Figure most would agree the top 7 are Cano, Kipnis, Kinsler, Pedroia, Zobrist, Reyes, Andrus, but then it gets interesting.  My next three would be Asdrubal (assuming 2013 was just one of those years), Altuve, and Alexi, but arguments can be made for Lowrie, Hardy, and Dozier.  What do you think?  How would you rank these guys and others?  Any sleepers you eyeing?  Expecting big things out of Franklin and Miller in Seattle?  Counting on a bounce-back from Alcides in KC?

Would you rank the top 7 differently than I did?

Xander is SS/3B eligible and SS is his natural position.  He could be a major breakout player in his first full year.

Thanks for reminding me about him.  I might take a gamble and rank him 10th, figuring he is just as much a gamble as everyone else.

Depending on the Astros prospects coming up, Altuve could have a nice year (at great draft value) if Springer and Singleton are a part of that lineup next season hitting behind him.

I would hope so.  The Astros sure could use the help.
