90. . 3B/2B. Washington Nationals. Anthony Rendon. 1. player

There is no doubt that Anthony Rendon is one of the best hitters in Major League Baseball. He was once again one of the best players in all of baseball in 2019 and he capped it off by becoming a World Series Champion for the first time in his career. He had a WAR of 6.3 and put up monster offensive numbers. He hit 34 home runs and had a Major League-leading 126 RBIs. The power numbers were huge and he also slashed .319/.412/.598.

At 29 years old, he still has a lot of really good years left to play Major League Baseball. He has the skills and leadership experiences to help out a young team. He would be a perfect fit for the Chicago White Sox. They might need to use him at second base because they already have Yoan Moncada at third base but there is no doubt that his big bat would be amazing in the middle of the White Sox lineup. He is also old enough to help these young players learn how to win.

This offseason is big for the White Sox and Rendon is one of the biggest names out there. He is a game-breaker and has a chance to be in the MVP conversation for at least the next few years. A guy like this is going to be highly touted this winter and if Washington doesn’t get him to resign then there is no reason the White Sox couldn’t offer him a lot of money.
