9. Ian Happ 2022
Ian Happ quietly put together a heck of a season in 2022. Although it doesn't seem like he's quite realized his full potential in terms of power, Happ hit an impressive 42 doubles on the season, which was tied for 3rd in the National League. The switch-hitting outfielder was also selected for his first All-Star game and saw career numbers in games played (158), Hits (155), RBIs (72), and batting average (.271). The 28-year-old also took a big step forward on the defensive side, as he took home his first gold glove while patrolling Left Field. Before the additions of Dansby Swanson and Cody Bellinger, Happ was arguably the best player on the team and the Cubs would be smart to give him a contract extension.
