3. Oscar Gonzalez

Oscar Gonzalez has the fewest plate appearances and least games played of players appearing on this list. When Gonzalez has seen the field it has not been the fun type of nautical nonsense we experienced late last season. Gonzalez has just five hits in 31 at-bats with six strikeouts leading to an uninspiring .161/.161/.226 slash line. The breakout from last season featuring 11 home runs may be an outlier for Gonzalez over the course of his career, but the power surge and production in 2022 shows that there is more there than what is currently being seen.
