Presenting the Top 5 MVP Candidates in the American League in 2024

Like any other previous season, the 2023 also gifted a few worth cheering moments. While the performance of the two-way phenom Shohei Ohtani and the young sensation Ronald Acuna Jr. will leave a mark on their fans’ hearts, a question will arise hand-in-hand: who will be the upcoming season’s AL MVP? With tough competition around, let’s have a glimpse of the athletes with probabilities.

Julio Rodriguez

The 23-year-old Rodriguez has proven his caliber in the 2023 season and has emerged as an aspiring candidate for the MVP title. Though he posted a .721 OPS in the first half and .941 OPS in the second one, in terms of defence and base run, he can definitely surpass now Yankees' Juan Soto. 

Juan Soto

The Dominican ace Juan Soto’s impact on the ground is immeasurable as he let his team, Nationals, win their first World Series championships at merely 21 years of age. Later on, in 2022, he won the Home Run Derby, demonstrating his excellence. Now, as he joined the forces of the Bombers, he became another iconic candidate for the MVP award.

Corey Seager

Corey Seager has been a powerhouse with his 42 doubles along with 33 home runs in merely 119 games in the last season. Though his injury left a significant scar on his career, he never failed to showcase his charisma as he posted .327/.390/.623 slash line. Thus, hopefully, his improved scoreline with no injury will allow him to bag the AL MVP award in the upcoming season.

Aaron Judge

The previous season was cursed with injury for the Pinstripes' captain, Aaron Judge, also. In 2021, despite losing two months to a toe injury, Judge led his team with his homers record along with wRC+ and fWAR. However, as he is bouncing back with his overwhelming enthusiasm in the coming season, he will undoubtedly become one of the most deserving candidates for the MVP title.

Adley Rutschman

Though Adley Rutschman and his teammate Gunnar Henderson are both equally deserving candidates for the honor, considering Rutchman’s contribution on both sides of the ball, he can easily be placed ahead of his teammate.
