With the regular season a little over a month away from starting, we have been taking a look at the projected starters at each position. After ranking the center fielders, let’s move on to the American League right fielders.

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

1

Aaron Judge, Yankees

One of the premier power hitters in the game, Judge has 110 career homers in 396 games. While he strikes out a ton, he also draws plenty of walks and owns a career .952 OPS (.921 in 2019). He’s also a great right fielder with an arm that can be rivaled by few.

2

Joey Gallo, Rangers

A wrist injury unfortunately shelved Gallo for much of the second half of 2019, but he was marvelous in the 70 games he appeared in. Much like Judge, he strikes out often, but he also walks frequently. He batted .253 last year with a stellar .986 OPS and 22 home runs (combined to hit 81 from 2017-18). As a big guy, he didn’t look out of place in center field last year but may be better suited in right.
