Dustin Pedroia, 2B

Pest on the field. Plus-defender. Very good range and arm. Does everything well. Tough out. Opposing pitchers will throw him a bad pitch and try to get him to chase. Instinctive hitter. Finds a way to get it done. Consistent at the plate. Swagger and presence make him good, and he knows it. -- Joe McDonald (Ed Wolfstein/Icon SMI)
