Your 2016 breakout players

What players do you think will finally put it all together and have a monster 2016 major league season?

I'm going with George Springer. From what I saw of him during last year's playoff games and this Spring I think if he can stay healthy for an entire season he'll put up some monster numbers and not just in the home run category.

I also think if Maikel Franco can stay healthy he'll have a spectacular season.

There seems to be a similarity among these names...something they all have in common...can't...quite....figure it...out.

But it's certainly a blowout of names.
I do think Springer is the right choice and is who I was thinking before opening the thread. The other names, well.....................

A.J. Pollock - I'd have to admit he was under my radar as a potentially star player until I saw the top 10 right now that he was in and got a better appreciation.

I'd like to see Strasburg break out, too (at least "break out" in that he has a full, healthy dominating season such that he can be considered the ace of the Nationals).

All Star or he'll basically be done
I see a trip to Louisville or Pensacola in his future. It doesn't help him much the Brandon Phillips is in his back pocket. Seems as all the players BP 'mentors' seems to hit the skids when hanging out with him.

I hope Jay Bruce gets back to his pre-2013 hitting days!

Do you think he will break out? I agree he must or his playing time is going to drop. I just have not seen anything that tells me he is moving in that direction. He is an exciting player to watch for sure, just with an OBP below .300 there is a limit to that value.

Definitely under the radar but don't you think he already broke out?

Total long shot that he figures it out.
