Between Jose Bautista, Colby Rasmus and Melky Cabrera, Toronto has the potential to field an outfield of power hitters and rifle arms that can't be matched in the AL East.
Prior to injuring a wrist tendon last year, Bautista was becoming one of the biggest stars in the sport. Rasmus has always found plate discipline challenging, but can hit 25 home runs from the left side of the plate.
Considering how good of a hitter Cabrera has become, performance enhancing drugs aside, his two-year contract might have been the steal of the offseason.
Tampa Bay is projected to play Matt Joyce, Desmond Jennings and Ben Zobrist, from left to right, to open the season. Of course, all of that is subject to change.
First, the impending arrival of prospect Wil Myers can turn this into the best and most versatile outfield in the division. Second, Joe Maddon's fascination with platooning and positional flexibility gives Tampa a shot to get the most production from any outfield alignment.
Baltimore's duo of Adam Jones and Nick Markakis deserves more praise than they receive. It's the left field situation that will make or break this group. If one or both of the Nolan Reimold/Nate McLouth platoon can hit consistently, this outfield trio is as good as it gets.
As late as last week, Boston was projected to start Jonny Gomes in left field everyday. The potential of Jackie Bradley Jr. emerging as an Opening Day option for John Farrell changes the perception of this group.
Bradley Jr., Ellsbury and Victorino would give Boston three stalwart defensive outfielders and the potential for big offense in Fenway Park.
The impending arrival of Vernon Wells in New York completes the circus of a spring for the Yankees outfield.
Between the injury to Curtis Granderson and trials for Juan Rivera, Melky Mesa, Matt Diaz, Ben Francisco and Brennan Boesch, the Opening Day trio of Wells, Gardner and Suzuki leaves much to be desired.
