The season is about to begin and rosters are beginning to take shape. Once again, the AL East is expected to be one of the strongest divisions, with some of the best hitters and pitchers in the majors.

The Yankees are expected to take the division again, but the Red Sox and Rays have made some moves to nip at their heels. The Blue Jays are improving, although they are likely destined for fourth place again. The Orioles will almost definitely stay in the cellar, even if they finally reach the elusive .500 mark.

The biggest additions to the division are Michael Pineda, Hiroki Kuroda, Andrew Bailey, Sergio Santos, the return of Carlos Pena, Francisco Cordero and Wei-Yin Chen. This pitching-heavy offseason for the division will likely be reflected in the rankings by position.

Here are the top players at each position in the AL East.
