The season's not quite over yet, but with just about a week remaining, not much will sway the statistics enough to change a player's appearance as either an underrated or overrated performer.

At times the distinction can be hard to tell.

On the surface the numbers may indicate that a player is at the top of their game for their position. A deeper look at the statistics can tell an entirely different story. Maybe that player is getting significant help from their surrounding cast, or perhaps their numbers are inflated by meaningless situations.

On the flip side of this argument, there are always a handful of players who have performed solidly for their teams and gone relatively unnoticed or at least not garnered the attention their statistics deserve.

These underrated players are often the unsung heroes of many games along the way to a team's ultimate goal of postseason baseball and a chance to play deep into October in a quest to win a World Series ring.

 

This is my list of the players I would place on the all-overrated and all-underrated rosters. It is solely based on my own opinion and analysis of the standard and sabermetric statistics that were available on Baseball-Reference.com and FanGraphs.com. If you don't agree with a pick I made, please submit your lists in the comment section below, and thanks for reading.
