It is time to update the second baseman rankings for 2017 fantasy baseball with June halfway through.

1.  Jose Altuve:  It was close by the steals by Altuve gives him nod over Murphy.
2.  Daniel Murphy:  Hitting over .340 again and the power remains.  Wow.
3.  Robinson Cano:  Still going strong with the home runs and average.
4.  Starlin Castro:  As good a value as there has been in fantasy baseball this season.  Castro has fully unleashed the batting title average and power that was always spoken about.
5.  Trea Turner:  Rough start for sure with the DL stint and slump but Turner running at will and throwing in some homers.
6.  Jose Ramirez:  Slowed since a big first three weeks but Ramirez getting the job done as a firm top ten infielder.
7.  Jean Segura:  If not for two DL stints already, Segura would be right behind Cano.
8.  Brian Dozier:  Yeah I said to avoid Dozier as he was not going to hit 40 homers again and he remains average-challenged.
9.  Chris Owings:  Having a season like Castro but with a bit less on the numbers.  Still great value.
10. Matt Carpenter:  Back injuries early on impacted the average but Carpenter has been back to his old self of late.
11. Josh Harrison:  Ignored veteran joining Castro and Owings as forgotten guys who have put forth nice numbers.
12. Jonathan Schoop:  Tough using a no-speed guy at second but Schoop one of the best in terms of pure power there.
13. Rougned Odor:  Showing signs of coming out of his April/May tailspin but talent remains obvious.  
14. Chris Taylor:  What a surprise this kid has been with the power/speed/average game.
15. Dee Gordon
16. Marwin Gonzalez
17. Ian Kinsler:  Starting to finally fade.  It was fun.
18. DJ LeMahieu
19. Jedd Gyorko
20. Hernan Perez
21. Tim Beckham
22. Jonathan Villar:  Has been a colossal bust but you knew this would happen since I said it would starting in January.
23. Whit Merrifield
24. Jose Peraza:  Mildly disappointed here in what Peraza has done but at least he is running at a high clip.
25. Brandon Drury
25. Jason Kipnis
27. Neil Walker
28. Cesar Hernandez:  Loved how April looked but not much since.
29. Jed Lowrie
30. Brandon Phillips
31. Dustin Pedroia
32. Wilmer Flores:  Has hit righties and lefties this season to take his stock to another level.
