This one was pretty obvious. Stanton has delighted the baseball world with 475+ homer runs that leave stadiums. The man has world class power and will no doubt treat baseball fans with towering moonshots for years to come. At 25 years of age, he’s already had 3 seasons with 30 or more home runs. He’s also appeared in two All Star Games and has even flirted with the National League MVP trophy.
In 2015, Stanton is 2nd in the majors with 36 RBI. Stanton’s 11 home runs is 2nd in the National League. He’s got one more home run than Goldy. It appears that he’s on his way to another awe inspiring season. The Dbacks pitching staff would be smart to carefully pitch around Stanton.
