MVP is Tier 2? Goldschmidt’s Fantasy Ranking Tier 1

He is not recognized as the best even in the season he received the MVP award and immediately greeted. It is a major league (MLB) class. 먹튀검증

MLB.com recently released the fantasy rankings. This ranking is a virtual draft ranking for fantasy game users. It is announced every year before and after the opening of spring camp. The overall ranking and ranking by position up to 300th place are displayed. 

Last season, Paul Goldschmidt (St. Louis Cardinals) of the National League (NL) was pushed to the second tier (group) in the field of first baseman with many big guns. The reason given by MLB.com is the possibility of an aging curve. Although he recorded 35 homers and 115 RBIs in the 2022 season, Goldschmidt, who is turning 35, found it difficult to show top-notch performance for two consecutive years.  

Second-tier first basemen like Goldschmidt were Pete Alonso (New York Mets) and Matt Olsen (Atlanta Braves). Alonso is the hitter with 146 home runs since the 2019 season. He has no MLB hitter who has produced more home runs than him. Excluding the 2020 season, when a mini-season (60 games per team) was held due to Corona, he hit an average of 43 homers per year. Olsen still strikes out a lot, but he has proven his durability and has been highly praised for producing a fast exit velocity of 150 km/h and a respectable barrel exit rate. 

So who is Tier 1? Ryu Hyun-jin’s teammates Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Toronto Blue Jays) and Freddie Freeman (LA Dodgers) were selected. MLB.com said of Guerrero, “It is true that he struggled in the 2022 season as the number of games with breaking balls and outsiders (based on right-handed hitters) increased. ) Even considering his second season, he recorded a batting average of 0.274, 32 homers, and 97 RBIs. Considering his future productivity, he will not be disappointed.” 

Freeman is the best contact hitter in the league. He ranked first in both hits (199) and doubles (47) in the 2022 season. MLB.com said, “(His first-tier selection) is not surprising as he has been one of MLB’s best hitters over the past 12 years.” However, he also pointed out that his home run productivity is lower than that of Guerrero.
