The hot corner was once the domain of power hitters hitting in the middle of the order. A new wave of players are showing off a more well-rounded skill set, with the occasional dual eligibility with other positions. Bobby Witt Jr. is one of those slash players — shortstop eligibility — and filled the power part with 30 home runs, but with 49 stolen bases he’s one of the best power-speed players in fantasy baseball.
Elly De La Cruz (13 HR, 35 SB), Gunnar Henderson (28 HR, 10 SB) and José Ramírez (24 HR, 28 SB) are other five-tool players occupying the hot corner, and the first two have multi-position eligibility.
