Position-by-position MLB power rankings will once again be a staple this year, and as we have just passed the midway point of the season and turned the calendar over to July, it's time for another update.
What follows is a look at the 10 (or 15, in the case of outfielders) best players at each position based on the numbers they have accumulated up to this point.
I have taken into account players' all-around offensive abilities, their defensive contributions and what they have meant to the success of their respective teams.
Also included in my statistics is each player's Baseball-Reference WAR, or rWAR. While WAR is a useful stat in gauging a player's value, it is not the be-all, end-all stat that some view it as. As such, do not expect this to simply be a list of the top 10 in WAR at each position.
So with that, here is a look at the top players at each position here in July. There has been a good deal of shuffling once again and several new players join the ranks this month as well, so this is a much different-looking list than a month ago.
