The Top Ten First Basemen (1B) in 2022

We have accounted for defensive and offensive production since 2019, with an added emphasis on 2021. The Just Baseball Show breaks down the first basemen who will rake in 2022:

Joey Votto is one of the great leaders in baseball and still bangs. Last year he hit 36 home runs with a 140 wRC+, his highest mark since 2017.

Alonso hit 53 home runs during his rookie season in 2019 and is the two-time defending Home Run Derby champ. Call 2021 a “down year” if you want, but he hit 37 bombs and slugged .519.

5. Pete Alonso  New York Mets

The two-time Gold Glove winner  got his first All-Star nod this past year, and he ended the 2021 season with 39 home runs and 111 RBI’s to go along with a .271 batting average.
