Notes 
 If you're taking Gleyber Torres as your second baseman, fine. No argument there. But if you're taking him as your shortstop, you're reaching. While young with a bright future ahead of him, thus far, he's proved to be a one-category standout with his power, and that's about it. He isn't bringing you the stolen bases or average that are needed to justify the cost with shortstop being so deep. Pass on him and fill another need."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
Keston Hiura was my favorite player to go after in 2018 first-year player drafts who wasn't named Shohei Ohtani. Yes, more than Luis Robert. I compared him at the time to prime Dustin Pedroia but with more power. Hiura's early returns were better than I had imagined. He's in the perfect ballpark, and he's at the shallowest position outside of catcher to justify this ranking - even with the high strikeout marks. Hiura is going to be a top-three second baseman in fantasy for the next decade."
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 As a 22-year-old, Gleyber managed 38 homers, 96 runs and 91 RBIs with a .280 batting average. There is still room for more growth and it would no surprise if he became an MVP candidate this year as a 23-year-old. There isn't enough speed to make him the top fantasy second basemen yet though.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
In his first year with the big league club, Hiura was every bit as good as advertised, going for 19 homers, 9 steals and a .303 BA in just half a season. We could very well see him among the top three in the position by year's end, but he isn't quite as safe as any of the options above him.
Bobby Sylvester - FantasyPros
 Gleyber had a monster season in 2019 and will be only 23 years old in 2020. A lot of people are fading him this season and I don't understand that much. He will help you everywhere except SBs and has the room to improve his average as well.
Michael Petropoulos - BRoto Fantasy
Keston Hiura is one of my most owned players and one of my favorite picks at ADP this season. You are getting what I call the "Sophomore Discount," which is when rookies blow up on to the scene and people are hesitant to fully buy into it. Hiura is a pure hitter, hits the ball ridiculously hard, and will bat in the heart of a solid lineup. Sign me up as he has clear 30/15 upside and room for more.
