7. Adrian Gonzalez (Los Angeles Dodgers)
I think Gonzalez’s production will go down in 2015, but what evidence do I have to back that up? Adrian Gonzalez had a surgery a few years ago that was supposed to limit his power, and then he comes out and hits 22 homers and 27 homers back to back? He truly is an anomaly.
He has hit at least 18 home runs in each of the last nine years with at least 25 in six of those years. He racked up at least 100 RBI’s in 7 of those years (84 in 2006, 99 in 2009) He also never hit less than a .275 average. Most importantly, he played in at least 156 games each of those 9 years. So who am I to tell you that I think that Adrian will have less than 20 home runs and less than 100 RBI this year? I can’t, I fully expect this former first overall pick to continue to surprise and astonish.
