Baseball fans, just like their team’s scouts, are always on the search for the next big star. Knowing who the big hitters and top performers are will help you with this year’s workplace draft or it may even help you earn some cash on sports betting.
Whatever your reason for wanting to know who the up-and-coming MLB players will be in 2019, take a look at our carefully selected shortlist.
This Mets star is likely to burst onto the scene and be called upon early in an aging side. His power hitting will likely earn him a place in the middle order, and you should expect him to climb that order as this season and the years progress.
This White Sox powerhouse is also a force to be reckoned with when holding the bat. He has had an unbelievable off season and declared himself ready to step up to the mark in this MLB campaign.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
Imagine his father with a little more discipline. This young gun has already featured in the MLB and was a huge hit, even going viral. However, that will be nothing compared to what is expected from him this season.
This young man is ready and raring to go. It appears that the Yankees are still weighing up taking this talent – and may be worth a stake. Mr. Kikushi has even been prepping his English ready for the first interview. If he lands, we are sure he will make an immediate impact.
A man that can pitch at 110 miles per hour is no slouch and you should expect young Forrest to explode on the MLB 2019 season. Houston is fortunate to hold on to the young gun after many trading rumours surfaced in the recent months.
Cincinnati may have had some misfortune due to Senzel’s injury prone 2018, but now these injuries look to be behind him, there is no reason why 2019 will not be his year. It may have been delayed a year but the extra experience and mental toughness to come through these injuries may make him an even better player.
Finishing with a pitching prospect, we have to consider the year that Mitch Keller will have with the Pirates. The man joins an already formidable pitching team and adding him to the mix will earn him invaluable insights and rapid developments.
These are some of the top performers tipped for success this year. Some of them are young and fresh while others have been a volcano of skill for some time now and are ready to erupt. Who’s your money on?
