These players are all freakishly athletic. They have it all, they can run, hit, field and throw all with great strength. Some players have a skill set above the rest. These players all have great all around skills. Lets see who tops the list.
Who Is the Most Athletic Player In the MLB Right now?
Jose Bautista, Toronto Blue Jays - Over the last couple of seasons, Bautista has been up there with the best overall players in baseball. When at his best, he hits close to .300 but usually tends to hit in the .250 range. He has fantastic power that gives him the ability to hit monstrous home runs game after game, slugging 27 in just 92 games last season.
Miguel Cabrera, Detroit Tigers - Now to the good stuff. Cabrera is the best offensive player in baseball and although it’s somewhat close, it really isn’t. A player doesn’t win the Triple Crown based on luck; he wins it with skill.
Ryan Braun, Milwaukee Brewers - One could easily make the case that Ryan Braun is the best player in baseball. He's a real five tool player.
Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels - Mike Trout is our second-best example of a five-tool player. He may be entering just his second year with the Los Angeles Angels, but he made quite the impression during his 2012 rookie campaign where he finished second in the American League MVP Award voting.
Robinson Cano, New York Yankees - The best overall second baseman, Robinson Cano comes into our list as the third-most athletic baseball player. Entering the last year of his contract, Cano is the best player the New York Yankees have and is also one of the biggest stars in the game.
Andrew McCutchen, Pittsburgh Pirates - Andrew McCutchen might not be the best fielder in the world, but he is still one of the most athletic baseball players currently in spring training. The Pittsburgh Pirates are trying to build a championship-worthy club around him, and for good reason.
Giancarlo Stanton, Miami Marlins - Stanton is a miraculous fielder with a cannon for an arm. Ask any runner who has ever tested him, trying to tag up from third base. It just isn’t going to happen. He makes tough plays in the outfield look easy and is an underrated defender.
