Let's get hypothetical. If we were to put all the players in Major League Baseball who wear the same number and put them onto one team, number 27 would easily be the best team of them all and it's not even close. Number 27 features the likes of Jose Altuve, Mike Trout, Giancarlo Stanton and others.

Here are a few stats to show how good of a team number 27 would be:

  • 34 all-star game appearances
  • 20 Silver Slugger awards
  • 6 Gold Glove awards
  • 5 MVP awards

That's how good of a team number 27 would be. Here are all the players across the league that wear number 27 and how they have done in their careers. The order of this list goes in the batting order this team would have, the rotation, the bench and the bullpen.


Adalberto Mondesi- DH

Mondesi actually made his major league debut during the 2015 World Series and didn't appear in a regular-season game until the following season. From 2016-2019, he slashed .249/.282/.415 with 89 SB and has been successful on 84 percent of stolen base attempts. He has a career fielding percentage of .978 percent playing on both sides of second and has a World Series ring when the Royals won in 2015.

Jose Altuve- 2B

Altuve, who stands at 5'6, was once told by a scout at a tryout to go home because he was too small but Altuve came back the next day and was signed for $15,000. The rest is history. In his career, he's slashed .315/.364/.463 with 1568 hits and 254 stolen bases for a success rate of 77.4 percent. He is a six-time all-star, five-time Silver Slugger recipient, won the Gold Glove award in 2018 and 2017 saw him win a World Series ring and the AL MVP.
