be done with it

SDS

Ketel Marte is another one.
For me, it’s him and Mondesi in the middle infield. HRD Cano is a good backup.

I have the same struggle. There's no definite endgame 2B that I can put at 2b and leave there confidently.

SDS

Honus or Mondesi

SDS

The answer is Topps Brad Miller. Yes it’s his secondary but he’s still gold defense and he’s a monster at the plate!!

SDS

Cap should be at 2b
