25. Logan Morrison

Logan Morrison, 2B, Miami Marlins – Logan Morrison played ten years and accumulated just a 4.4 rWAR in the big leagues. He is currently a non-roster invitee in camp with the Milwaukee Brewers. Prior to the 2017 season, Morrison was averaging just 12 homers per season through his first seven years. In 2017 at age 29 he crushed 38 homers with a .353 on base percentage and 85 RBI. He earned 3.4 of his career 4.4 rWAR in that one season. Since that year he has slashed .187/.275/.371.

24. Tim Beckham

Tim Beckham, SS, Tampa Bay Rays – The former first overall draft pick has posted 5.5 rWAR in his six seasons. Beckham has showed decent pop for a shortstop with a career slugging percentage at .431, but he was on his way to a career year last season before being popped for a PED violation.

23. Christian Friedrich

Christian Friedrich, LHP, Colorado Rockies – Christian Friedrich was taken in the first round of the 2008 draft by the Rockies and is currently signed to a minor league contract with the White Sox. He has a career record of 10-28 with a 5.37 ERA in 296.2 innings. He hasn’t pitched in a major league game since 2016. He has a -0.6 career rWAR.

22. Starlin Castro

Starlin Castro, SS, Chicago Cubs – Starlin Castro is a four-time All-Star, three with the Cubs and one with the Yankees. He has a career OPS+ of 98. From this list, he would go on to play in 125 games during the 2010 season, hitting a cool .300 with 31 doubles and 10 stolen bases. The following season he led the National League in hits with 207. He posted 91 runs, 36 doubles, nine triples, 10 homers, and 22 stolen bases. He hit .307 with a .341 on-base percentage. He looked like a star at just 21-years-old. Despite entering his 11th season in 2020, he’s still only 29 (turning 30 in March). His 18.1 rWAR is good for the 13th most of 2010’s Top 50 Prospects. He’s been a very solid major leaguer and hopes to continue that this season with the Washington Nationals.
