20. Nomar Garciaparra
Nomar Garciaparra is a former Boston Red Sox player who was a six-time all-star player.
Often on social media pages, you will see Nomar Garciaparra's name pop up with fans asking whether, if it weren't for injuries, would the Red Sox player would have had a similar career trajectory as that of Derek Jeter.
Garciaparra edges out his rival, Derek Jeter with 43.1 in WAR compared to Jeter's 42.4. But the Boston Red Sox player suffered from barrages of injuries throughout his playing career.
Many imagined Red Sox to win their World Series title with Garciaparra at the helm, but that was not quite the case, as Red Sox won their last four titles without the support of the shortstop.
It was a shame that the talented shortstop couldn't have a single World Series to his name. In his prime, Nomar had an average of .372, which remained his best until his retirement in 2009.
Garciaparra will not get the plaque in Cooperstown but did get one with Boston Red Sox. A weakened player after his injury in 2001, Nomar only comes behind Arky Vaughan in OPS+ among the shortstops at 124.
