Right field is the weakest outfield position of the three in the AL Central. In comparison if any of the top three left fielders were on this list they’d be first here.

In determining the rankings we will take a look at their 2014 stats in average, home runs, runs batted in, and steals. Analytically we will use their Offensive Wins Above Replacment(OWar) and Defensive Wins Above Replacement(DWar) as well.

Lastly, job security and season outlook also need to be taken into consideration in determining how safe their job is.
