Second base is not a position many teams draft for. Instead, players tend to settle at second base. Whether their defense isn't good enough for the left side of the diamond or they are blocked by perennial stars, players shift over to the position to get their offensive talent to the big league lineup.

Whatever the reason may be the second base position is still a position that is required for almost every Fantasy and Dynasty baseball league so let's take a look at the next crop of young players that could end up being fantasy contributors for the next decade.

Before we get into the top second basemen, don't forget to take a look at other prospect rankings listed in our 500+ dynasty baseball rankings, along with our full prospect and FYPD rankings.

Now let's get into the 2024 Dynasty Baseball top 10 second base prospects.

No. 10: Juan Brito, Cleveland Guardians

The switch hitter has seemingly been on the top of the second base prospect lists for a few years. After spending his first three seasons in the Colorado farm system he was shipped off to Cleveland for Nolan Jones in what could end up being a huge mistake.

In his first full season in the Guardian farm system, Brito was able to make splashes at times. He hit 14 long balls and compiled 75 RBI. His speed leaves us wanting more as he did steal seven bags in 2023 he was also caught another eight times.

No. 9: Jorbit Vivas, New York Yankees

One of the newer Yankees is not a big-name free agent signing this offseason, but rather a big-name prospect in the name of Jorbit Vivas, when the Yankees and Dodgers swapped prospects this past December.

Jorbit is a good hitter that had success at the plate. He doesn't strike out a lot. He's never had a K% higher than 17% in his five seasons in the Dodgers farm system.

He doesn't have a ton of power but he could end up reaching double-digit home runs in his prime. I have even heard loose comparisons to a fellow left-handed swinging second baseman in Luis Arraez.

No. 8: James Triantos, Chicago Cubs

James was the Cubs' second-round pick in the 2021 draft class and was originally drafted as a third baseman. However, since being drafted the organization has slid him over to the keystone position. Where his defense should be able to hold its own among the best.

He was a superstar at the plate in high school, which is why we saw his draft stock rise leading up to the draft. Since being drafted he has had success. Triantos has above-average bat-to-ball skills, displayed by his sub 16K%.

In addition, he just had a spectacular Arizona Fall League where he was named offensive player of the league. He made it to Double-A at the end of 2023 and should start the year there as well, as he continues to make strides towards the big league club.

No. 7: Justin Foscue, Texas Rangers

Foscue won't be the only second baseman from the 2020 class in the article. I was admittedly high on Foscue when he was drafted 14th overall by the Texas Rangers.

Foscue had a very prestigious career at Mississippi State when he led them to the College World Series multiple times. He would have a huge sophomore season before his junior year was cut short due to COVID.

Foscue is a below-average runner who will not contribute any steals. However, his approach at the plate and his ability to put up solid counting stats are fantasy-worthy.

No. 6: Nick Yorke, Boston Red Sox

Nick is a bat-first prospect who has seen some decent pop in his bat. He was the 17th pick in the 2020 draft by the Red Sox.

Nick has been able to hit double-digit home runs with at least 45 RBI and 45 R every year since being drafted. While speed isn't a huge part of his game, he has shown the ability to steal bases, including 18 swiped in 2023 at Double-A.

I thought Yorke had a chance to make the majors this season, but the recent acquisition of Vaughn Grissom may have put a plug in that idea.

No. 5: Adael Amador, Colorado Rockies

The Rockies' 20-year-old middle infield prospect was signed out of the Dominican Republic and instantly became a staple among the top second-base prospects.

After a few seasons in the low minors, Amador reached Double-A in 2023 where he had middling success. It was a small sample size but he left more to be desired.

He has gotten bigger and stronger since coming stateside and has seen his power numbers increase over the years and there is still upside for the soon-to-be 21-year-old.

No. 4: Matt Shaw, Chicago Cubs

I had to try to hold back my homerism on this ranking but I still gave Shaw an aggressive ranking on the list, however, I believe he deserves to be ranked this high.

Shaw had a monster season at The University of Maryland in 2023 where he slashed .341/.445/.697 with 24 HR and 18 SB. His 80 runs scored and 24 home runs were the second most in all of the Big Ten.

The monster season led the Cubs to draft him 13th overall this past draft and he continued his hot hitting in the Cubs' minor leagues when he finished with a 1.018 OPS across three levels.

No. 3: Jace Jung, Detroit Tigers

Jace is the younger brother of the 2023 Rookie of the Year candidate Josh Jung of the Texas Rangers. He followed Josh's dominant performances at Texas Tech where both of them won the conference player of the year.

Jace was the 12th overall pick in the loaded 2022 draft and was even selected ahead of fellow top prospects such as Zach Neto, Chase Delauter, and Drew Gilbert.

In his first full season in 2023, Jung continued his hot approach at the plate displayed by his 28 HR, 82 RBI, and a .878 OPS. The Tigers could end up with a corner-stone type player at the keystone position for many years to come if Jung can continue to develop and mature.

No. 2: Connor Norby, Baltimore Orioles

Don't look now but the Orioles have yet another top prospect knocking at the door. Norby was making a strong case to make the big league roster after a strong 2023.

Norby finished the season with 21 HR, 104 R, and 92 RBI and he also swiped 10 bags. The Orioles' big league team is full of former first-round picks and top prospects, however, Norby should find his way to the big league club in 2024, even if it's not with the Orioles.

No. 1: Termarr Johnson, Pittsburgh Pirates

Termarr is a prospect that was clumped together with all the studs at the top of the 2022 draft. There was a strong case to be made he should have been the first overall pick in that draft.

In addition, Termarr has a great offensive profile for a 19-year-old. In his first full season, he hit 18 HR with 59 RBI and a very impressive .860 OPS.

Termarr has the chance to mature and develop into a staple among the top second basemans.
