MLB Player Rankings for the Top 25 Outfielders of 2021 Season

Bleacher Report

Welcome to Bleacher Report's final positional rankings of the 2021 MLBseason!

Throughout the year, we released monthly updates to our position-by-position power rankings, selecting the top 10 players at each spot. Now it's time to finalize those rankings while expanding the list out to the 25 best at each position on the diamond, which means each position is going to get its own article.

Just like the regular-season rankings, players are ranked solely on the 2021 season. Past production and future expectations played no part in deciding the order.

To qualify for inclusion, a player had to have at least 200 plate appearances. Each player was included in the rankings at the position where he played the most innings. That notably excluded Mike Trout (146 PA).

Let's keep our 2021 MLB Player Rankings series rolling with a look at the top 25 outfielders.

 

Next 25

Since there are three times as many outfielders as there are other positions on the diamond, it made sense to tack an honorable mention list of 25 guys onto our top 25 list. Here are the players who just missed the cut, listed alphabetically:
