And I've heard plenty of chatter that he wouldn't even end up as a SS, too.
That's just speculation. The same was said about Lowrie and probably a half dozen other MLB shortstops. But he's at least 2 yrs away (probably more) regardless of what position he plays.
A couple of other guys (not prospects anymore) are Alexi Casilla who played plenty of SS in the minors (depends on who else is in the Twins MI next season) and Alexei Ramirez if Cabrera leaves after this season.
Ramirez has pretty high ownership numbers, but yeah, he might get moved to SS. OF course the White Sox could also go after a free agent SS, since its not like they have a decent 2B replacement for him. I love him, having banked him in my rookie/Milb draft this year.
Couple other guys I forgot, Hu, who could wind up the starter in LA if Furcal leaves as a free agent, was highly regarded before struggling this season in limited at bats, and De Jesus, also in LA, who has been the best SS in their system this year.
