2. Giancarlo Stanton
Giancarlo Stanton is known as one of the most lethal and powerful hitters in all of baseball. Giancarlo is known for his towering home runs that could practically fly to the moon. I mean, he was not the Home Run derby champ for nothing.
One thing that seems common with a lot of great players these days is their defense. It is not very often you see a great catch or throw unless you are watching Sportscenter’s top 10 plays, or Baseball Tonight’s Web Gems.
Defense is something that Stanton does very well. Not only does he have a rocket launcher attached to his arm, but he also makes great plays in the field. He is 2nd in MLB in putouts with 236 and .985 fielding percentage and 4 assists. With a rocket for an arm, Stanton is someone that you better not try to move up on, as he ranks seventh in all of baseball with 2.3 UZR.
So next time you see Giancarlo on the television, pay attention to everything he does, not just the towering home runs. He makes some of the most best throws that you will ever see. If you ever try to sneak one on him, you will dearly pay the price.
