He may be one of the most polarizing players in baseball, but there's no denying what Bryce Harper accomplished on the diamond this past season.

During Monday's Players Choice Awards, it was announced that the 22-year-old slugger was voted on by his peers as the Most Outstanding Player in the National League in 2015.

In his fourth season in MLB, the Washington Nationals right fielder hit 42 home runs and drove in 99 runs, maintaining an impressive .330/.460/.649 slash line.

Harper, who is considered the frontrunner for the NL MVP award, was exceeded by Blue Jays third baseman Josh Donaldson for best overall player of the year.
