There isn't a better No. 24 or player, arguably, in the game than Miguel Cabrera.

With just a little over a month of baseball left, it’s a fair time to evaluate players’ 2013 production.

While there are many analytical pieces detailing the best players at each position—or even who would comprise a hypothetical second-half All-Star team—breaking down the best players by jersey number is a uniquely fun task. 

Players will be evaluated on a wide range of criteria, specifically position scarcity, advanced hitting metrics like park-adjusted OPS+, defensive tools like Baseball-Reference.com’s dWAR (defense WAR) and FanGraph’s UZR/150, as well as the all-encompassing bWAR.

Below is the best current MLB player wearing each number from 1 to 25.

 

All statistics sourced (through Aug. 22) from Baseball-Reference.com and FanGraphs.com.
