Stock Up, Stock Down for MLB's Top 25 Stars at the First-Quarter Mark

Buster Posey is having a good season, but has his stock gone up?

Major League Baseball stars are some of the most scrutinized athletes in the world. Some of that has to do with the fact that they play 162 games a year, and some of it has to do with the amount of money they earn.

Take Robinson Cano, for example.

Expectations for him are high enough based strictly upon his past performance. If he isn’t producing at an All-Star level, then he isn’t producing at all. Throw in an enormous contract, however, and his expectations suddenly become that much greater.

So, how are he and the rest of the top stars in MLB doing this year as the season reaches the first-quarter mark? Is their stock going up or down relative to the expectations they entered the season with?

Well, let’s take a look.
