ESPN’s Buster Olney released his rankings of the Top 10 center fielders in baseball. Andrew McCutchen was ranked second on the list with the Angels Mike Trout on top. 

McCutchen came off yet another solid year at the plate. The five-time All-Star posted an .889 OPS along with a 145 OPS+ while becoming the first Pirate ever to win four consecutive Silver Slugger awards. McCutchen’s defensive metrics weren’t kind in 2015, but despite that, he still managed to be a five-win player (5.8 WAR).
