Top 100 MLB players: Nats' Max Scherzer, Dodgers' Cody Bellinger in top 10; Phillies' Bryce Harper misses first-half cut
A look at the best of the best from the first half of the 2019 baseball season
86. Manny Machado
SAN DIEGO PADRES 3B
Machado has met expectations in his first season in San Diego. He's been an asset at third base and capable at short while producing in line with career norms at the plate.
80. Hunter Renfroe
SAN DIEGO PADRES LF
The .308 OBP through 81 games played isn't ideal, but Renfroe more than makes up for it with his .613 SLG and 27 homers.
75. Chris Paddack
SAN DIEGO PADRES SP
The rookie Paddack has sparkled thus far for San Diego: 2.84 ERA with 87 strikeouts against 18 walks.
33. Fernando Tatis
SAN DIEGO PADRES SS
It says here that Tatis is the most exciting player in baseball. He's also been one of the best, as the Padres' shortstop has slashed .327/.393/.620 with 13 stolen bases. If not for a hamstring injury that cost him more than a month, Tatis would be near the very top of these rankings.
