Rutschman boasts an outstanding.267 batting average with an outstanding slugging percentage of.425, making him an exceptional offensive force with 16 homers and 58 RBIs to create scoring opportunities for his team.

As soon as teams take to the field, pitching performances will be vital in dictating gameplay.
