10. Addison Russell – Chicago Cubs (22)

After being acquired from the Oakland A’s as the main return piece in the Jeff Samardzija trade in the summer of 2014, Russell made his Cubs debut on April 21, 2015, against the Pittsburgh Pirates, going 0-for-5. Russell didn’t have incredibly eye-popping numbers in 2015, although he displayed nice power with 13 home runs, 54 RBIs, and 29 doubles. After his move from second base to his natural shortstop position his errors reduced from nine to just four, while showing his knack for the flashy plays throughout the remainder of the season.
