Aaron Judge, Mike Trout Rank As The Most Valuable Players In Baseball
Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve won the American League MVP Award this year while posting the highest batting average in the sport and leading his team to its first World Series title in franchise history. But from an economic standpoint, baseball’s most valuable player is Aaron Judge, who finished second to Altuve in MVP voting. Judge drives the most revenue for his team according to the Revenue Above Replacement (RAR) model developed by my firm Block Six Analytics (B6A).
