With spring training games underway, now is as good a time as any to put together our preseason position-by-position power rankings for the 2016 season.

What follows will be a look at the 10 best players at each position, based simply on how they are expected to perform during the upcoming season.

That’s an important distinction, as these rankings are not based on how guys played in 2015 but instead are a prediction of who will be the 10 best at each position this coming year.
