And we've reached our final top 20 recap for the infield, and, if you exclude the catchers, 3rd base is by far the shallowest position. 3rd base ain't great, y'all! This is the first position where there's guys at the tail end that I actively wouldn't have wanted on my fantasy teams, and guys like Yoan Moncada, Bobby Dalbec, Alex Bregman, KeBryan Hayes and Alec Bohm all stunk, and didn't even come within a sniff of the top 20 3rd basemen. To recap my recap before the recap, this final ranking is from our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater with my comments. This is not for next year. Anyway, here s the top 20 3rd basemen for 2021 fantasy baseball and how they compare to where I originally ranked them:
Boston Red Sox designated hitter J.D. Martinez is included on the roster for the American League Division Series against the Tampa Bay Rays, which begins Thursday.Martinez was questionable after injuring his ankle tripping over second base while running out to play defense in the final game of the regular season Sunday."He is doing OK," Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Wednesday, according to MLB.com's Ian Browne. "He is moving around. We'll see what he can do today. The goal is for him to do a few things today physically and, you know, we'll make a decision, obviously, tomorrow morning."Boston's full roster for the division series is below.Position players PLAYER POSITION Kevin Plawecki C Christian Vazquez C Christian Arroyo 2B Xander Bogaerts SS Bobby Dalbec 1B Rafael Devers 3B Travis Shaw 1B/3B J.D.

The atmosphere at Fenway Park in Tuesday's winner-take-all with the Yankees was palpable. Our John Tomase was on the field after the win and shares how much the environment impacted some key figures.
