MLB Position-by-Position Player Power Rankings, July Edition

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.

My preseason rankings came out March 7, with subsequent updates coming on April 17 and June 3, all leading up to these July positional rankings.

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.


*Unless otherwise noted, all stats courtesy of Baseball-Reference and cover games through Thursday, July 3.
