MLB home run leaders for 2014 include a familiar group of people, but Jose Abreu is putting them all to shame right now. The rookie first baseman has become the talk of baseball as he has been putting up amazing numbers for the Chicago White Sox. As April comes to an end, he sits atop the list of the best power hitters in the game. He has 10 in his first 29 games and could easily hit the 50 plateau by the end of the year.
There are some notable names that aren't even in the top 25 for homers this season and they include Adam Dunn, David Ortiz, Carlos Gonzalez, Yoenis Cespedes, and Chris Davis. Davis has even been placed on the disabled list to try to recover from a recent injury. Maybe the most notable name absent from the top 50 in home runs is Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera. Though he is playing first base to take some stress off his legs, it hasn't improved his offense this year.
Below is the list of the top six 2014 MLB home run leaders through the games on April 30.
