Break Out Season Candidates
Cameron MaybinSDIts hard to believe that Maybin is only 24 years old, since he entered the league in 2007. He has played in just 168 major league level games and has 14 HRs, 45 RBI and 19 SB, with a .246 BA. Whenever you are the centerpiece of a deal for Miguel Cabrera you will be watch with a careful eye, but its hard to deny the talent of Maybin who has a career .306 average in 5 minor league seasons. Now playing for the Padres, Maybin will look to use his super speed and stretch singles into doubles, and doubles into triples. With no Adrian Gonzalez behind him though, it will be tough to max out his run scoring potential. The Padres seem like a great place for Maybin to grow into an everyday Juan Pierre type player.
Tyler ColvinCHCThe Cubs gave the 24 year old Outfield a shot last year and he did not dissapoint. He hit 20 HRs and drove in 56 run while only appearing in 135 games, before being impaled by a broken bat along the third base line. Colvin is another bat that does not walk and strikesout to often, but he has power and is in a great lineup. You can expect 25 HRs and 75 RBI this season from Colvin.
Matt JoyceTBThe Rays lost two big bats this offseason and will look to Matt Joyce to help keep the Rays atop the AL East. Joyce has only batted .243 over 3 season but he does have 25 HR and 80 RBI in less than 600 career at bats. It is possible for Joyce to hit 20 HRs and knock in 80 runs in 2011 if he can keep himself in the lineup.
Lorenzo CainKCCain will be placed at the top of the Royals batting order and could see nearly 200 hits. A big strikeout candidate and doesn’t walk much, but still managed to hit .306 in 43 games for KC last season. Hitting in front of Billy Butler for a whole season could net him 100 runs scored as well.
Desmond JenningsTBTampa Bay was able to let go of Carl Crawford because they knew what they had in Desmond Jennings. A similar player to Carl Crawford, Jennings is a career .299 hitter in 5 minor league season. In 420 minor league games, Desmond racked up 472 hits, 92 2Bs, 23 3Bs, 29 HRs, 161 RBI, 171 SB, and 314 runs scored. He should be slotted in at the top of the Rays revamped line up batting in front of Evan Longoria, and Manny Ramirez. If Jennings can stay healthy and bat over .270 during his rookie campaign, he can easily score 100 R and swipe 50 bags.
