5 tools players

I’m wondering is players care about having 5 tools players in their lineups.

There aren’t too many....Mantle, Mays, Tatis, Wagner if prestiged, Griffey, Trout, Walker prestiged, Mondesi 98 ( but only against leftys), may be missing a couple...

I guess it depends. The only must have tool for me is the bat, wether that be a glitchy swing or just actual attributes. As long as they bat good it works.

Then it just depends on the mix of the rest. I’d rather have a good arm and okay defense and speed(yordan Alvarez) than great speed and no arm but defense(ellesbury).

For the Royals in real life, if Adalberto Mondesi's bat takes off in a full season, he could be the strongest 5-tool player in the game. Not many players are stealing bases these days, even if they have speed. Ronald Acuna is probably the most established power and speed player in MLB, but I'm not sure how his defense is thought of. Andrew McCutchen's 97 card is probably a pretty good option for those looking at 5-tool players. If Trea Turner develops near-elite power, he could be a pretty good 5-tool player. But I think the player with the greatest potential to be a real throwback as far as 5-tool potential is concerned is Luis Robert, but that depends how often he steals bases as he progresses. His 99 card is fun to play with.
