Robinson Cano is the stand out at second base. Look for typical Cano numbers the rest of the way. Brandon Phillips is a very consistent player also and you should feel very good if he’s manning 2B for you for the remainder of the year. Jose Altuve just keeps on hitting. He’s batting .292/.393 with 6 steals since August 1st.

If you can handle his batting average, Danny Espinosa is a great 2B option. He has 13 homers and 17 steals. Heck, when you look at it, his average really isn’t all that terrible, he’s batting .255. Rickie Weeks has been heating up lately. He’s hitting .302 since the beginning of August and should be decent down the stretch.

Marco Scutaro, Gordon Beckham, and Dustin Ackley are all very weak options, but can provide a home run here or there and the occasional steal.

**Neil Walker was diagnosed with a dislocated finger earlier tonight after he was removed in the top of the first inning. If he’s out for a month (a guess), I’d move him down into the 15 range.
