Tigers' Miguel Cabrera leads in Box-Toppers points; Indians' Masterson, Cards' Miller, D-Backs' Goldschmidt among leaders

Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers leads all players in Box-Toppers points so far in the 2013 season.

The Detroit third baseman has 10.7 points. 

Indians pitcher Justin Masterson also has 10.7 points, but Cabrera beats him in a tie-breaker because he has more points in the 2012 and 2013 seasons combined. Masterson ranks second among all players and first among American League pitchers.

Pitcher Shelby Miller of the Cardinals leads among all National League players with 9.7 points. He is ranked fourth among all players.

First baseman Paul Goldschmidt of the Diamondbacks leads among NL batters with 8.7 points. He ranked eighth among all players at the end of Thursday, June 6's games (when the standings were tabulated), but was passed Friday by a teammate, pitcher Patrick Corbin (who moved from 10th to fifth place). Goldschmidt now ranks ninth overall (see updated standings on the home page).

Individual player standings for the 2013 season were last posted on Box-Toppers two weeks ago. Cabrera also led all players then, but lost the lead to Masterson on May 29, before regaining the lead on June 1.

Previous leader among NL batters, Bryce Harper of the Nationals, has fallen to third place among NL batters. He has 5.9 Box-Toppers points. Goldschmidt and Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies (6.5 Box-Toppers points) have both passed him over the previous two weeks.

What are those numbers after players' names?
