Anyone on your favorite MLB team a possible breakout star in 2019?

I believe Aldalberto (Raul) Mondesi of the Royals is going to have a big year.
Over 20 doubles, triples, and HR's along with let's say 40 stolen bases.

Of course he already had 2 triples the first game of the year so he has a good start on those. LOL.
The last two or three months of last year he really started looking like he belongs in the big leagues
after struggling for a while before then. He's only 23 years old and the future could be bright for him.

    Pete Alonso of the Mets. He's been raking since last season.

    I'd go Victor Robles for the Nats..... he's got some wheels and power to boot ~a bit in the Acuna mold....6'-0" 195.
    Fernando Tatis Jr in Padres land looks like a keeper too.
    Lastly, in Chicago Yoan Moncada might have a break out year hopefully lifting his average and OBP...he's been focusing a great deal on hitting the off speed pitches that have roiled him thus far for the Chi-sox. He has a compadre Eloy Jimenez who is supposed to be the next Miguel Cabrera with plenty of power and a plus .300 average. Look out for Kyle Tucker for the Astros ~another high average/homer prospect who might find the field later this year.

    I'm hoping Fernando Tatis Jr is as good as everyone says he is.

    JoeBanzai- What's the deal with the Twins coming back on the Royals two games in a row? Too bad we
    don't have our 2015 relief pitchers.LOL.
    Mondesi had a great two games, 5-10 with a double, triple, Inside the park hr, and stolen base.
    The kid is off to a great start. Buxton gets bruised up banging into the wall trying to catch a Mondesi
    blast off the wall and the next day Buxton steals a base and scores the winning run. DANG!

    I think Devers could break out this year.

    Can Scott Kingery step up and earn regular playing time, either at 2B or 3B. Expected big things from him but really not shown much thus far.
