Perry takes a look at the players that fall in between 90 and 81 on his scale.
90- Marco Estrada
The 32 year old pitcher took a big jump in 2015 with the Toronto Blue Jays. He became a staple in their rotation and threw a career high 181 innings. He has the ability to keep his team in games and will be an important member of the Blue Jays staff in 2016.
89- Albert Pujols
The former Cardinal great has not been the dominate player that he was when he was younger. He has been plagued with injuries but had a major bounce back year in 2015. Though his average will never be where it used to be, he hit an impressive 40 homeruns, a feat that he has not been able to reach since 2010.
88- Ben Zobrist
Last season Zobrist was traded at the trade deadline to the Kansas City Royals where he won the World Series. Zobrist has alawyas been an above average utility infielder but cemented himself as a second baseman last season. Zobrist is a reliable option and has postseason experience that will help the young Chicago Cubs make a playoff run in 2016.
87- George Springer
The 26 year old outfielder has the potential to be much higher on this list. The Astros outfielder has all the tools to become a top 5 player in the MLB. Springer is a five tool player and if he puts things together in 2016, he can become one of the best players in the MLB.
86- Ian Kinsler
Kinsler has been an all star second baseman throughout his career. He has the ability to hit for average while also hitting double digits in homeruns and steals. Kinsler is an ironman playing in at least 100 games every season of his career.
85- Russell Martin
Russell Martin had a bounce back year in 2015, earning himself an invite to the all star game. The Canadian catcher has shown that he has the ability to hit the ball out of the park by hitting 23 homeruns in 2015. A healthy season and a stacked Blue Jays lineup should help Martin have another impressive 2016 campaign.
84- Todd Frazier
The 30 year old 3rd baseman was traded to the Chicago White Sox last offseason. Frazier came off of another impressive campaign including winning the all star game homerun derby. Frazier will benefit from the move to a better team and a winning atmosphere in Chicago.
83- Jonathan Lucroy
The all star catcher is coming off a down year in 2015 and is looking to bounce back in 2016. There are many trade rumors around Lucroy this season
82 Ryan Braun
In 2014 there was a lot of speculation if Braun could bounce back after being suspended for PED. Since then Braun has been able to prove himself. He hit an impressive .285 /.356 /. 498 slash line in 2015 with 25 homeruns and is looking to continue his success in 2016.
81 Andrelton Simmons
The young shortstop has cemented himself as a staple in the Atlanta Braves infield. Simmons is a wizard with the glove but is only average at the plate. If Simmons can improve at the plate, he can become a top 5 shortstop in the MLB.
