5 of 10

5. Miguel Cabrera, 3B, 48.7 fWAR

The only active player on the list, Miggy obviously played much more first base than third base, but he played there for both the Tigers and the Marlins. He has a significant amount of reps there. He is also easily the most significant name in Tigers history to play third base. Sorry, Brandon Inge fans.

What's there left to say about Miggy? A two-time MVP, a Triple Crown winner, 500 home runs, 3,000 hits. He is one of the best hitters of all-time.

We just had to include him on this list somewhere. There are many other players that were in the mix for the DH spot, and not enough third baseman. Miggy takes the third base spot on our all-time lineup.
