Dustin Pedroia the best second baseman in MLB?

His next contract likely tied to Robinson Cano’s

MINNEAPOLIS — It’s not surprising to hear what two scouts from each league, who both have watched a lot of the American League this year, say about Dustin Pedroia.

“Nobody is playing his position better in baseball right now than Pedroia,” said the AL scout. “He’s playing out of his mind. The plays he’s making — you just don’t see that stuff every day, but you see it with him every day. Honestly, I’m surprised he doesn’t get hurt with the some of the extensions and the ranging he does. That’s special right there.”
