Mark Grudzielanek began his major-league career as a starting shortstop for his first four full seasons - 1996 - 1999 - with the Montreal Expos and Los Angeles Dodgers. In 2000, the Dodgers moved Grudzielanek to second base, where he spent the final 11 seasons of his career. Grudzielanek won a Gold Glove at second base in 2006 as a member of the Kansas City Royals.

Player won-lost records view Mark Grudzielanek as an excellent defensive second baseman for much of his career. The next table shows the top 25 players in net fielding wins at second base since Major League Baseball's first expansion, in 1961.
