Colorado Rockies: Nolan Arenado

Now in his sixth season, Arenado has been an impact player since he arrived in Denver for the 2013 season. Sure, Coors Field has helped Arenado lead the NL in homers, total bases and RBIs in each of the past two seasons, but the altitude has nothing to do with his prowess at the hot corner. His quick reflexes, instincts and arm strength have made him a four-time Gold Glove winner and a must-see defender, and he’s been a big part of the Rockies’ return to relevance in the NL West early this season.
