A look at the 15 projected starting center fielders in the National League

With the regular season a little over a month away from starting, we have been looking at the projected starters at each position. After ranking the American League center fielders, let’s take a look at their counterparts in the Senior Circuit.

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.

Cody Bellinger, Dodgers

The reigning NL MVP, Bellinger also won a Gold Glove in 2019 (albeit at right field, has made 74 career starts in center). It was a remarkable year all-around for the 24-year-old as he hit .305 with a 1.035 OPS, 47 homers, 115 RBIs, 121 runs, and 15 steals. He has connected on 111 home runs over his first three seasons.

Ronald Acuna Jr., Braves

Just 22 years old, Acuna won NL Rookie of the Year in 2018 and finished fifth in NL MVP voting in 2019. Last season, he hit for a .280 batting average, .883 OPS, smashed 41 homers, scored a NL-leading 127 runs, and stole a NL-leading 37 bags. He has one of the strongest arms at his position.
