Now it is very early in the season, and this could be a premature take, but Giancarlo Stanton could be the Yankees’, or maybe even the American League’s MVP this year.
Of course, if he stays healthy over the course of the 60 game season.
The Yankees’ season is only three games in, but Stanton already has one less home run than he did in his injury-shortened season last year.
Not only that, but he has already hit the hardest home run of the season, and it does not look like anyone will hit a harder home run this season.

Four hundred and eighty-three feet. One hundred twenty-one point three miles per hour. Are you kidding me, Stanton? That ball was absolutely destroyed.
Yankees fans also have got to see Giancarlo Stanton hit the first home run in 2020 regular season baseball, in the first inning of 2020 regular season baseball.

A healthy Giancarlo Stanton is a monster, and he looks to be in the best shape of his life right now. After the opening series against the Washington Nationals, Stanton is slashing .444/.545/1.222 with two home runs, four runs batted in, and two walks.
Although it is over one series, these numbers are very impressive.
If Stanton is able to keep this up over sixty games, he very well could be the AL or just the Yankees’ most valuable player.
