The 20 Most Overrated MLB Players for the 2015 Season


Being a pro baseball is tough work. Not only does it require some incredible hand-eye coordination when at the plate, but it takes a special kind of guy to deal with the grueling, 162-game schedule that lasts from February until, hopefully, late-October. And while I can appreciate the talents of the guys I’m listing here, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t a bit overrated as we get closer to another Spring Training. These guys have had productive seasons in the past and, heck, might even be in the argument for the Hall of Fame one day. But, at their current state, they aren’t anything more than guys who are either overpaid, over-the-hill and still carry weight because of their name, or a young star who hasn’t proven himself. These are the most overrated MLB players heading into the 2015 season.
