5 Second Base Sleepers

Each and every fantasy baseball season, there are simply not enough quality second basemen to go around. There are only a handful of studs and the rest of the field is more or less a crapshoot. To help you identity some players to grab, here are five of the best second base sleepers to grab in 2014 fantasy baseball drafts.

5. Brian Dozier, Minnesota Twins

Dozier moved over from short last year and quickly earned the everyday keystone position for the Twinkies. He posted disappointing .244 batting average, and it was rather concerning, but he still showed some serious pop. Dozier hit 18 homers last year, which was tied for fourth in the majors among second basemen. Dozier will be one of the best sleepers to target at second this spring.

4. Howie Kendrick, Los Angeles Angels

Kendrick is consistently one of the most overlooked second basemen in fantasy each season. However, Kendrick has an outstanding .292 batting average and has added double-digit home runs in four of the last five seasons.

3. Aaron Hill, Arizona Diamondbacks

Hill missed almost all of last season with various injuries, but he is ready to step back into his second base spot. He has posted an incredible .298 batting average (279- 936) over the last two years and has added 37 home runs. He is one of the best sleepers in all of fantasy and will be a sneaky weekly option to look for after the top-10 come off the board.

Murphy has become a rock for the Mets over the last two years. He has missed just seven games over that span and has boasted a batting average over .285 in both campaigns. He may not hit 25 home runs, but he will do everything else for fantasy fans.

Gyorko is one of the best, young option at second in all of fantasy. He blasted 23 home runs last year as a rookie, including 15 home runs and 37 RBIs over the last two months alone. Gyorko is a serious power-hitter from the keystone spot and he should be watched very closely this spring.
