Matt Chapman plays at an MVP Level all season long

So far, Chapman is hitting .522 with 13 hits and looks like he’s on pace to have an incredible season. The three-time Gold Glove Award winner and two-time Platinum Glove Award winner is showing he can get it done at the plate too. Chapman is a career .243 hitter, so it’s unlikely that he hits a super high average. Nonetheless, he’s off to a hot start in 2023 and may have his best season to date in Toronto.

Dansby Swanson Wins the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Award

Dansby is off to a red-hot start in 2023. His fielding percent is a perfect 1.000 and he’s hitting .500 with 10 hits. He’s looking good in his new Chicago Cubs uniform, and it seems Chicago made a great investment this past offseason. The Cubs have a very solid roster and have numerous veterans that have had success in the past. Dansby should be the catalyst and be able to drive in a lot of runs from the two spot in the lineup. This feat is definitely in reach for Dansby, so don’t be surprised if he pulls it off.


Luis Arráez Wins Back-to-Back Batting Titles

Arráez won the batting title in the American League last season for the Minnesota Twins, it would be awesome to see him win it in the National League for the Miami Marlins this season. He’s hitting .458 with 11 hits on the season and looks to be on pace for another incredible season in the batting average department. Luis is a career .317 hitter and deserves some more respect on his name. Arráez is just 26 years old, and I’m sure he will be among the best in the league in batting average for years to come.
