6. Mike Trout
Current 2016 stats: .317, 19 HR, 62 RBI, 17 SB
Projected: .317, 32 HR, 105 RBI, 29 SB
The 2014 AL MVP is having a tremendous season, yet some may think of it as an afterthought. On a subpar Angels team, the 24-year-old superstar is being largely overshadowed by some of the breakout performers of 2016.
With that said, he is a formidable and irrefutable candidate if he was to be given the award. His gold glove and quick, beautiful, powerful stroke makes him one of the more admired players in the game today.
