Mike Trout has been baseball's consensus best player for a long time now. That was reflected this week in the unveiling of our annual MLB Rank Top 100, which once again placed Trout at the top of the heap.
This is the sixth straight year in which Trout has topped our rankings, stretching back to when it was known as the BBTN 100. Trout began his rise in 2013, on the heels of his historic 2012 rookie season, finishing third, with Miguel Cabrera topping the list. By 2014, the throne was Trout's alone.
