The moment spring training begins, baseball gurus, fans and everyone else, begin to speculate. On their minds is trying to see which players are going to be the best. In addition, they cannot wait to see up, and coming players get better. They include some which showed tremendous potential or that are set to have a breakout year. There are also those who are not receiving all the notoriety and respect they deserve.
Mike Trout – Los Angeles Angels – CF – Many baseball experts regard Mike as the best all-around player in baseball right now. His stats for the past few years have been impressive enough to make him one of the most exciting players in MLB.
Clayton Kershaw – Los Angeles Dodgers – LHP – Pitchers are sometimes ignored in power rankings. That’s because most focus on hitting. However, with a 2.36 ERA average, he is doing something amazing. His ERA stats are second lowest in history which is very impressive.
Mookie Betts – Boston Red Sox – RF – Three-time All-Star and two-time Silver Slugger are just some of the achievements Mr. Betts has accomplished so far. Last season he also helped the Red Sox win the WS, won a batting title and was named MVP.
Max Scherzer – Washington Nationals – RHP – Only six pitchers in the history of baseball have managed to win the Cy Young award in back to back seasons. That is what Max accomplished last year, and he is on pace to break more records.
Jose Altuve – Houston Astros – 2B – Anytime a player hits at least 200 hits in his four previous seasons, it’s something to keep an eye on. Plus, Jose has also been crowned as the AL batting champ three times as well.
