Players to watch in the World Series

Eddie Rosario, OF, Atlanta Braves

When the Braves added Rosario at the trade deadline he looked like a complementary piece to help them weather a storm of outfield injuries. Instead, he’s been the club’s best player during its improbable playoff run. Throughout most of his career Rosario has been something of an all-or-nothing power hitter, but he’s found a more balanced approach in the playoffs, striking out just five times and leading all postseason hitters with a .474 average.

Kyle Tucker, OF, Houston Astros

Considering the Astros have participated in two of the last four World Series, their lineup is familiar to most baseball fans, but Tucker is Houston’s 2021 breakout star. The young outfielder has driven in 15 runs in 10 playoff games, and brings a potent power-speed combo to a veteran group of position players not known for their base running. There’s a good chance Tucker becomes a household name by the end of this series.

Freddie Freeman, 1B, Atlanta Braves

The 2020 National League MVP has now spent 12 seasons in Atlanta and remains the team’s most talented hitter. The Braves’ lineup centerpiece will be expected to carry a heavy offensive load in this series, and considering he’s a pending free agent it’s possible that these are his last games for the franchise he’s represented five times at the All-Star Game.

Yordan Álvarez, DH, Houston Astros

No hitter in this World Series brings more raw power to the table, and for a third-year player Álvarez is as playoff-proven as they come. The big DH hit an astounding .412/.524/.588 in the 2019 World Series, and he’s been the Astros’ best hitter in these playoffs as well. Expect at least one home run off the slugger’s bat that clears the wall by a good 50 feet.

Who’s going to win the World Series?

The Houston Astros enter the Fall Classic as strong favorites to bring home their second title in the last five seasons. Houston had the most potent offense in the majors during the regular season, and has continued to look extremely dangerous in the playoffs. On the pitching side there’s been more room for doubt, but the club’s bullpen has consistently stepped up whenever the starters have faltered, giving the lineup plenty of chances to erase any deficits. When it comes to raw talent, there aren’t many reasons to doubt the Astros.

That said, the same could’ve been said back in 2019 when Houston faced a Washington Nationals team they won 14 more games than during the regular season. The Nationals were hot at precisely the right moment, though, and that might be the case with the Atlanta Braves. The Braves already dispatched the loaded Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLCS and have kept runs off the board behind two effective trios: Charlie Morton, Max Fried, and Ian Anderson in the rotation, and Tyler Matzek, A.J. Minter, and Will Smith in the bullpen. Those six pitchers have pitched 77.8 percent of Atlanta’s innings during the playoffs with a combined 2.39 ERA. If they can hold the line against the Astros’ bats then the Braves could pull off the upset.
