2021 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 25 Shortstops
Looking for comprehensive 2021 Fantasy Baseball rankings? Look no further, here are the top 25 shortstops in MLB.
With a little more than two weeks before Opening Day, fans are ramping up their research for the upcoming MLB season. Before then, Our Esquina is dropping their 2021 Fantasy Baseball Rankings by position, including updates, every day until the first pitch of the regular season is thrown.
Today, we’re going to rank the league’s top 25 shortstops. In what could arguably be the best era for shortstops, there are plenty of options to choose from in this list. However, there is a vast separation in talent between the top and bottom halves of this list.
Before we begin, these rankings are for head-to-head (H2H) leagues. Determinations were made by aggregating all projection stats, which can be found on FanGraphs.

On the Cusp
A few more shortstops you should probably consider are:
Willi Castro, DET – According to the data collected, Castro and Wander Franco are interchangeable at 25. Castro is hitting the cover off the ball in Spring Training (.333 / .375 / .700), a continuation of his performance last season when he hit .349 with a .932 OPS. You really can’t go wrong with Castro. Don’t be surprised if he jumps on the list in an update.
Amed Rosario, CLE – After being traded by the New York Mets for Francisco Lindor, Rosario finds himself in a battle for a starting position in Cleveland. Currently, he’s slotted as the team’s starting shortstop and if he can keep his job, he can be a good option for your team. Though he lacks power, Rosario can steal bases and slap hits effectively. Keep an eye on Rosario as a bench option in later rounds.
