3. Matt Adams

2014 Numbers: 9 HR’s, 33 RBI, .325 AVG, .337 OBP, .528 SLG

Matt Adams missed a couple weeks with an injury, and his power numbers weren’t near what they should have been at the beginning of the season, but he’s been absolutely dominant since returning from the disabled list, and he now has the fifth-best batting average of any qualifying major-leaguer and by far the best average of any National League first baseman. While it wouldn’t have been obvious that Adams was an All-Star candidate several weeks ago, it will now be a major snubbing if he’s not named to the roster this weekend.
