2. Lucas Duda, Mets
Here’s another tricky one, much like Conforto. If we’re talking sheer strength and power, Lucas Duda is second to none.
The 30-year-old first baseman stands tall and talented at 6-4, 255 pounds, so, you don’t want to pick on this guy.
Lucas’s grand-slam in the first inning of the Mets NL East-clinching win against Reds was as memorable as this sport gets; helping the Mets clinch their first postseason birth since 2006.
The issue with Duda, other than his knack for swinging at balls thrown in the dirt, is consistency. However, in the past two years, Big Luke has finally figured out how to put his massive frame to good use, even if for only a couple 10-15 game stretches across a full season.
In 2014 and 2015 combined, Duda mashed 57 home runs, most of them into the newly-name Coca Cola Corner of Citi Field (RIP Pepsi Porch). While he has tons of room for improvement, his power is unquestioned.
