MLB: Ranking The Potential NL MVP Candidates

5. Kris Bryant

Current 2016 stats: .284, 25 HR, 65 RBI, 23 2B, 77 R

Projected: .284, 42 HR, 110 RBI, 39 2B, 130 R

Following an outstanding rookie campaign, the 24-year-old is not falling victim to the notorious sophomore slump. Possessing one of the prettier swings in baseball, his easy power plays nicely with Wrigley Field.

A major reason why the Cubs are in first place in the NL Central, he will be right in the thick of NL MVP talks barring a major unforeseen downturn in the final two months.
