Jean Segura, late-round steal (USAT Images)Milwaukee shortstop Jean Segura is owned in just 35 percent of Yahoo! leagues, typically drafted as nothing more than a final round flier when he's selected at all (ADP 269.4).
If his position happened to be well-stocked with reliable fantasy assets, then I'd understand the relative lack of interest. But short isn't some talent-rich spot. Beyond the top-10, it's a position loaded with ifs and maybes and no-[expletive]-ways. Just check the ranks.
(To cite one example: Colorado's Josh Rutledge is 100 percent owned, despite setting off all the Brandon Wood alarms. That dude might draw six walks this year and strike out 8,000 times. Rutledge crashed hard at the end of 2012, hitting just .176/.236/.284 with 26 Ks over his final 110 plate appearances. This year, we can't stop drafting him. Segura? Crickets).
