15. Byung-Ho Park, 1b/dh, Twins (29)
Credentials: Last year’s Top 20 featured Korean infielder Jung Ho Kang at No. 20, as he blazed a trail for other Korean position players to follow. Park is a completely different player from Kang, who was more athletic, with defensive versatility and good power potential. Park is a DH coming off consecutive 50-homer seasons in the Korean Baseball Organization.
2016 Outlook: Signed for $12 million in the offseason on a four-year deal, Park is expected to bring more power to a Twins lineup that needs it with Joe Mauer’s declining production at first base. He doesn’t bring much defensive value, but if Park hits half as many homers as he did in his last two KBO seasons, the Twins will be happy with their investment.
