3. Joc Pederson (23), 17 HR

If Harper is surprise No. 1 of this young MLB season, then Joc Pederson is right on his tail.

We all knew this kid was nasty and coming fast. We all knew he had a great chance of being a star. However, only Andrew Friedman and the powers that be of the Los Angeles Dodgers thought this type of offensive productivity during his rookie campaign was actually possible.

I guess trading Matt Kemp to San Diego was the best move after all?

Pederson has already collected 17 home runs during his brief 80-game career.
