Major League Baseball is an American professional baseball body and the oldest of the main professional sports leagues in the United States and Canada. A total of 30 teams play in this, 15 of which in the National League and 15 in the American League. Both the leagues were separate entities initially but merged into a single organization in 2000.
The 2020 MLB was scheduled to start on March 26, 2020, with a 162-game season. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the game was postponed. Now, the game of 2021 is scheduled to start on April 1, 2021.
Below are the Major League Baseball (MLB) top 5 predictions.
Trey Mancini, who was suffering from cancer and missed last season, and Adley Rutschman together could ultimately have a great opportunity to showcase their talent for Orioles in 2021. As Alberto’s defensive numbers fell the previous year, it won’t be a surprise if the Orioles will shift him to the third base position. There are chances that Orioles will not be wanting to pay Pat Valaika the huge raise he might get in arbitration and will in turn for much cheaper Richie Martin. No one from the team has hit more than Renato Núñez’s since 2019, nonetheless, he is also predicted to get a substantial raise via arbitration, and is one of many bat-first corner kinds the team would require to find regular at-bats for in 2021.
Gary Sánchez is still predicted to be the Yankees’ starting catcher. With DJ LeMahieu presently a free agent, the following man up on the depth chart is Wade, who claims multi positional flexibility and the finest all-around speed on the roster. Taking into account several injuries of Giancarlo Stanton in the last two years, he can be used as a full-time DH. Although there are chances that Giancarlo could physically handle regular outfield duty. In the 2020 game, the Yankees did not perform as was expected from them, therefore, there are high hopes from 2021.
The objective of the Blue Jays for 2021 should be to throw more strikes and enhance their defense. Alejandro Kirk should be given an opportunity to crack the Opening Day roster. With his advanced contact tool and hopeful capability to handle high velocities, he is sure to give a good performance. Guerrero Jr.’s possible return to third base will not be possible. He sure can improve his game but still, it will come as a surprise to see him turn into a league-average defender at third. Cavan Biggio will most probably be at second base, like it was in 2020, as there will already be players on first and third base. Travis Shaw could return to Jays for 2021, but the club also has an opportunity to use Austin Martin and Jordan Groshans.
For 2021, The Tigers can get a good idea of what their team will look like as they can use the players within the organization. Jake Rogers returned to Triple-A Toledo and it does not look like that the club is ready to promote him. The tigers can sign Alex Avila with Greiner as a backup. After his knee injury, Jeimer Candelario shifted from third base to first. Now, he can either stay there or the Tiger can look for the first baseman and make Candelario go at third. Everything will depend on how Candelario’s injury heals. Niko Goodrum also suffered an injury and is also arbitration eligible, which means he can be dropped by the team. However, he can get another chance owing to his defensive value and leadership role. Willi Castro can be the best run producer at short as his performance has improved constantly.
The team needs to work on their pitching. Also, there is a need for certain new additions to the rotation. Max Stassi showed good results in the 2020 match, however, after his surgery, there are chances that he will not play in 2021. Therefore, the team could sign a catcher for a short-term deal. Jared Walsh can be the team’s primary first baseman, however, he needs to work on his game and show some more improvement. Anthony Rendon still has many years left in the team and can help a team a lot as he did in 2020.
