Jose Bautista

For the third and final time, Jose Bautista makes this list. While his spring training stats may have been debatably better in both 2010 and 2014, Joey Bats still raked during March of 2011.

In 60 at-bats Bautista registered 24 hits, an impressive nine of which were doubles. To go along with his nine doubles, Bautista hit three homeruns and knocked home 14 RBIs and had a slash line of .400/.426/.700.

After having a breakout season in 2010, Blue Jays fans were hoping his production would continue to be that of an MVP-caliber player. Much like his spring training numbers, he did not disappoint.

Bautista went on to have debatably the best year of his career, as he was able to hit for average and power. In 513 at-bats, Bautista hit 43 homeruns while collecting 103 RBIs, all while slashing a very impressive .302/.447/.608

It can only be put one way –  Bautista is a stud. He treats every game as if it is a playoff game, and always has the fire inside him to do his part to pick up a victory. This passion for the game reflects in his spring training numbers, as he consistently puts up great numbers every March.
