3. Al Kaline, RF, 88.9 fWAR

What would an all-time Tigers lineup be without Mr. Tiger himself? Kaline is second all-time in franchise history in WAR behind Cobb.

Kaline spent his entire 22-year career with the Tigers, making the All-Star team 15 times and finished as the AL MVP runner-up twice. His defense often goes under the radar. He had one of the best arms in right field ever.

We could talk all day about Al Kaline, but if you're here, you know all about him. We have seven more players to talk about here. Moving on.
