Top 10 shortstops in baseball for 2017

There is no more exciting and rapidly developing position in the game today than shortstop. It has become a new beast over the past few years across MLB.

Andrelton Simmons did not disappoint in his first season with the Halos, as he amassed 2.6 WAR on defense alone as arguably the best defender in baseball, and if it wasn’t for an injury that cost him nearly forty games,...

JABO: Turning Andrelton Simmons’ Defense Into Offense

Say this for new Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons: He makes things pretty easy. You can look at the regular numbers, or you can look at the more complicated numbers, or you can just watch video of Simmons playing so you can evaluate him with your own eyes.

The Atlanta Braves shortstop, who won the 2013 National League Gold Glove, proved why he’s probably in line to win the award yet again.
