Throughout the opening part of the 2024 season, any highlight of Gunnar Henderson has been met with a common refrain: “There goes the future AL MVP.” We’re officially a month into the season, and so far, the MVP campaign is perfectly on track.

After putting up an extremely forgettable March/April in his rookie season, the Orioles’ star shortstop is on a mission this year to make sure he doesn’t get a reputation as a slow starter. Last year, it took Gunnar until June to hit his 10th home run and record his 20th RBI. This season, he’d topped both of those marks by April 29.
