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 each day and unveil the top 25 Tuesday with a special edition of "Baseball Tonight" (8 ET, ESPN2 & WatchESPN).
To compile the top 100, we polled more than 60 ESPN experts in February and March, and started with a list of more than 300 players. Using a 0-to-10 scale, the experts evaluated the players based only on how well they will perform in 2015. Players expected to miss 2015 because of an injury were not included.
Left-handed starter is deep at the top with a number of stars. However, it falls off some after that.
Editor's note: This list was put together before the news that Hyun-Jin Ryu had an MRI on his left shoulder. For now, the injury looks short-term, so he remained in the top 10.
