Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw takes the No. 3 spot right behind Kris Bryant (No. 1) and Anthony Rizzo (No. 2) of the Chicago Cubs. The 2016 Rookie of the Year Award winner, Corey Seager makes his debut at No. 7, just one spot ahead of rival Buster Posey of the San Francisco Giants.
Played who debuted on the 2017 list:

- Cubs left fielder Kyle Schwarber (N0. 5)
- Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez (No.9)
- Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts (No. 7)

“The list is based on sales of Majestic jerseys at MLBShop.com between the 2016 World Series and ’17 Opening Day,” said Newman.
