For all of 2018, Rendon maintained his status as a top-tier talent in major league baseball, leading the National League in hits (44), doubles (12), home runs (24), and RBI (92).
The following year, he enjoyed his best season ever. Because of his stellar record prior to that, it’s astounding to see him make the All-Star team for the first time that year.
The NL’s best hitter had 126 RBIs to go along with his 24 doubles, and he led the league in both categories. There were also 117 runs scored and 34 home runs, good for a batting average of .319 throughout his career.
Second consecutive Silver Slugger Award and third place in MVP voting for him.
It seemed like the Nationals were all but out of the playoff picture by mid-May, but they turned things around and won the World Series in seven games over the Houston Astros.
They relied on Rendon, who hit over .400 in the Division Series and the NLCS, as well as 3 doubles, a pair of home runs, and 8 RBIs in the World Series, to propel them to victory.
Both Rendon and World Series MVP Stephen Strasburg became free agents after the series.
Even though the Nationals wanted to keep both players, they knew they could only afford to keep one of them, and when they signed Strasburg to a massive contract on December 9th, it was obvious that Rendon would not be returning.
After signing Stephen Strasburg, Zack Wheeler and Gerrit Cole, the Los Angeles Angels were said to be close to signing Rendon to a seven-year, $245 million deal.
