That is assuming Moustakas stays at SS, I think he will end up moving. That is how I would rank it though

Cardenas is projected to move to 2b. All reports I have seen show Moustakas going to 3b also. I like the following order (based on fantasy potential):

1. Brignac
2. C Nelson (if he can find a team to play, Tulo blocking. maybe 2b?)
3. Triunfel
4. Andrus (not completely sold on his bat yet)
5. T Frazier

Here are also a few that I think could possibly make some noise this year (who aren't yet on the radar):

Brandon Hicks
Josh Rodriguez
Justin Jackson

where's the value in moving Moustakas? Are they going to trade him? KC has a pretty darn good, and young 3B named Alex Gordon..

I would guess that they move A Gordon to 1b when they want to bring Moustakas up. Remember, Moustakas still has a couple of years before he even thought of being an everyday guy in KC. The kid is only 19.

true true...

I'm glad somebody mentioned Todd Frazier. I think he will have a fast track to the majors.
