1. Francisco Lindor – CLE

Like third base, the shortstop position is flooded with young talent that could all be MVP-worthy throughout their careers. I’ve been most impressed by Francisco Lindor. I love a switch hitting shortstop that hits in the heart of the order. Lindor won a gold glove in his age 22 season and helped lead the Indians to a World Series. Seager, Correa, Bogaerts, Russell, and Turner all played 2016 in their age 23 season or younger. Lindor just stands out among the very deep group and who I would build my franchise around. He hit .310 throughout the 2016 Postseason like he had been playing in the league for 8 years. The maturity of this kid’s game is above all else at short.
