Third Base Dynasty Rankings for Fantasy Baseball

Bobby Witt Jr. - Fantasy Baseball Rankings, Draft Sleepers, MLB Injury News

We’ve made it to some of the top options in the game. Third base has five of the top-22 players in RotoBaller’s dynasty rankings and seven players in the top 50. The power you get from this position could help carry your team in the home run department.  

Big boppers are all over the board and there are some exciting players to look for when building your team. I love the list of players we’re about to look at. It seems the position is getting deeper as well as being great at the top. 

This list of 42 players will hopefully help you on your way to acquiring some of the most potent bats in the game. RotoBaller rankings are a great tool for your dynasty league as the creators do a nice job incorporating all kinds of information into their thought processes.

Preseason Thoughts 

As I mentioned earlier, I love this position. You have great prospects, all-star players, role players, great corner infield options, and ones that would be perfect for your utility spot if you need some extra power. There are some more versatile options in the middle and bottom of the list and that’s always a plus for fantasy purposes. Most of the players that play third base should stick here and some from shortstop may even transfer over to the position. 

Witt (2) is one of the players that has played shortstop and third base. He may be at shortstop for the immediate future but has third-base eligibility right now. He has plus speed, plus game power, and plus-plus raw power to go along with an average hitting tool. He didn’t walk a lot in the majors last season, only 4.7%, but he was at 9% in the minors in 2021. He should hold his own in the average department and could approach a 30-30 season as soon as this year. Even in a middling lineup, he creates enough opportunities to score and drive in runs and could approach 85-90 in both categories for years to come. 

Arenado (7) looks out of place that low, but remember it’s a dynasty league ranking and he’s almost 32. It’s hard to predict how long he can put up monster numbers as he has during his career. He also improved greatly from year one in St. Louis to year two. It could be for three years or maybe it’s for six years. It’d be hard to trade him right now if he’s a part of your team, but it would also be tough to sell the farm for him. He’s in a spot where he’s going to be great, but he’s probably stuck on the team that has him. If you can trade for him without paying a huge price, do it. Or if you’re in a new dynasty league, target him because you know what you’re getting from him for a few more seasons at least.

Walker (10) could be at the top of a list in a few short seasons, though it may not be the third base list. The top prospect will most likely move off third with Arenado in front of him. His game power and raw power are both 80 future tools, so his bat will play at any position. He does strikeout around league average so he may not be of help in the average department, but he can be a huge three-category contributor that adds in a good number of steals as well. Right now, he hits too many ground balls, a 1.45 GB/FB ratio in AA last season, but once he starts to lift the ball more, he can push for 35+ homers a year. 

Miranda (13) played 34 games at third base last season but didn’t have the pop of most of the players on this list. He had a .158 ISO and hit 17 homers between AAA and MLB. He produced a 117 wRC+ so he didn’t set the world on fire in his debut season but should produce more as he matures. He doesn’t have any plus tools, most of them checking in at average or plus average, but he does everything well. He won’t climb up the rankings much and might not reach 25 homers or a .300 average, but 20 homers and a .275 average would be good for your corner infield spot.  


Other Options 

Mayo (33) is a big man at third base, standing 6-foot-5 and 230 pounds. He doesn’t have as much projected power as Walker, but he has a lot of it himself and will most likely stick at third base if Henderson stays at shortstop; though he could move to the outfield like Walker. He’ll probably lose some speed as he gets older and worries more about his hitting, but he’s not currently slow for a third baseman. He struck out way too many times in AA, 34.5% of the time. Which held his average down, even with a high BABIP. Only 21, he still has time to move up these rankings and this will be a big year for him. A good season may see him in the big leagues at some point.  

Encarnacion-Strand (42) mashed at two levels for two different organizations last season. He hit 34 home runs with 114 RBI with ISO and wRC+ numbers through the roof. He struck out too much and didn’t walk enough but was still able to damage. He’s 23 and might start the year at AA again, so he’s a bit older, but he should get to the majors quickly after this if he continues to feast on lesser pitching.
