MLB Team Stars, Prospects and More

I have made some categories for each baseball team. These choices are made by me and I am open to any comments or tips on these players. Here are the categories below. The 5 Player Pictures represent 5 of the players mentioned.

(RS) Rising Star(s)- A young rookie or player who has some big league experience but also has a bright future in the MLB for lots of years to come.

(UR) Underrated- A player, that in my eyes is underrated in the eyes of other fans, commentators and people.

(L) Leader(s)- A team leader that has been around the players, works well with everyone and can pump up the team when needed.

(SP) Streaky Player(s)- A player who goes on lots of streaks whether it is a hot streak or a cold slump.

(BP) Best Player(s)- The player which in my eyes is the face of the franchise, most productive and strongest player on the roster.
