The Braves 25-year-old third baseman finished the season ranked 5th in all of baseball with 38 home runs while posting the 10th best OPS in all of baseball with a .878 mark. 

6. Justin Verlander

The Astros starter finished 2nd in all of baseball with 18 wins while leading the AL, led all starters with a 1.75 earned run average, and posted 185 strikeouts.

As all eyes during the 2022 MLB schedule was on Albert Pujols and Yadier Molina of the St. Louis Cardinals as they finished their final seasons of their career, another Cardinals All-Star Paul Goldschmidt put together a run for the NL Triple Crown.

Despite coming up short of the Triple Crown, Goldschmidt finished the season ranked 3rd in MLB in batting average (.317), 8th in home runs (35), 4th in runs batted in (115), and 4th in OPS (.981). His performance helped the Cardinals lock up another NL Central division title.

3. Pete Alonso

Team: New York Mets

Alonso posted a .271 batting average on the year to go along with a .352 on base percentage, 40 home runs and 131 runs batted in.

The Mets star first baseman didn’t stop there as he posted five stolen bases, picked up 67 walks, scored 95 runs, and hit 27 doubles on the year. 

2. Shohei Ohtani

Team: Los Angeles Angels

If it wasn’t for the season of Aaron Judge, the Los Angeles Angels two-way star Shohei Ohtani would be the hands down AL MVP.

Nonetheless Ohtani wowed baseball fans around the world as he continues to dominate both on the mound as a pitcher and as one of the best hitters in the game of baseball.

Ohtani ranked in the top 10 in wins (15), earned run average (2.33) and strikeouts (219) as a pitcher. Meanwhile at the plate, Ohtani finished 11th in home runs (34), 19th in runs batted in (95), and 10th in slugging percentage (.519).

1. Aaron Judge

Team: New York Yankees
