The MLB offensive leader boards are full of excellent players, who were also there last season and in this season, they want to return to claim a place among the best sluggers of the baseball league. There are players, who had previously been in the highest ranking places, but this time, new ones will appear and they will want to get some good numbers and improve the statistics of their team for the last stretch of the season.
Some of the best candidates for the MVP Award in both leagues were not in the same conditions last season, some had some problems, but currently have been resolved. So, here we list of the 2 best sluggers to bet on.
Mookie Betts could be the winner of the American League’s Most Valuable Player award, even when his partner JD Martinez pursues a Triple crown. That is because Betts, has been a superstar of the Red Sox in every phase of each game.
He has shown his power as never before, since his numbers have risen with his percentage of slugging in 627, a record in the career of a young player who still has a long way ahead.
Christian Yelich has been characterized by hitting the ball strongly in every game. But in previous seasons, his batting was limited by his tendency to low balls. However, Yelich is now having a fairly high average of slugging compared to last season.
In his first year with the Brewers, he has established a new career record with 28 home runs, and his slugging percentage of 550 is also really good.
How we can see, Mookie Betts and Christian Yelich are being the biggest candidates to win the MVP this year, as their batting averages are a bit higher than the others, making them have almost no competition. This season, there will be a lot of home runs.
