In the past three years, the expectation of most fans was that Yoenis Cespedes would be the team’s best hitter. But with Cespedes likely to miss at least half of the year, who will be the team’s best position player seems to be a wide-open race. We’re going to measure this by fWAR, which will move beyond just “hitter” and include elements of baserunning and defense, too. There are four choices, along with “other” for your consideration. If you select “other,” please elaborate who you think it will be in the comments section.
