Baseball’s Best of the Best

Since MLB Network kicked off their annual Top 10 Right Now series, I thought it was an appropriate time to do one of my own. Each position on the diamond has been broken down, showcasing its greatest players going into the 2020 season. These rankings have been made on account of players’ recent performance as well as a projection into the near future. You will find veteran players scattered throughout all lists and even players coming off of their rookie seasons. Of course, these rankings stem from my own personal opinions and philosophies relating to the sport. Some will agree and some will disagree, which is the beauty with these types of discussions. Here are the Rankings.
