Washington Nationals: Matt Adams

Coming into the 2018 MLB season,  the Washington Nationals were supposed to take the NL East by storm. With guys like Ryan Zimmerman, Bryce Harper, and Anthony Rendon in their lineup, the sky seemed to be the limit for first-year manager Dave Martinez.

However, the Nationals have been one of the more inconsistent teams in all of baseball this season, and as we head towards September, they are looking up at both the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. There is still time to win a Wild Card spot, but at this point, it looks like a miracle if that were to happen.

While all of their regular hitters have had their moments this season, one guy has really been the unsung hero of the team. Matt Adams has been the man to come in and help out through all the injuries for the Nats this season, and is very close to setting a career-high in home runs in 2018.

Coming into play on August 14, Adams already has 18 home runs, just two shy of his career-high, and is batting .267. He has proven to be a tough out during his career, and in his first season in Washington, has really come through in the clutch for the team at times.

Next. Every team's post-trade deadline grade. dark

So there you have it, the biggest unsung hero from each Major League Baseball team. Some of  these players have a very bright future, and while some may only be one-hit wonders this season, they all have made quite the name for themselves throughout the 2018 season.
