1) Troy Tulowitzki (Colorado Rockies)
Without a doubt, when healthy, Troy Tulowitzki is the best shortstop in baseball.
Make sure you emphasize the healthy part. Over the last five seasons, “Tulo” is averaging just under 106 games played a year, and has spent numerous time on the disabled list. Before getting hurt in 2014, Tulowitzki was having a MVP type of season, posting a slash line of .340/.432/.602 in 91 games. He hit 21 home runs in just those 91 games, one can only imagine what he could accomplish if he was healthy for a full 162 games.
With the Rockies looking to turn things around, they desperately need their franchise player to stay healthy throughout the season. If he can stay healthy, expect the 30-year-old to put up monster numbers, placing himself right in the middle of the Most Valuable Player discussion.
