Hottest of the Hot Corner: Ranking MLB's Top 16 Third Basemen—No. 13

MLB 2010 - Rockies Beat Marlins 8-4
Part 4 of 16

No. 13 Jorge Cantu, Florida Marlins

Like many of his teammates, Jorge Cantu tends to fly under the radar. Last season, the Florida Marlins' player quietly racked up 100 RBI's along with a .289 batting average.

Cantu has spent his three seasons in Florida flip flopping back and forth between the infield corner positions. In 2010, he has started 22 of 25 games at the hot corner.

The 28-year old Texan is off to a fast start, looking to improve his power numbers from last year. While hitting .296, the third sacker has already banged out 6 home runs and driven in 25 runs. Having clubbed 28 big flies for Tampa Bay in '05 and 29 for the Marlins in '08, this could be the season he breaks the 30 mark.
