Astros 2022 Season Predictions: Awards and Standings

The Astros MVP
In my opinion, there’s no question that it will be Kyle Tucker. The 25-year-old is projected to slash an .869 OPS and .347 OBP on Baseball-Reference, but I think he can do much better. I see Tucker breaking into his own, similar to what Alex Bregman did in 2018.
As Tucker is young and fast, I also think that he will move to centerfield permanently this season, as well as become the leadoff man for the team. I tested both of these theories in MLB the Show, so I know what I am talking about.
Yordan Alvarez could also become the home run leader for certain stretches throughout the year, while he moves to left field and Michael Brantley moves to right.
