The AL Central is home to a plethora of talented playmakers, both in the field and at the dish. It is home to three former MVPs (Justin Verlander, Joe Mauer and Miguel Cabrera) and three former Cy Young winners (Corey Kluber, Justin Verlander and David Price).
Still, despite all that talent, the AL Central is void of difference-makers at the third base position.
The group has no combined All-Star appearances and significant uncertainty due to the abundance of youth at the position. It includes 2014 All-Star snub Lonnie Chisenhall and the 2007 No. 2 overall pick Mike Moustakas. Also included at 2012 All-Star Futures Game MVP Nick Castellanos, 2004 Collegiate Baseball News High School All-American Trevor Plouffe and White Sox third baseman Conor Gillaspie.
This piece highlights the third basemen who occupy the division and ranks them, from 1-5, in reverse order from most productive to least productive.
