    Your teams breakout of the year...

    Just wanted some input from everyone on the player you think will finally take that next big step. Doesn't have to be a superstar status, just marked improvement.

    For the Rangers, I think it is Leonys Martin. He has been a great player in the minors, Texas invested a lot in him, and this is the year they start to see it pay off.

    Scott Feldman, I think the transition to the NL will do wonders for him. Baker should benefit, too.

    Matt Harvey...

    He has ace stuff and i think he takes a huge step forward towards being a top of the rotation guy this season.

    I dont really see a breakout star on the Cardinals. I think you know what you get from each starter.

    the only person i would say would be Matt Carpenter if he gets a legit shot at 2B and can handle the position, or finds a different way to get 350-450 AB's.

    Pitching-wise, Shelby miller once he cracks the rotation

    Tough call for the Red Sox. Doubront I would say. Maybe Lavarnway I guess if Salty is traded, and I pray he is.

    I'd guess Brett Lawrie for the Blue Jays. I was kinda surprised he didn't do it last year but it's likely coming sooner or later.

    Brandon Belt. Had a great last two months of the season and should break out finally being the everyday first baseman.

    Starlin Castro is going to put up his first .800 OPS season. Something like .300/.350/.450 with 15 HRs and 35 2Bs.

    Red Sox: I'm not really sure there's a great candidate for this. Middlebrooks certainly didn't ease himself onto the scene, so I doubt he can be a "breakout" candidate. Kalish already is banged up. Maybe Doubrount? I certainly think he'll improve upon last year's numbers. Doubt he "breaks out" though.

    Pirates: Starling Marte.

    For the Orioles, I'm going with Nolan Reimold. If healthy i think he will hit at least 25 homers. If he is hurt, I'll go with Bundy then. I think he will be an ace from the get go.

    Ike Davis and Matt Harvey. Harvey is the man.

    You sir, you have won. Now that I look at it again, well played.
