The 2022 Major League Baseball season is offering a high level as in previous seasons, despite what was the lockout, the coronavirus, and other things that were put against baseball, after all, nothing stopped the beginning of the new season.
The home run leaders are fighting like never before, everyone seems to want to be in the top 10 as most players started their home run dominance in good shape this season, plus it is expected that at least 2-3 of those who were home run leaders last 2021 season return to the top 10 again this year.
Shohei Ohtani is one of the big favorites among the home run leaders in the 2022 season, he has all the odds in his favor but in 2021, Ohtani was the 3rd best with 46 home runs, while the two best from last season were Vladimir Guerrero Jr and Salvador Perez with 48 home runs each.
