Second Base:

Second base has been manned by Neil Walker for basically the entire season and while Neil is often criticized for his lack of defensive range and slow base-running he’s actually been a surprisingly efficient base-runner in 2015. His numbers show that despite his speed, he’s been above average at running the bases.

The Pittsburgh Kid has been a solid base-runner for most of the season. How does Korean Jesus compare?
