MLB in 2023: The 25 Best Players

24. Austin Riley

2022 Stats: 38 HR, 93 RBI, 168 H, .273/.349/.528

The powerful righty proved the previous year wasn’t a fluke with yet another strong campaign in ’22. Riley essentially duplicated his 2021 season while providing even more pop. Riley set a career-high of 38 HR and led the entire National League with 325 total bases. Hitting in the middle of Atlanta’s stacked lineup, the Braves routinely called upon Riley to deliver in clutch situations. And, more often than not, Riley responded to the call. At just 25 years old, Riley will only continue to get better as his career progresses.
