Morneau spent 11 of his 12 MLB seasons as a member of the Minnesota Twins and in those years he was force at the plate. Morneau is just two hits shy of 1500 for his career and needs just 55 RBI’s to reach 1000.

Rodriguez had a great season as the Milwaukee Brewers closer by recording 44 saves in 2014. It was the first time he recorded more than 30 saves since the 2009 season with the NY Mets. K-Rod is only one game shy of appearing in 800 games and needs just 52 saves to reach 400 in his career.

Career: G (776), S (376), K (966)

Nathan will be entering his 15th year in the majors and also looking to extend his streak of recording double-digit saves to 11 straight seasons. In that streak he recorded less than 30 saves just once (2011). Nathan looks to reach 800 games played, 400 saves and 1000 strike outs.
