Encarnacion or Bellinger?


Recommended Posts

The risk with Bellinger is that he's only been in the league for one season. We've seen it before where someone has a great rookie season, then falls flat the next season. 
The risk with Encarnacion is he's getting older. He's 35 now, and will likely hit a wall sooner rather than later.

Personally, I'd take my shot with Bellinger. The risk is there, but I just don't see that big of a drop off from last season. So what gives Bellinger the edge to me are the non-power hitter stats. I think both guys should be fairly even in terms of HR, RBI, SLG, etc, but I expect Bellinger to perform a bit better when it comes to AVG, OBP, runs, steals, etc.
