5. Jose Bautista (Dominican Republic)

Little known before last season, Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Bautista led the majors in 2010 with a team-record 54 home runs. He has continued his torrid hitting in 2011, becoming the first player in the majors to reach 20 home runs, and earning American League Player of the Month honors for both April and May. (In fact, he’s won those honors for four of the last five months, dating back to July of last year.) Deservedly, he led all players in voting for today’s All-Star game.
