As the MLB season winds down, Albert Pujols and Miguel Cabrera are putting the finishing touches on their historic careers. But that got us thinking: Who will be part of the next generation of stars to reach baseball’s most iconic offensive milestones when the two legendary sluggers retire?

With no clear candidates to reach 500 home runs, 3,000 hits and 2,000 RBIs next, we enlisted ESPN MLB experts Bradford Doolittle and David Schoenfield to lay out who is on pace to reach these marks.

The percentages for each player are based on Bill James’ “favorite toy” tool, which projects the likelihood of a player hitting a statistical milestone based on his career total, established recent performance and estimated number of remaining seasons. (All stats are through Wednesday’s games.)

Doolittle breaks down the most likely players to get there, while Schoenfield highlights the long shots with a chance — and both make their own predictions for the superstars who will reach baseball’s most storied round numbers next.
