Power Bats In Baseball
Gone are the days in which multiple players in baseball hit 60 or more home runs in a season. In fact, only one player even reached 40 home runs last year, and he now plays in one of the most spacious ballparks in the game. With that being said, people in fantasy baseball are always looking for some power to add to their lineup. Here are the 3 best pure power hitters in the game going into the 2015 season.
After putting together one of the best seasons in his career, Nelson Cruz decided to take a chance in free agency by signing with the Seattle Mariners.
People in fantasy baseball might not like it all that much, as they recently saw Robinson Cano struggle to hit home runs with that club. Cruz cruised to the home run title in 2014, but this year might not be as easy. He still has power that is hard for others to live up to.
At the rate Stanton was playing, he could have easily reached 40 home runs if not for an injury late in the year in 2014. Not only that, but he could have been a serious contender for the National League MVP award. He is hoping to be the leader for the Miami Marlins for years to come. His ability to now hit for average also makes him one of the most valuable individuals in fantasy baseball.
Unlike the other 2 mentioned, Carter is not nearly as well-rounded.
He only hit .227 last year, but there is no denying that the 28-year-old has as much power as anyone. He was able to hit 37 home runs last year despite only getting around 500 at-bats. As long as he gets to play consistently for Houston, he has a chance to be pretty good.
