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.
