2. Dee Gordon (3.4 WAR)

Last winter, the Miami Marlins acquired Dee Gordon and Dan Haren for what seemed to be a steep price. Fish fans didn’t 100% agree with the move, but Gordon has done all that he can to change the perception of that deal.

Defensively, Gordon has starred as one half of the best fielding double-play combo in the game. But his magic in 2015 has come at the plate.

2015: .329/.354/.409, 169 H, 2 HR, 35 RBI, 48 SB, 108 wRC+

Dee Gordon has been a hits machine in 2015. Despite being placed on the DL with a dislocated thumb in early July, causing him to miss the all-star game, Flash Jr. still leads MLB in hits.

In August, I wrote a piece on why I think Gordon can’t necessarily keep this type of play up, but will be better than he has in the past following 2015. So far he’s proving me wrong, and hopefully he continues to do so.
