2012 Top 10 Third Basemen Prospects

Like the shortstops, this is a strong class of third basemen with star potential grouping within the top 3 very different prospects. Dominican teenager Miguel Sano possesses power potential that may only be rivaled at the prospect level by Bryce Harper, though he's riskier than both Anthony Rendon and Nolan Arenado. Ultimately, I placed Rendon at the top spot because i feel that his defensive prowess combined with his lightning quick wrists make him a safe bet to become an MLB regular and occasional All Star.



1. Anthony Rendon - Bats: R Throws: R - 6'0 190 - WAS - 6.6.90. College: Rice. Drafted: 2011 - 1st Round (6th Overall).
