Mookie Betts Shines with Elite Stats in 2023 Season, Leading MLB Postseason Rankings

In his fourth season as a Dodger, Mookie Betts is setting the baseball world on fire with one of his most exceptional seasons to date. As we gear up for the 2023 postseason, Betts is poised to continue his incredible run of form.

While Betts may never surpass his AL MVP-worthy performance back in 2018, his 2023 regular season was nothing short of spectacular. He boasts a batting average of .307, an on-base percentage of .408, and a slugging percentage of .579, accompanied by an impressive 39 home runs and 107 RBIs. Notably, Betts’ remarkable prowess extends beyond the batter’s box, as his outfield and infield play have reminded fans of his elite defensive capabilities.

Given his illustrious track record, including two World Series victories—one with the Boston Red Sox and another with the Dodgers—and his consistent elite production, it comes as no surprise that writer Will Leith has chosen Mookie Betts as his top pick for the 2023 postseason.

Leith’s rankings are rooted in a comprehensive analysis of each player’s regular-season performance, historical achievements, and current health status. In his evaluation, Betts emerged as the clear frontrunner, with Ronald Acuna Jr.—Betts’ primary competition for the NL MVP title—and Corey Seager trailing closely behind.

As we eagerly await the outcome of the NL Wild Card showdown between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Milwaukee Brewers, the Dodgers are poised to discover their opponent in the upcoming divisional round. The 2023 regular season records suggest a promising outlook for the Dodgers, with an impressive 8-5 record against the Diamondbacks and an even more dominant 5-1 record against the Brewers.

“Deciding who tops this list is a slightly different question than that one. After all, Betts has been here before, winning two World Series, in addition to the fantastic year he’s had in 2023 — which has included playing all over the diamond. Betts is at his absolute peak right now, and clearly eager to get that third ring.”
