The next stop on the 2016 Bleacher Report MLB 300 will be brief. It’s time to look at the top designated hitters in the league.

Only 15 teams get to use the DH, and relatively few of them have a full-timer at the position. We’re only going to look at the top five DHs for 2016. Due to their lack of defensive value, their scores add up to only 80 possible points:

  • Hitting: 35 points
  • Power: 40 points
  • Baserunning: 5 points

Before we move on, here’s a reminder that this year’s B/R MLB 300 is different from past versions in a key way. Rather than use the events of 2016 to project for 2017, the focus is strictly on 2016. Think of these rankings as year-end report cards.
