Youngsters Making An Impact In 2016; American League West
With spring training around the corner, we’re taking a look at a couple of young players for each team that I think will have a larger impact in 2016. We started with the American League East on Tuesday, moved to the AL Central yesterday and will continue to move through division by division. Today we look at AL West…
Carlos Correa, SS – What Correa was able to accomplish as a 20-year old in 99 games last season was simply amazing. The Rookie of the Year hit .279 with 22 doubles, 22 home runs, 68 RBI, 14 steals, and a .857 OPS in that time frame. It will be interesting to see how the league adjusts to Correa (78 k’s in 432 PA) and vice versa, how Correa adjusts to the league. My monies on a full season of Correa with a prediction of Carlos cracking the top 10 for MVP voting in 2016.
