Overall Ranking: 88/100

Bautista is always an unusual case. He has always been an exceptional power bat, and every year is always in contention for the Home Run leader in the MLB. He is an unbelievable talent with a great all around eye at the plate. Bautista is an average defender, but is obviously more cherished for his bat than his defense. Bautista is a great bat to have in a likely explosive lineup with the new arrivals of Josh Donaldson and Russell Martin, and with further protection in the lineup overall he should have yet another quality, and perhaps even dominant season overall. I could very well have had a player like Yoenis Cespedes here, but with the doubts regarding his position and overall his play in Detroit, Bautista was the safe pick overall and should very well solidify this pick in 2015.

Many people would actually find a way to disagree with this pick. Yasiel Puig has long been considered both an exceptional talent as well as a tad bit overrated overall. Puig is an exceptional player with phenomenal tools overall. He has a beyond strong arm, exceptional speed, and great power and a dominant bat. He will tend to struggle in making the basic play at times overall, and can be infuriating in stretches as well. Puig should and could have a great 2015 season overall, and could even establish a legitimate rise to stardom overall.

 

1. Giancarlo Stanton – Miami Marlins

There truly is not much of a question that Giancarlo Stanton is a superstar. The Kershaw MVP was all well and good, and deserving all the same. Yet Giancarlo Stanton was the sole reason a poor Marlins team was even competitive in the NL Wild Card Race. Once he went down, so did the Marlins. Stanton is an average defender, with an unbelievable bat. The amazing thing is, he is still growing and developing. Stanton is an amazing talent, and will continue to show that in 2015.
