Final Elias Projections - AL Second Basemen

The statistics used for the rest of the infielders are PA, AVG, OBP, HR, RBI, fielding percentage, and total chances (PO+A+E). Because of the inclusion of fielding statistics, it is much harder for an infielder to post a dominating score than it is for an outfielder or first baseman. You can see that with Pedroia topping this group at 84.472.

Name TotalScore
Dustin Pedroia 84.472
Placido Polanco 83.851
Brian Roberts 80.745
Ian Kinsler 79.503
Robinson Cano 72.671
Mark Ellis 65.839
Akinori Iwamura 65.217
Jose Lopez 63.354
Mark Grudzielanek 63.043
Aaron Hill 61.491
Howie Kendrick 59.006
Maicer Izturis 55.590
Asdrubal Cabrera 51.553
Alexei Ramirez 42.236
Joe Inglett 41.615
Jamey Carroll 36.335
Alexi Casilla 32.298
Alberto Callaspo 31.988
Esteban German 31.677
Joaquin Arias 25.466
Josh Barfield 24.845
Cliff Pennington 22.050
Sean Rodriguez 18.323
Eric Patterson 6.832

Grudzielanek is the only free agent from this group, as Carroll and Ellis have both re-signed with their respective clubs. Tigers fans should pay close attention to second basemen next year, as it will have an effect on Placido Polanco's free agent classification.

So who is Type A and who is Type B? More specifically, what is Grudz?
