Tangotiger Blog:Fans Scouting Report: best fielders in baseball

​Last year, the top 4 fielders were tied: Crawford, Heyward, Simmons, Bradley.  This year, Brandon Crawford scrapes by for the win, ahead of Heyward, Simmons, Arendo, and Kiermaier.

Position by position, the best fielders:

C: Posey, Perez
1B: Belt, Goldy, Rizzo
2B: Baez, Pedroia
SS: Crawford, Simmons, Russell, Lindor
3B: Arenado, Machado, Beltre
LF: Marte, Gordon
CF: Kiermaier, Bradley, Hamilton, Inciarte, Marisnick
RF: Heyward, Betts, Puig, Eaton
Among players who spent most of their time at DH, but still played the field, the best was Pujols.  But, he would rank right around average among 1B.
