Funny you should call the rookie of the year a breakout candidate.

Burroughs

Jody Gerut (if no one noticed the nice #'s he put up last year)
Coco Crisp
Brad Fullmer (not a breakout, but a forgotten man. Will DH in Texas -- a very favorable lefty park)

I like Byrd and Crede off the list. I don't think Berroa will take a step up this season. Gibbons already broke out last season so I don't think he can be classified as a candidate. Garland I'm debating the possibility. Towers I'm curious about though. Why do you think he'll break out? Does he even have the talent to break out?
