MLB’s 25 Best Hitters in 2021

24. Charlie Blackmon — Colorado Rockies

Remember when Charlie Blackmon hit .500 for the first 17 games of the 2020 season? Sure, the Rockies’ eccentric right fielder slowed down considerably over the course of the rest of the season, but we know what Blackmon can do over a full season.

His ’17 campaign was one of the best seasons for a leadoff hitter in recent memory. Blackmon led the league in runs, hits, triples and batting average. Blackmon has remained steady since, and is a career .304 hitter entering his age 35 season.
