Team: Cleveland Indians
Position: Shortstop
Cabrera authored one of the most badass plays of the 2011 season, but the highlight of his '11 campaign was his offensive breakout. In 667 plate appearances in 2011 Cabrera hit more home runs (25) than he had in his previous 1610 career trips to the plate (18). In 2012 he's continued his power surge, posting a .803 OPS for the in-the-hunt Indians.
