Elias Rankings Update

Eddie Bajek of Detroit Tigers Thoughts ran the Elias numbers for the NL infielders.  Thoughts:

  • Despite his injury, Orlando Hudson appears safe as a Type A.  The D’Backs could get a draft pick bonanza if Hudson, Adam Dunn, and Brandon Lyon are offered arbitration and sign elsewhere.  That won’t help them in ’09 though.
  • Casey Blake is a Type B; I could see him seeking a multiyear deal in a weak third base market.  The Dodgers may re-sign him, though.
  • Rafael Furcal seems to have neither Type A nor Type B status, due to his injury this year.  So the team that signs him does not have to worry about losing draft picks.
