- Shohei Ohtani
The number one player in baseball of last year would be Shohei Ohtani. He currently plays for the Los Angeles Angels. His position is a pitcher and made his debut to the MLB in 2018. He is not just a great pitcher, he also has great hitting. In 2021 he had 46 homeruns and also struck out 156 players. It will be interesting to see how great he can do in the upcoming season.
2. Juan Soto
This player plays for the MLB National League for the Washington Nationals. Soto is known for his outstanding hitting and has a great on base percentage of .465. It is hard to for pitchers to get an out when he comes to the plate. He had a total of 29 homeruns in the 2021 season and also joined the MLB in 2018.
3. Vladimir Guerrero Jr
He is first baseman for the Toronto Blue Jays. He made his debut to the MLB in 2019. He is an amazing hitter and hit 48 homeruns. He is great with hitting fast balls that are going at a speed of 95 mph. He hit 274 balls going above that speed and lead the American League in on base percentage. He has really made a great impression for only being in the MLB for two years.
Looking at 2022
It will be interesting to see how these players preform in the 2022 season. These players all had an impressive season in 2021, and I wonder if they can preform even better in the upcoming season. If the lockout situation gets figured out, it will be fun to follow along with these players this season and their outstanding stats.
