MLB breakout candidates: One player from all 30 teams who could make a surprise impact in 2023

Spring is in full bloom and it’s time for our favorite annual exercise: trying to figure out the best player for each team. In last year’s crop, we targeted Spencer Strider and Stephen Kwan, while past releases included Cal Quantrill, Drew Rasmussen, DJ LeMahieu and Ketel Marte, among others.

As always, we try to play this game on a high difficulty level. This means that we do not include promising players (unless we have no other choice) or established major league players (unless we expect them to improve markedly). Sorry guys, but there are hundreds of other glowing columns on the internet that will tell you that Gunnar Henderson and Corbin Carroll could be good players this season.

This is a subjective exercise, so keep that in mind as you scroll.
