As fans and followers of sports, we tend to only take into account what players have done for their teams as of late. Their success from the season before has corresponded with bigger salaries, more media exposure, higher fantasy rankings and a higher level of respect and dependence.
While the trend for good players is to evolve in the game and continue to get better, there are also those who accomplish statistical breakouts that should warrant some sort of speculation.
Whether pitchers explode for an exceptional strikeout-to-walk ratio, hitters post huge power numbers that exceed anything they've done in the past, or the simple breakout seasons that players provide every April to October, we need to look at the facts and be more realistic with our calculations.
The players on this list are highly respected, highly valuable and significant parts to their team's success.
With that said, many of them have overachieved or have produced inflated stats making these 10 names the most overrated players in the MLB.
