Travis Snider Picked as a Breakout Candidate
Baseball Prospectus released a list of nine breakout candidates, with each writer picking one player to have a breakout season in the majors in 2013 (h/t Rumbunter). One of the breakout candidates was Travis Snider, who looks to be the favorite to win the starting right field job.
Hudson Belinsky picked Snider as his breakout player, noting that the outfielder “could have a very strong year ahead of him in 2013″. Belinsky noted that the physical ability is there for Snider, and that he maintains the abilities that made him a top prospect.
