White Sox stars Chris Sale and Jose Abreu are among the 10 best players in baseball, according to MLB Network’s annual top 100 list.

Sale, who went 12-4 with a 2.17 ERA and finished third in the American League Cy Young voting, is ranked at No. 5 on MLB Network’s list.

Abreu, who won the AL Rookie of the Year award, is ranked No. 9.

The two All-Stars were the key reason the White Sox moved swiftly to overhaul the roster this offseason, adding Melky Cabrera, David Robertson and Jeff Samardzija — who also appeared in the top 100 at No. 82.

White Sox outfielder Adam Eaton clocked in at No. 93.

Clayton Kershaw, Mike Trout, Felix Hernandez and Giancarlo Stanton owned the top spots.

Jon Lester is the highest ranked Cubs player in the top 100 at No. 43. Anthony Rizzo (No. 53) and Jake Arrieta (No. 89) also made the cut.
