With the regular season about a month and a half away, we have been taking a look at the projected starters at each position. After going through infielders, we move on to the outfield starting with ranking the American League left fielders.

As a subjective list, many of the players can almost be considered interchangeable as to where they are ranked. Projected lineups were taken from Fangraphs.

1

Michael Brantley, Astros

Turning 33 on May 15, Brantley has been an All-Star each of the last three seasons. He hit .311 last year, and has hit at least .299 in each of his last full five seasons (played just 11 games in 2016). He’s one of the hardest hitters to strike out, and he hit a career-high 22 homers in 2019.

2

Austin Meadows, Rays

Meadows finished 14th in AL MVP voting in 2019, his first full season in the majors. His excellent year consisted of a .291 batting average, .922 OPS, 33 homers, and 89 RBIs. He slightly is below Michael Brantley due to Brantley proving to be better in the outfield.
