Bryce Harper and Mike Trout are two of the game's most dominant young players. They're both great representations of what a five-tool player is.
Trout is the better player; he's actually the best in all of baseball and has been for the past few years. However, Harper is also one of the best in the game and even more than a year younger, he's not too far behind Trout.
This stat shows that in the power department, the two hitters are identical.
Age upon hitting 150th career HR— Patrick Pinak (@pinakk12) August 8, 2017
G. Stanton: 24 yrs, 290 days
B. Harper: 24 yrs, 295 days
M. Trout: 24 yrs, 295 days
Harper and Trout both notched their 150th big league home run at the same age. Not just the same year, but the same age to the exact day.
Now, Trout is 26 years old, so this homer happened almost two years ago for him. Harper crushed his shot tonight.

Make no mistake, Harper is not far behind Trout in the best player in the game discussion. From the looks of things he may be right on Trout's pace.
