It’s a division more known for its pitching, but the AL Central has definitely seen some hot bats this Spring Training, much to the delight of fantasy baseball owners.

The Detroit Tigers, alone, have four projected Opening Day starters hitting above .300. Incredibly, none of them are named Miguel Cabrera although he hasn’t done badly for himself. Cabrera is hitting .280 with two home runs and five RBI in 25 at-bats this spring.

All five teams will be equally represented on this list with one honorable mention selection from the Tigers.

Now, a hot Spring Training doesn’t always lead to success in the regular season, but it certainly can’t hurt. Fantasy owners will have to hope that when the teams break camp and head north to the colder weather that those bats stay hot.

Without further ado, here are the five hottest bats in the AL Central entering the 2015 season.
