Elias Diaz, Catcher, Colorado Rockies
Diaz currently has the second best batting average in all of baseball, trailing only Luis Arraez of the Miami Marlins. He’s hitting .340 with six home runs and 26 runs batted in. He also has a .927 OPS, which is the 12th best in baseball. Diaz is 30 years old, but it’s never too late to revive your career. I can see him being a super valuable trade candidate come later this season. He could be a key piece for a team looking to make a deep playoff run.
Jorge Soler, Designated Hitter, Miami Marlins
Soler is absolutely mashing for the Marlins this season. He’s hitting .261 with 15 home runs and 32 runs batted in. He could be on his way to having a similar season that he had in 2019 with the Kansas City Royals. That year, he hit .265 with 48 home runs and 117 runs batted in. Jorge has one of the best power bats in baseball, and it will be exciting to see how his season plays out in Miami this year.
Riley Greene, Center Fielder, Detroit Tigers
Riley Greene has been terrific for Detroit this season. He’s batting .297 with five home runs and 18 runs batted in. His power numbers aren’t there yet but that will come along with more experience. After all, Greene is just 22 years old and it’s only his second Major League season. He is only going to get better and looks primed to be a great player for a long time. Detroit needs to figure out a way to hang on to him, he’ll be a great centerpiece for the franchise.
