Top 10 MLB power bats heading into 2017

Bryce Harper, Washington Nationals

It’s not a clown question to wonder if outfielder Bryce Harper can hit the ball far. He’s coming off of a regression in power season, so he could be like a box of chocolates — we may not know what we are going to get.

However, after this season he will be a free agent, which means he will be proving himself to a team that will be able to afford him, if said team even exists.

He has an impressive resume, which is partly to blame for that huge monetary value he’s requesting. Four All-Star spots and a former MVP and Rookie of the Year trophy also help.

On top of the honors, Harper led just about every hitting category in 2015. But will we get that same Harper this season? We hope.

A career .279/.382/.501 line doesn’t exactly illustrate what he can do. But at the age of 24, he has plenty of room to grow.
