Troy Glaus – 2000 Silver Slugger
MLB The Show has a tendency to reflect the real life version of the sport, mostly with home run power being the sexy part of baseball. When filling out your lineup, having a third baseman that once led the league in homers for a season would make your team that much more effective. Troy Glaus fits that bill as his 23-year old season back in 2000 gave him the home run crown in the American League.
Angels: Do not forget the great season Troy Glaus had in 2000
His league leading 47 homers from that year is still the most ever hit by an Angels player in one season. Most fans remember Mike Trout’s 2019 where he hit 45 and likely would have surpassed Glaus on the teams list had he not lost most of his September to injuries.
Along with being a big power hitter, Glaus was also a former shortstop who moved to third once he turned pro, making him a solid defender for his size. This card would all around be a very nice fit in the lineup while providing the defense at third.
Whether celebrating his first All-Star appearance or his first Silver Slugger, Glaus would be a fantastic addition to The Show.
