2016: A past-his-prime Hanley perked up with a vintage season in his role as the Red Sox’s primary first baseman and occasional DH. His OPS spiked 149 points and he set a new career mark with 111 RBIs. He even succeeded on 9 of 12 stolen-base attempts. The man has always known how to fill up a box score.

Forecast: Ramirez lives in the high-rent neighborhood, batting in the five-hole for an offensive juggernaut in a hitter-friendly home yard. He can still play, clearly. But can he stay healthy for another full season? It’s been the central question with Ramirez each year since 2011.
