Every MLB team’s most crucial player entering 2023: Rookie infielders, newly signed starters and more

The Major League Baseball regular season is getting closer, which means it’s time to get ready for the year ahead. For some, this means fine-tuning the mechanics or expanding workloads; for others, like us here at CBS Sports, it entails identifying key storylines and key players for each team.
