The American League Central Division is filled with many talented players heading into the 2011 season.

Some of them have been around for many seasons and have become great veterans and leaders in the clubhouse, while others are younger up-and-coming stars, looking to make their mark in the big leagues.

Some of these players right now could be Hall of Famers, while others have the full potential to become not only All-Stars in the Majors, but Cooperstown bound as well.

Injures and lack of production have also hurt some of the players on this list in the past, so they will be looking to bounce back in 2011. In just one week, the boys of summer will finally be back, in search for their destiny this season.

The division is still up for grabs, but could very easily be determined by many of these players.

Here are the top 20 AL Central players to watch in 2011.
