Welcome back to part two of my “Players who are likely to break out in 2019” series. For this article, I will be giving one player for each team that I think will have a breakout season. The list will go in alphabetical order so that it’s easier to find your team. Also, if I mentioned someone in part one, they will not be mentioned again in part two.
For years the Astros were the punching bag of the MLB. Then the farm system graduated up to the majors. George Springer, Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, and many others helped the Astros become one of the best teams in baseball, and 2017 World Series champions. They made trades to bring in players that would leave most team’s farm systems depleted……not the Astros. Here is a look at the five best players in the Astros system that will help them win games and championships for years.
As of writing this, Bryce Harper has yet to make a decision or announce where he will be playing baseball this year. The latest news on the rumor mill has the Nationals out of contention for his services. If you personally know the writer of this article, then you know what kind of luck he has. It’s a pretty good bet that right after this releases Harper will announce his decision and any assumptions made or references to Harper will be null and void. Planning accordingly, there will be no other mentions of Harper beyond this point. Instead, we will only be looking at his potential future teammates, replacements, or counterparts.
