Who are the best players in Major League Baseball heading into the 2015 season? ESPN formed a panel of MLB writers, analysts and contributors to rank the top 100. We'll run through the top 10 lists at every position beginning on March 23 and unveil the top 25 on March 31 with a special edition of "Baseball Tonight" (8 p.m. ET, ESPN2 & WatchESPN).
To compile the top 100, we polled more than 60 ESPN experts in February and March, starting with a list of more than 300 players. Using a 0-to-10 scale, they evaluated the players based only on how well they will perform in 2015. Players expected to miss 2015 with an injury were not included.
We're kicking things off in the outfield with the top 10 center fielders for 2015. Not surprisingly, the top two -- Mike Trout and Andrew McCutchen -- are the same as last year. Five players dropped out of the top 10 from last year -- Matt Kemp (moved to right field), Coco Crisp, Austin Jackson, Michael Bourn and Dexter Fowler. Check out the list below to see who jumped into the top 10 for 2015.
