Players Included

Top Players in Lineup 2:

  • Shohei Ohtani - 27 year old Shohei Ohtani has played for the Angels for four years now and has quickly become a face of the franchise. Ohtani was the 2018 Rookie of the Year, a 2021 AL MVP and also earned himself a Silver Slugger in 2021 as the Angels designated hitter.
  • Trea Turner - After the All-Star break last year, Trea Turner molded himself perfectly into the Dodgers lineup after seven seasons as a Washington National. He’s an offensive weapon with 104 career home runs and 344 RBIs, and 21 stolen bags just in the 2021 season. There’s no dropoff to his skill set when it comes to how he plays second base either.
  • Max Scherzer - A 14-season vet, Mad Max has become one of the best pitchers in the game. A two-time All-Star and three-time Cy Young winner he has made his mark on every team he’s played for. Scherzer has almost 100 more wins than losses and a career ERA of 3.15. In his first season in Queens, he’s already added 23 Ks in 3 games to his overall 3,043.
  • Xander Bogaerts - Coming from the happy island of Aruba, Xander Bogaerts has been in Boston for the past nine seasons. He’s a cornerstone player for the Red Sox, an All-Star shortstop. Bogaerts has a career total of 142 home runs and 615 RBIs. He was deemed the heart and soul of the Sox’ locker room, bringing good vibes and positivity to the team, especially in the midst of their Covid outbreak. When Bogaerts came back after being on the Covid IL he flourished as their offensive anchor hitting three home runs in 20 games.
  • Jose Altuve - A lifer in Houston so far in his career, Jose Altuve has quite the trophy case. He is a 2019 ALCS MVP, 2017 AL MVP and Hank Aaron award winner, 2015 Gold Glove and 5-time Silver Slugger. Considered the number two second baseman in the league, Altuve has three years left on his contract before he enters free agency. On top of being an elite defensive player, he is moving in the range of 170 career home runs and 650 RBI.
