Break Out Season Candidates
Danny ValenciaMINThe 26 year old just destroys lefty pitching hitting .374 last year in his first big league appearance. He is not a power hitting third baseman, but will have unlimited RBI opportunities with Denard Span, Delmon Young, Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, and Michael Cuddyer batting in front of him.
Chris JohnsonHOUAnother 26 year old entering his first full season as a pro ball player, Johnson is a free swinger who rarely walks and strikes out a ton. But even with that being said he still batted .308 last season in 94 games while driving in 52 runs. He will sit between 15-20 HRs while driving in runs with doubles and singles. He will be slotted in behind Hunter Pence and Carlos Lee so the RBIs will be there.
Pedro AlvarezPITThe 23 year old future of the Pirates displayed his power last year crushing 16 HRs in 95 games. At that pace he was due for 27 HRs, so you can expect 25-30 HRs and at least 100 RBI. Think Aramis Ramirez.
Brent MorelCWSA great doubles hitter and a career .305 average in the minors, Morel can beat Mark Teahen for the starting 3b job and will take full advantage if given the chance. He will turn 24 right after the season begins and the White Sox may have found their thrid baseman for years to come.
