Note: this includes shortstops too.

It will be interesting to see if that success carries over to the postseason, another area of chronic underperformance for Cano; his .634 postseason OPS is 202 points below his regular-season mark, and he really stunk it up in last year's World Series.

Of his 203 H in 2006, 2 were as a DH, 2 were as a 1B, and 1 was as a PH.

Devans, your point is accurate, but I believe that "primarily played X" is the default meaning of all position references in these blogs, unless stated otherwise.

I suppose this list could be renamed 25+/200+ players who primarily played 2B.

I would replace "surprise" with "homegrown". Cano's been kind of a big deal for a while now. And Chris Shelton's never had a year like Cano''s.
