Good question.

If a primary position is IF, the player can play 1B, 2B, SS, 3B for the shown dWar and fielding percentage with no penalty to either. A secondary position of IF means the player can play 1B, 2B, SS, 3B while keeping the same dWar but .05 fielding drop.

If a primary position is UT, the player can play ANY position for the shown dWar and fielding percentage with no penalty to either. A secondary position of UT means the player can play UT while keeping the same dWar but .05 fielding drop.

In your example, all three of those players could play SS for their shown dWar and .05 fielding percentage drop. The sim would only look at those two things, and would treat them no differently other than the different dWar and fielding percentage values.

IF and UT at a secondary position can be very valuable defensive replacements/bench players as they can cover you at many positions. Getting good players with these as primary positions gives you flexibility with team building, but that happens mostly in custom leagues in my experience.

If a player plays out of position entirely, they get a dWar penalty and "will commit a lot of errors." I am not sure what those exact numbers are, but I think dWar drops to 0 unless it was negative, then it stays negative and the fielding percentage takes a big hit.
