Last season, I wrote a series of articles breaking down my position-by-position power rankings as the season progressed.

With spring training games set to kick off this week and the regular season fast approaching, now is as good a time as any to put together my preseason rankings for 2015.

What follows will be a look at the 10 best players at each position, based simply on how I expect them to perform in the year ahead.

I’ve taken into account their all-around offensive abilities, their defensive contributions and then what they have meant to the success of their respective teams.

To put it another way, think of it as though you were building a team to compete for just the 2015 season. This is the order in which I would select players at each position to build said team.


Note: Also included among the statistics for each player is a column labeled “100” with either a number or NR. This is a look at where each player ranked in a recent article running down the top 100 MLB players at the start of spring training.
