Brian Dozier's singular play

USA TODAY Sports

We've seen second basemen make diving stops. We've seen second basemen spin around on the ground. We've seen second basemen make accurate throws from their knees. I don't believe I've ever seen a second baseman do all three of those things in such quick succession:

Dozier's 26, has started 158 games in the majors, and features a .287 career on-base percentage. There's a good chance that he's never going to hit. Last year he played shortstop decently (at best) and didn't hit at all, which made him a sub-standard major leaguer. Wisely, the Twins moved him. This year he's played second base quite well and hit a little, which has actually made him a good major leaguer. Assuming a typical career arc, Dozier should remain a solid performer for at least another two or three seasons. The Twins have a lot of problems, but Dozier's not one of them.
