Robinson Cano comes in at No. 1 on the list.
The best middle infielder to draft in your upcoming draft in Robinson Cano.
Cano plays almost every day, appearing in more than 159 games in seven of his nine years in the league. Being on the field helps Cano, but even if limited he is still one of the best all-around hitters in the game.
Cano can get his numbers whenever he needs to. He can hit the long ball, he can drive a ball in the gap and he can also hit for average. The left-handed superstar signed a 10-year, $240-million contract with the Seattle Mariners this offseason, and Seattle's pitcher's park may drain a bit of appeal from his numbers, but he is still the best bet of the bunch.
Cano should be the first middle infielder taken during the fantasy baseball season. If he isn't, make sure you scoop him up as soon as possible.
