#1. Yoenis Cespedes–OF
Practically holding the New York Mets offense on his back all the way through the NLCS, Yoenis Cespedes has been a power threat throughout his career, and this season he seemed to take his game to the next level. For some reason, despite Cespedes’s constant power numbers, he has been traded teams three times in his four season in the league. Whatever the reason, it is very likely that all three of his previous teams may have regretted the transaction.

Now with a little more wherewithal and postseason experience, Cespedes is a 2-time MLB Home run Derby Champion, made the All Star team in 2014, and finished in the top-10 in MVP voting in his rookie season. After turning the age of 30 this season, Cespedes has tallied 106 home runs in just four seasons.
Cespedes is going to come with a very high price tag, but with the Giants supposedly interested and the money to pay him, Cespedes could be making his way back to the Bay Area.
