Jeremy Peña is now a household name in Houston after the Astros shortstop shined in the 2022 Fall Classic, becoming the first rookie position player to win World Series MVP.
Peña excelled for Houston in the regular season, amassing 4.5 wins above replacement as a rookie. But frankly, this pales in comparison to his postseason performance. Peña hit .345 in the playoffs with four home runs, filling the void left by Carlos Correa with ease. As Peña elevated his play on the field, his profile off it grew immensely.
