Without McMahon at second base, the Rockies top prospect is the top overall second baseman.

Having Rodgers above McMahon at this point is something that I think is a bit hasty but again, if McMahon was actually listed as a second baseman, I think his overall rating would go up and be higher than Rodgers.

For third base, though, there is obviously a much higher rated player there.

Arenado is among some exclusive company for the very exclusive 99 overall rating (the highest rating possible). Only Mike Trout, Jacob deGrom, and Max Scherzer have 99 overall ratings in the game other than Arenado.

For what his potential is and what he has done as a pro thus far, I think that Fuentes’ 70 overall rating is fair.

At shortstop, as you may expect, Trevor Story has the second-best overall rating on the Rockies.

For some versions, Rodgers is listed as a shortstop so he would be between Story and Stamets. Story also is as high as 92 in some areas. Either way, he is, far and away, the Rockies’ second-best overall player, which should not be surprising in the slightest.
