#9 Brandon Belt (B)

For the just the second time in his career, I was impressed with Belt this year. Although he showed how streaky and inconsistent he really is, he also showed how dominating he can be and did it for almost the whole season. Belt first showed his potential during a late hot streak in 2013, but then got injured early in the 2014 season before he could really begin to make an impact. This 2015 season proved to me that he can produce throughout a 162 game season (although he did miss most of September).

Belt would finish being ranked 13th in doubles and 16th in slugging percentage in the National League. Belt is another guy who I believe is due for a breakout season in 2016.

Final Statistics:

137 Games, .280/.356/.478/.834, 18 home runs, 68 RBIs, 73 runs, 33 doubles, 3.9 WAR.
