The Second Baseman Market

Is your team weak at second base?  Perhaps you’ve been suffering through Asdrubal Cabrera and his .506 OPS?  Take a gander at MLBTR’s list of available second basemen, and make a deal.  Are we missing anyone?

  • Brian Roberts, Orioles.  There have been rumblings that Roberts may be off the market.  He should be available come July, though.  The asking price will be high.
  • Ray Durham, Giants.  Sure, you can have him. The power’s gone, but he does have a .366 OBP.  Since Durham makes $7.5MM, this will just be a salary dump.
  • Ronny Cedeno, Cubs.  Cedeno can handle short, too.  He seems to be progressing and could be a nice trade chip for the Cubs.  Mike Fontenot might be more expendable, though, since he can’t play short.
  • Mark Grudzielanek, Royals. Same old Grudzielanek, hitting his standard .300.  He’s earning $4MM this year.
  • Tadahito Iguchi, Padres.  Seemed rejuvenated by last year’s trade, maybe it’ll happen again.
  • Mark Ellis, Athletics. Impending free agent, fine defense. He’s a borderline Type A free agent, so it’d take something decent to acquire him.
  • Felipe Lopez and Ron Belliard, Nationals.  Neither is doing much with the bat.
  • Mark Loretta, Astros.  He’s more expendable now that Kaz Matsui is back.  They might want to keep him around until Ty Wigginton settles in.
  • Juan Uribe, White Sox.  He was placed on waivers in March, and was a rumored possible cut earlier this month.
