List Rules The person you think is the next great big league player

Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

With all of the bright young talent in baseball today, it's easy to ask who is the best player under 25? Fortunately for baseball fans, there's an abundance of young talent that's emerged in recent years. Those players - both as highly touted prospects and surprise successes - have emerged to become the faces of both their respective teams and Major League Baseball. 

So, that said, who is the best young player in Major League Baseball today? Any list has to include Mike Trout, who has taken home an MVP award, Bryce Harper, who is tearing the cover off the baseball and Yasiel Puig. 2015 alone features a phenomenal rookie class, including Joc Pederson and Kris Bryant putting up big numbers for the Dodgers and Cubs respectively. But only one can be named the best Under-25 baseball player.

It's up to you decide which of these great talents is baseball's next great superstar. There are plenty of great options on this list, so you really can't go wrong.
