Christian Yelich
With a .297 batting average and 148 home runs, 28-year-old Christian Yelich has earned many awards since joining both the Marlins and the Brewers, taking home the National League's Most Valuable Player Award in 2018. One of his most significant achievements came in March 2019, when he became the sixth player in baseball history to hit a home run in each of the team's first four games. This year, he has extended his contract with the Brewers and continues to show his strength on the field.
Mike Trout
Nicknamed the "Millville Meteor" and part of the Los Angeles Angels, 29-year-old Trout is known as an eight-time MLB All-Star. His AVG sits at .305 for his career, and .296 in 2020. In 2019, he was signed the 2nd richest contract in the history of North American sports, a whopping $426 million with the Angels, just behind Patrick Mahomes $503 million.
According to Awesemo's DraftKings and FanDuel DFS cheat sheet, Trout sat in the medium tier (5.9k/17.13) for OF alongside Ronald Acuna and Marcell Onzuna on Sept 15th. Due to his many successes, he is quickly becoming one of the greatest baseball players in history.
Nolan Arenado
Part of the Colorado Rockies, with a total of 235 home runs, Nolan Arenado is known as a five-time MLB All-Star and has taken home a variety of awards since joining in 2013. Back in 2016, he was the youngest player to reach 100 home runs and has so far shown no signs of slowing down. Just like Trout and Yelich, he has extended his contract and has remained confident during the 2020 games.
Francisco Lindor
Part of the Cleveland Indians, Francisco Lindor has shown great successes since joining in 2015 and continues to show his skills with a batting average of .287 as of this year. The 26-year-old is the youngest on our list but has still hit 137 home runs in his five years. It will be very interesting to see how he plays in the next few.
Mookie Betts
Coming up close behind Mike Trout, Mookie Bets is another incredibly talented player, with a batting average of .301. He recently switched from the Boston Red Sox to The Los Angeles Dodgers as of February 2020, signing a $365 million contract (the third richest in North American history), right behind Trout. Taking home an AL MVP and various other awards, he certainly is one to watch out for.
And that's it! These were some of the most famous MLB players in 2020. By taking into consideration all of the above, it will certainly be interesting to see how the year plays out. What do you think? Would you add anyone to this list?
