Break Out Season Candidates
Omar InfanteFLABelieve it or not this will be Omar Infate's 10 major league season. Voted into the All-Star game last year as a utility infielder, Infante finished the season with a .321 batting average. The Marlins made a very smart move acquiring him and fantasy owners can easily expect 100 runs scored and close to 60 RBI, as he will be hitting in front of Hanley Ramirez, Gaby Sanchez and Mike Stanton.
Gordon BeckhamCWSBeckham was hit by the sophomore slump last year but batted .270 as a rookie and you can expect him to rebound to those rookie numbers this season. Even though he played 30 more games this season, he went down in almost every offensive category. He will be pushed down in the order with the addition of Adam Dunn, and he should see an increase in all of his numbers.
Neil WalkerPITIn 110 games with the Pirates last season Walker batted .296 with 12 HRs and 66 RBI. If he keeps that pace this season he could see 15 HRs and 85 RBI. Playing second base, those are GREAT numbers. At 25 years old and batting at the top of a revamped Pirates lineup, Neil Walker is sure to be near the top of the 2b list in points this season.
