TOP 10 RIGHT NOW - RF

Right Field - For me, RF is a tricky one to rank. I tried to make sure they at least hit the bare minimum recs defensively...but I realize there are many who dont believe in those. So I factored in their bats first and used defense as a tie breaker.

1. Vladimir Gonzales - St Louis
2. Danry Garrido - Charolotte
3. Bob Sanders - San Diego
4. Patrick Yount - Arizona
5. Haywood Cust - Boston
6. David Torres - Cleveland
7. Ray Hitchcock - Atlanta
8. Ronn Carlyle - NY Mets
9. Don Hyun - Washington
10. Dummy Bourn - Chicago Cubs

TOP 10 RIGHT NOW - LF

Left Field - Left field is all about the power, I also heavily factored in their splits and a tie breaker was defense and speed.

1. DaRond Wall - Arizona
2. Fred Bristow - Vancouver
3. Matty Franco - Pittsburgh
4. Jeremi Petrov - St Louis
5. Edgmer Espinosa - NY Mets
6. Ross Winn - Charlotte
7. Ismael Mercado - Oakland
8. Dean Ashburn - LA Dodgers
9. Philip Hanson - Milwaukee
10. Artie Serrano - Tampa Bay

TOP 10 RIGHT NOW - CF

Center Field - Range and glove are very important for a CFer, but if they have great offense it can overcome poor defense. Speed and Durability also played a part in the rankings.

1. Enrique Marquez - Cincinnatti
2. Darryl Harris - San Diego
3. Ricardo Cortes - Baltimore
4. Brian Nakano - Tampa Bay
5. Alexi Lorenzo - Milwaukee
6. Naoto Chang - NY Mets
7. Galahad Justice - Detroit
8. Gil Olsen - Toronto
9. Carlos Mendez - Minnesota
10. Buddy Lowery - Arizona

TOP 10 RIGHT NOW - SS

Shortstop - I factored defense heavily into my decisions on this list, but having some power and contact were also a factor.

1. Lance Schneider - Cleveland
2. Al Estrada - Pittsburgh
3. Trent McMillan - LA Dodgers
4. Tatsua Hayashi - Chicago Cubs
5. Mark Uehara - Arizona
6. Louie Melendez - Cleveland
7. Hayes Glass - Oakland
8. Harry Gonzales - Texas
9. Yunel Reynoso - Minnesota
10. Yadier Hernandez - Chicago White Sox

TOP 10 RIGHT NOW - 3b

Third Base - Didnt really factor defense into the 3b position, but you at least had to meet the bare minimum requirements. Other than that just went with the better overall player in my opinion.

1. Pedro Coronado - Chicago Cubs
2. Joe Vance - NY Mets
3. Jose Morales - Atlanta
4. Brian Zheng - Pittsburgh
5. Todd Hentgen - Arizona
6. Pedro Fernandez - Tampa Bay

8. Julio Javier - San Francisco
9. Darrell Medina - Kansas City
10. Paul Mueller - Pittsburgh

TOP 10 RIGHT NOW - 2b

Second Base - To rank the second basemen they first had to qualify defensively, which means at least a 72+ glove and 70+ range. Even those are low for a 2b but if they have a big bat they'll make up for the lack of defense. Speed and Contact were also factors.

1. Rafael Alicea - Anaheim
2. Ramiro Ayala - Milwaukee
3. FP Collmenter - Boston
4. Josh Vosberg - Florida
5. Alvin Dunham - Arizona
6. Oswaldo Cairo - Baltimore
7. Alex Uribe - Vancouver
8. Benny Jacquez - Chicago Cubs
9. Mickey Camilli - Oakland
10. Dick Beltre - Atlanta
