With the Super Bowl just closing up, all eyes have turned towards baseball and the beginning of Spring Training. MLB is eager for games to get started and take away the attention from the recent Astros’ sign-stealing controversies.
Lucky enough, the game is loaded with a number of young stars. While Mike Trout has long been the undisputed best all-around player in the game, guys like Cody Bellinger and Christian Yelich have been challenging him for the title. Here are the best hitters entering the 2020 season.
Since his first call up in 2014, Mookie Betts has absolutely raked for the Boston Red Sox. His power began to show up in 2016 and since then he’s been a perennial 30-30 threat.
He was awesome in 2019, batting .295 with 29 homers, 80 RBI’s, 16 steals and an astonishing 135 runs scored. He will, however, no longer be hitting in the middle of the Sox’ lineup. Betts was recently traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers where he will team up with 2019 NL MVP Cody Bellinger.
