Troy’s Top 10: Second Basemen

5. Dustin Pedroia– Pedrioa could have been further down the list, but the issue is he only played in 135 games dealing with a concussion and a wrist injury last season. In those 135 games, the 31-year old hit .278 with a .376 slugging percentage and 53 RBIs. Pedroia won the second baseman Golden Glove Award for the American League, which I think was not deserved. Yes he did have the least amount of errors, but he also played in 30 less games than the man who I though should have won it (we’ll get to that guy later). The Boston Red Sox second baseman had a 4.7 WAR, which ranked seventh best among second baseman. Pedroia could have a bounce back season, and he is at the five-spot on this list due to his injuries last season.
