Top 3 Free Agent Second Basemen Still Available

It was one of the weakest positions on the free agent market from the start. Adam Frazier is the one big-name second baseman who's inked a new contract this offseason, and the pickings are slim from there. 

But there are a couple of viable big league second sackers still available in free agency, including one coming off a World Series appearance.

Jean Segura

After four years with the Philadelphia Phillies, Segura will be moving on. He finished his run there on a high, with seven RBIs during their postseason run to the National League pennant. 

He's a lifetime .285 hitter with 107 home runs and 205 stolen bases in 11 seasons. He's a two-time All-Star and has batted over .300 three times. He doesn't run like he used to, but he's still only 32, and he can certainly help some teams as their starting 2B. 

César Hernández

A durable veteran of 10 years with a .267 lifetime average. He's played at least 147 games in the last four full seasons. The 32-year-old has shown some pop in the past, and can put the ball in play. Troubling, however, is that his home run total of 21 in 2021 fell off a cliff this past season, to just a single, solitary dinger. 

Josh Harrison

The utilityman supreme, Harrison has done a little bit of everything in 12 years in the majors, compiling a .272 average with a .716 OPS, 71 dingers and 91 SBs. He's mainly a second baseman, but he's also played plenty of third, some shortstop, and a little bit of outfield. At 35, he's not much of a base-stealer anymore, but he's a nice swiss army knife off the bench.

Honorable mention to Jonathan Villar, who, while he had a dreadful season in 2022, went 18-14 (HR/SB) in 2021 with the New York Mets.
