This one might have been the easiest one to choose. George Springer is one of the most talented young players in the game right now, and he will continue to be a star for many years down the road.

He hasn't hit for as much power this year as he did in 2014, but his .259 batting average is nearly 30 points higher than last year's mark. His power will eventually come, and if he can put it all together, he will be one of the most feared hitters in all of baseball.

His wRC+ of 127, per FanGraphs, shows that he is creating runs at a much higher rate than the average player—the league average wRC+ is 100. He has batted leadoff for much of this season, but once the host of talented youngsters cracks the big league roster, Springer will likely get comfortable in the middle of the order.

Once 2020 rolls around, he will be one of the veterans on the club and should be able to provide a valuable clubhouse presence that will bring out the best in the rest of the roster.
