2006 Breakout or Rebound Candidates

Postby San D » Thu Sep 15, 2005 6:16 pm

Who are everyone's 2006 breakout or rebound candidates?

I like Bobby Crosby to put together a full healthy season and he showed huge improvement in cutting down his K's.

I know there's been lots of Kearns thoughts here at the cafe, but he is finishing fairly solidly, and I like his chances for next year.

Chase Utley...a full season of nice stats.
Aubrey Huff.....should rebound with an offseason trade.

Carlos Beltran
Aubrey Huff, agreed
Todd Helton, I guess he'll continue his rebound of the 1st half since he's already rebounding

Francisco Liriano
Ramon Hernandez(I've been saying this for a while though, keeps getting hurt)

Victor Diaz (the mets have to make some space for him)
JJ Hardy- I think he is catching on in the 2nd half
BJ Upton- all he needs is at bats (and a position)
Zach Greinke
Jason Kubel- The Twins will hand him an OF job...

Adrian Beltre- won't be as good as last year, but can't be as bad as this year
Eric Gagne- will be back with a vengeance

Breakout -
Next year Eric Chavez has an Andruw Jones slash Derrek Lee type breakout season.

I'm very close to running out of patience with Aubrey Huff in my keeper league, but I hope for him to finally put it together for a full year.
I'm also going to pick up Eric Gagne as a possible keeper candidate for next year. If he rebuilds strength, he has to be considered a top five closer again.
I know Shea is likely going to continue to hurt his power numbers, but if Beltran falls to the late second next year, you're a fool if you let him pass.

I think that Rickie Weeks has a ton of potential, and since he has the ability to steal 25-45 bases, he'll probably have some value even if his other numbers don't show up yet. I'd say that 20 HR and 35 SB isn't out of the question, although the BA might not be great.

Jose Valverde should establish himself as a valuable closer.

Ben Sheets may be undervalued going into next year as well. His inner ear problems affected his pitching at the beginning of the season, and a bad outing at Coors near the end of the year heavily inflated his ERA. The fact that his season ended early also makes his numbers look less impressive. So I think he's someone who will be undervalued in 2006 and should post numbers similar to those of 2004, with maybe a slightly higher WHIP and a couple more wins.
