2018 Stats: .346 AVG, 32 HR, 80 RBI, 30 SB
The 2018 American League batting champion could add some more hardware at the end of the season if the baseball writers pick him out of a crowded field of AL MVP candidates. The 25-year-old superstar was the catalyst in an historic season for the Red Sox. Boston set a franchise record with 108 wins in the regular season. Betts is a quintessential five-tool player who can dominate a game at the plate, in the field or on the basepaths. He is a cornerstone for the Red Sox’s powerful lineup. Betts and fellow MVP candidate JD Martinez will need to be at their best to knock off the rival Yankees in the ALDS.
