Top 20 Most Marketable Major League Baseball Players Under 25

Top 20 Most Marketable Major League Baseball Players Under 25

According to a recent survey done by Street & Smith's Erik Swanson and Brian Helfrich, Washington Nationals' rookie hurler Stephen Strasburg is Baseball's most marketable player under the age of 25.

The survey was distributed to corporate brand managers, marketing and branding executives, agencies and baseball media, who were asked to list, in order, the top five most marketable players under the age of 25 in Major League Baseball. Strasburg garnered 62% of all first place votes, nearly doubling second place finisher Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays, who finished with 32% of first place votes.

Of the Top 20 vote getters, nine were 2010 MLB Rookies, which furthers the notion that this years rookie class may be the best America's Pastime has ever seen. Bryce Harper, the #1 pick in the 2010 MLB Draft, was the only player to make the Top 20 who has yet to appear in a major league game. Below are the Top 20 finishers from the study, 2010 rookies are in bold. JHEY Image
