So far this season, Goldschmidt, Lamb and Owings have received all the attention, but David Peralta is putting together a great campaign at the plate.

After missing plenty of last season with injuries, Peralta is slashing .314/.362/.471 with an .834 OPS. When he is not injured, the right fielder has been one of the most underrated offensive players in baseball.

Among major league right fielders, only Aaron Judge and Bryce Harper have a higher average. That is some pretty hefty company.
