Dodgers News: Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, Clayton Kershaw Among Top 20 Jersey Sellers

MLB released their list of the top selling jerseys across the majors ahead of Tuesday’s All Star Game, and a trio of Los Angeles Dodgers stars made the list.

Right fielder Mookie Betts, first baseman Freddie Freeman, and starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw saw their names make an appearance, and none of them are a surprise considering the great seasons each have had.

Betts, who cracked the top 10 at No. 6, has shown his versatility this year playing his usual right field while also showing off his glove at shortstop and second base this season. He’s on an unbelievable tear as the season reaches its break, hitting .365 with nine home runs, 19 RBI, and a 1.038 slugging percentage over his last 15 games.

Freeman, clocking in at No. 16, has been one of the most dependable first basemen in MLB this year, hitting .320 with 17 home runs and 61 RBI this season. That batting average puts him fourth in the National League at the All Star break, and he’s certainly a player the Dodgers want up in a big spot.

For Kershaw, No. 20 on the list, he’s shown that he’s still very much one of the best pitchers in MLB in his age-35 season, leading the NL with a 2.25 ERA at the break while also boasting a 10-4 record and a usual tight slider to go along with that. Unfortunately for the future Hall of Famer though, he won’t be pitching in the All Star Game after recently hitting the injured list due to shoulder soreness.

Each member of the Dodger trio earned an All Star selection, an honor that’s well deserved for all of them. And now to go along with that, each are among the most well represented players in the game as far as fans’ money is concerned as well.
