The position of shortstop may not be quite as deep as it was during the late 1990s - when Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Nomar Garciaparra, Omar Vizquel and Barry Larkin were all among the game's best overall players - but there isn't a lack of exciting talents at the position in today's game.

Didi Gregorius, who is hoping for a bounce back in his first season with the Philadelphia Phillies, didn't crack our list of the top 10 shortstops in baseball for the 2020 season. Neither did Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson, who despite poor fielding metrics is an exciting young star that hit .335 a season ago. Jorge Polanco, who is a major part of a Twins team with World Series aspirations, just missed the list. Ditto for Jonathan Villar, who is now a Miami Marlin.

So with all of these All-Star caliber talents not in the top 10, who topped them? Here's a look at the RADIO.COM Sports top 10 shortstops for the 2020 MLB season:
