Best Multi-Position Players?

Postby slcdcricket » Fri Feb 25, 2011 1:22 pm

I usually like filling up my bench with a few multi-position players to add more flexibility. But what players in general have multi-position eligibility? Ben Zobrist comes to mind for me especially, Martin Prado as well.

Prado already has mulitple position eligibility. He played 98 games at 2B and 43 at 3B. He also got 5 games in at 1B, so for leagues that use that as being eligible he has 3 and will gain 4th this year in the OF.

I am a fan of Prado provided you are using him at 2B or a fill in at his other positions (1B/3B and OF this year). However, I feel having him be your primary 1B, 3B, or OF (check the OF...he'd be a solid OF) and you are going to be behind on the power curve that the 1B and 3B normally provide.

Agreed. Prado is best at 2B. But it's nice to plug him in another spot in a daily transaction league if someone's hurt/off.
