AL Most Valuable Player: Juilo Rodriguez

Julio Rodriguez came in 4th place in the 2023 AL Most Valuable Player voting, losing to Shohei Ohtani who is now with the Dodgers and out of the American League. 2023 was a really good year for Julio but there were some months where he battled with consistency and tried to do to much to carry the Mariners. Overall he had a 5.3 WAR season with and OPS of .818 and hitting 32 HR, scoring 102 runs, 103 RBI's and stealing 37 bags. Like I said Julio had a great year but it seems like he wasn't happy with it and is hungry to do better.

With the additions the Mariners made this off season Julio shouldn't have to be the guy that completely carries the team every game. Even though he will do this a lot of the time, not all the pressure is on Julio, I think he will be more relaxed at the plate and should see more consistency from him. Right now Julio is +1100 on FanDuel, which is 4th best to win the award in the American League. This is Julio's ceiling and it would not surprise me one bit if he took home the AL MVP award in 2024.
