Top players: Darvish, Buchholz lead 2013 season list

Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish leads all players in Box-Toppers points about a month into the 2013 season.

Darvish, who earned 2.0 Box-Toppers points each of the three times he was named Player of the Day, has 6.0 points for the season.

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz ranks second with 5.4 points.

Pitcher Matt Harvey of the Mets leads among all National League players with 5.0 points.

Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers leads among American League batters with 4.2 points.  Bryce Harper of the Nationals leads among NL batters with 3.2 points.

Individual player standings were last posted on Box-Toppers on April 12, when Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw led all players with 3.0 points. Kershaw, who still has 3.0 points, has slipped to eighth place among NL pitchers.

What are those numbers after players' names?
