As the 2010 season progresses, will continue to keep a close eye on the ex-Yankees who were part of the 2009 World Series championship team, as well as the highly touted Austin Jackson as he plays in his first Major League season with the Detroit Tigers.

If there is anyone else you would like for me to add to this list of players, please leave a note in the comments section, and I will be sure to add him.

Of the players listed below, it is quite obvious that Hideki Matsui has been the most productive, as he is hitting above .300 with three home runs and eight RBI for the Halos.

Jackson is off to a very promising start in his young Major League career. He is hitting leadoff for the Tigers and is hitting .333 with six extra-base hits and five RBI. That is exactly the production you expect from a leadoff hitter. It is worth noting that he also has two stolen bases on the year.

PLEASE NOTE: The stats listed below are through Apr. 19.
