Brian Kenny hosts MLB Network’s 10-Part Countdown of the Best Players By Position in the MLB
Hosted by Brian Kenny, each Top 10 Right Now! ranking takes into account player performance over the last two seasons, a number of offensive and defensive metrics, both advanced Statcast data and traditional numbers, and expert analysis by the MLB Network research team. The Top 10 Right Now! series will feature analysis from MLB Network on-air personalities and former Major Leaguers Eric Byrnes, Cliff Floyd, Mike Lowell, Dan Plesac, Harold Reynolds, Hall of Famer John Smoltz, Jim Thome, Dave Valle and Preston Wilson, plus roundtable discussions with Kenny, President of SABR Vince Gennaro, The Ringer’s Ben Lindbergh and MLB.com analyst Mike Petriello.
For the second consecutive year, fans can submit a top-10 list for each position by voting on MLB Network’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages using #Top10RightNow. All #Top10RightNow votes will be incorporated into an overall fan-generated Top 10 Right Now! list in each episode.
