While 2 of those 3 have already moved from 3B. If you specifically want a 3B, the answer is Alvarez. It doesn't seem very likely he stays at 3B his entire career though. Take out position an Alvarez is the best prospect anyways.

Thx for the feedback:

Josh Vitters and Mike Moustakas are not listed on Yahoo as available but I will keep an eye out. (lots of good stuff on the internet about both)


If Wallace comes up he will be 3b/1b elg.

Wallace will only be 3B eligible for this year only. The same likely goes for Viciedo. Alavarez is the guy you want. I like Alvarez over Mous as well.

Out of the 3 the order id put them in is Alvarez, Wallace, Viciedo. As for Moustakas and Vitters added in...id go with Mous (long term, less likely to succeed), Alvarez, Wallace, Vitters, Viciedo.

A little info on the guys who are available now:

Alvarez: Going to be a power hitting 3b. He will not hit for average at the MLB level. Likely to have Adam Dunn like HR and AVG. Something probably around a .260 avg and 30+ HR. Alvarez long term could become a 40+ HR guy.

Wallace: He is going to be a well rounded hitter. He probably wont be much of a big time power guy likely sitting around 25 HR but should hit for a nice average at or around .300

Viciedo: Still raw compared to the other two, but is supposed to have great power. Has poor discipline at the plate and has a lot of things to work on. My ceiling would be 30 HR, .270 type hitter. My realistic guess is that if he remains a big power guy his average will suffer and will be around what i said above for Alvarez. Id give Alvarez a way better chance at succeeding though. Dont see viciedo as a 40 HR guy ever.

hope this helps, please leave feedback
