Washington Nationals slugger, MVP candidate Juan Soto doing better to protect his awards

Soto is a World Series champion, a 2021 All-Star, an NL batting champion and winner of the 2020 Silver Slugger Award, given annually to the best hitter at each position. After his 2021 season, Soto, who hit .313 with 29 home runs and 95 RBI, is a solid MVP candidate.
