Will someone with more experience try to tell me if Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Tyrone Anderson 's range or glove will get high enough to play second base. 

Also will Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Fernando Johnson 's range and glove get good enough to play cf.

Thank you in advance.

If you can tolerate 75/70, he can play 2B.

Yes, he'll be a competent CF at worst.

#1 could be a below average defensive 2B

#2 is definitely a CF

 Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Horacio Vazquez is an example for Tyrone Anderson. I played him at 2B last year and won the World Series, although he certainly was not there for his defense. 1 plus play, 7 minus plays, .986 fielding percentage. Not ideal, but if he can hit, you can definitely get away with it. He did drop 3 range then, so he was 77/74 range/glove instead of the 74/74 you see now

His def stats are way better then I would have thought.  Hmm interesting.

Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Robin Petersen might not be the best example because his range is so high but he's changed my mind about 70 glove at 2B.   In the 1.5 season equivalent, he's only made 12 errors.    That's 8 per year.   I can live with that.

FJ should get to 87-88 range and 75-76 glove with a 20m training budget and competent FI..

Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Heinie Aardsma at 75/66 was a bit a ***** at 2B.  17 errors and 8 negative plays in 140 starts.   That's pretty rough.

That would be ok for me for a 2nd baseman but not a cf'r. 

Thank you.  Im trying to make plans for the next few seasons and dont wanna screw it up more then normal.

Second base seems weird to me.  I've had a guy who should have been stellar make 17 errors in his peak season.  Others seem to get by with sub-par ratings guys who make fewer errors than that.

Just as a reference - I have Hardball Dynasty – Fantasy Baseball Sim Games - Player Profile: Glen Ramsay as my 2b. range/glove - 73/71 (last season). Last season he recorded 9 errors (.987 fielding %), 6+ and 4 - plays over 159 games (1330 innings).

Anderson will end up with numbers that makes him a decent 2B.  He isn't currently.  Ditto Johnson and CF.  Basically it looks like you were too agressivein getting these guys to the majors.  A yer of AAA and then 20 more games was a prudent decision...unless these guys are going to make the difference between moving through the playoffs or not.  You had other options it looks like...but on the other hand, you're 70-36....so what do I know?
