Considering it bunches him in with a bunch of $35 players I think taking him 1st out of that bunch at pick #8 is a very reasonable place for him. I don't see any reason to think he has more value than Cano though, positional scarcity of SS just isn't that much bigger than 2B in leagues with a MI slot and Cano has a healthier track record and has just been better so far in his career.
I think C are rated a bit too high in the action listing though, Santana in the 2nd round is just a horrible pick. Early C are a pure downside move, they just get hurt too often and the limited games makes it really hard for them to break out into a 1st round value. McCann is about where it is reasonable to start considering a C.
the values aren't necessarily saying where someone should be drafted, you have to take risk and consistency into account along with MDPs to determine the best draft spot for each player. obviously i'm not drafting napoli or santana that high because of the risk of catchers and the fact that I can probably grab one of them in the 4th or 5th rounds based on MDPs.
