The hot corner is where the action is, as four players here might go in the first round of your draft … Kris Bryant is narrowly edging out Nolan Arenado per early ADP, but I’ll take Arenado and his home park over Bryant and his superior talent … Remember that Manny Machado has 3B/SS eligibility … Houston’s Alex Bregman is getting tons of hype, with an ADP ahead of guys like Evan Longoria, Justin Turner and Maikel Franco. I like Bregman a lot, but there’s some irrational exuberance going on here … You want a late-round sleeper? Nick Castellanos is your man. He’s got an ADP of 206, but was on pace for a 25-homer season before breaking his hand in early August. It’s not like people won’t know who Castellanos is, but most don’t appreciate him enough … Yoan Moncada is the farmhand to watch; he’s 3B-eligible but might play second base whenever he gets his promotion to the White Sox. He hit 15 homers and stole 45 bases at two levels of the minors last season, and is regarded by many as baseball’s top prospect.
