José Bautista – 54
Few players have broken past the 50 home run mark since 2010. Baseball became a more pitcher-friendly game over the past few years. In 2010, Bautista hit 54 homers during his time with the Blue Jays. This was one of the best seasons of his career and he won a bunch of accolades.
Unsurprisingly he won the Silver Slugger award and broke multiple franchise records. Bautista showed that he was one of MLB’s best sluggers as he led the league in home runs for three consecutive seasons. Furthermore, he earned the first of his six All-Star appearances after his improvement (via Deadspin).
