Arizona Diamondbacks: Paul Goldschmidt

As a star for the Diamondbacks through thick and thin—from their 2011 NL West title to their 98- and 93-loss seasons in 2014 and '16—Goldschmidt is one of the easiest picks in this exercise. The four-time All-Star and two-time runner up in the NL MVP voting is fifth in the majors in OPS+ (149) and WAR (30.1) since the start of the 2012 season. He's signed through next season with a club option for 2019.
