Who do you think will have a better 2017 season? Will it be Kris Bryant or Freddie Freeman? Bryant is considered to be the frontrunner to repeat as the MVP, while Freeman is a sleeper candidate, coming off the best season of his career. We have Bryant ranked as the third player overall and Freeman as the sixth in our 2017 MLB Player Rankings.
Bryant had a big season in his second year in the majors, hitting a slash of .292/.385/.554 and leading the league in runs scored with 121, while finishing with 39 home runs and 102 RBIs. He also led the National League with a 7.7 WAR.
Freeman, on the other hand, had arguably the best season of his career, hitting .302/.400/.569 with 34 home runs, 43 doubles and 91 RBIs. He finished the season third in the National League with a 6.5 WAR.
