2022 MLB Rankings: 25 Best Hitters

24. Tim Anderson

2021 Stats: 17 HR, 61 RBI, 163 H, .309/.338/.469

Tim Anderson is a base-hit machine, and we’ve known that for quite some time. Critics have projected a drop-off in Anderson’s sky-high batting average that simply has never occurred. The White Sox shortstop has hit .322 over the last three years, which includes a Batting Title in his breakout ’19 campaign. Additionally, Anderson’s patience and power have steadily improved in his late 20’s. Since ’19, Anderson has been mashing at a 25-homer pace while continuing to post solid on-base figures (.349 OBP over last three seasons). Opposing pitchers must respect Anderson’s ability to put the ball in play or over the fence. That’s all you can ask for from an All-Star shortstop.
