Brandon Belt VS. Adrian Gonzalez

Brandon Belt is finally starting to become the player that we all hoped for, as he is tied for 5th in the NL with 28 doubles. However, Adrian Gonzalez is Adrian Gonzalez. Gonzalez and his always smooth swagger is quietly putting together another great year, and he has been the 2015 Dodgers MVP. Belt and Gonzalez are very similar players in that they are both left handed, both have great hands at the hot corner, and both like to hit the ball to left field.

Belt–.275/.351/.490, 17 home runs, 58 RBI, 28 doubles, .998 fielding percentage, and 3.3 WAR.

Gonzalez–.291/.366/.522, 24 home runs, 73 RBI, 27 doubles, .996 fielding percentage, and 3.9 WAR.

Advantage Gonzalez.
