As I have done each of the last nine years, I’ll be keeping a running list of the Top 100 Players Right Now as they are revealed on MLB Network, eventually compiling the entire list.

I’ll update this same space as they reveal the remaining entries.

The criteria for the list has changed slightly this season:

PREVIOUS YEARS
Top 100 Players Right Now Entering the 2020 Season

Top 100 Players Right Now Entering 2019
Top 100 Players Entering 2018

Back again for 2021!

Every year I compile MLB Network’s “Top 100 Players Right Now” in one place (in this here blog) which airs annually before the regular season begins.

Beginning in 2014, I decided to supplement those rankings by giving you a place to find all of the Top 10 Right Now lists as well.

PREVIOUS LISTS
2020’s Top 10 Right Now
2019’s list
2018’s list
2017’s list
2016
2015
2014

I’ll update this post over the weeks as the different positional episodes air on MLB Network in early 2021.

As I did last year, entering 2018, entering 2017, entering 2016, entering 2015, and the year before, and the year before, all the way back to the 2012, I’ll be keeping a running list of the Top 100 Players Right Now as they are revealed on MLB Network, eventually compiling the entire list.

They will have revealed all 100 by the end of Thursday, February 13th. I’ll update this same space as they reveal the remaining entries.

Each year I compile MLB Network’s “Top 100 Players Right Now” which airs annually before the regular season begins.

Beginning in 2014, I decided to supplement those rankings by giving you a place to find all of the Top 10 Right Now positional rankings as well. I continued with the 2015 rankings, again for 2016, here in 2017, at this link for 2018’s list, and you can find 2019’s list right here.

I’ll add to this post as the different positional episodes air on MLB Network.
