Fantasy Baseball 2013: AL-Only Top 12 Hitters

Ezra Shaw

Ray Guilfoyle ranks his Top 12 hitters for AL-only leagues in 2013.

Yesterday, I ranked my Top 12 NL-Only hitters for 2013, so it only makes sense that today I publish my AL-only Top 12 hitters. I have to say that the NL-only Top 12 was a much easier list to put together. I had a little difficulty picking hitters 10-12, but there were at least 4-5 hitters I considered as my 11th and 12th hitters. With the AL-only Top 12, I started having trouble around pick 8.

Let's take a look at my Top 12 AL-only hitters for 2013:

1. Miguel Cabrera, DET

2. Mike Trout, LAA

3. Robinson Cano, NYY

4. Prince Fielder, DET

5. Josh Hamilton, LAA

6. Albert Pujols, LAA

7. Adam Jones, BAL

8. Yoenis Cespedes, OAK

9. Adrian Beltre, TEX

10.Evan Longoria, TB

11. Jose Reyes, TOR

11a. Edwin Encarnacion, TOR

12. Dustin Pedroia, BOS

On the bubble: Curtis Granderson, Ian Kinsler, Desmond Jennings, Jose Bautista

UPDATE: I whiffed on not including Evan Longoria, and have relented, and added Jose Bautista to the on the bubble group, despite my concerns about his wrist. That is well documented in the comments.

Who did I miss? Who was ranked too high? Who was ranked too low? Let's discuss.
