The top ranked middle infielder behind only 'it guy' Wong. And I had fancied myself a real Cards fan. All could do was hang my head in shame. But now Domeboys has lifted the rock I had taken refuge beneath by suggesting Garcia ranks mid twenties, and is buried beneath 5 other middle infielders on the prospect depth chart, a position of sufficient obscurity to allow me to reclaim my sense of worth as a fan.The number of middle infielders we have to talk about is impressive.

Secondly, what value do you assign to a player that can legitimately play both SS and 2B?In my previous comment, I used middle infielder as a generic term that includes all second basemen and shortstops, hence the six names I listed.Since we are talking terminology, I will turn the tables and ask you a similar question. Who defines "legitimately" and does that mean the same in Double-A as in the majors? Because Oscar Taveras played centerfield most of 2012, is he being projected as a "legitimate" major league centerfielder? In my opinion, if one is not projected to be a major league starter, then the ability to play multiple positions is a plus. However, it is probably more of a real plus when the player gets there than a big swinger in my rankings of the player as a prospect.For example, I did not give Ryan Jackson and Pete Kozma special consideration because they had exposure to second base this season (at least not consciously). My primary focus is on them as potential major league shortstops.
