Season Stats: .338/.408/.538 (160 OPS+), 12 HR, 47 RBIs, 4.4 WAR

Even with players like Mike Trout and Bryce Harper on the All-Star ballot, Altuve might be the easiest annual vote of any player in the big leagues despite playing the same position as Robinson Cano. Like Perez, Altuve will appear in his fifth consecutive All-Star Game. Unlike Perez, Altuve will make a serious run at AL MVP honors if Yankees rightfielder Aaron Judge ever cools off. Altuve is already at 4.4 WAR in 2017, a full two wins above the next second baseman (Oakland’s Jed Lowrie), and leads all AL second basemen in batting average and OPS (.946), as well as the AL in hits (110).
