  1. I think Red Sox prospect Jackie Bradley could make an impact this season. Twitter handle Odie_O9773

  2. colin fenwick Colin – your entry does not include your Twitter handle.

  3. Jurickson Profar looks like a winner to me. He got a homer in his first MLB at bat and later got a double.

  4. Bryce Harper will make the biggest impact this year. – @ce14ic

  5. Starling Marte taking the pirates back to the post season @jgraham2400

  6. Jurickson Profar is a beast. I’m expecting great things from him this year @MarchEric

  7. Profar will have a major impact with Kinsler being moved to 1B. Hopefully Gary Brown will help the Giants sometime this season.


  8. @mattx77 I’m a huge Cardinals fan and I believe Shelby Miller will get his shot to show he’s a top flight SP prospect

  9. Jorge Soler – surprise call up in May will rock the north side! @cjones41

  10. Javier Baez – Guy is a superstar in the making @therealskrip

  11. Hey Ryan,

    My pick is Trevor Bauer. He’s a lock for a rotation spot with the Tribe this year and should make Arizona rue the day they made that trade.


  12. Jose Fernandez will have a big impact for the miami marlins at the end of the year. He is the miami marlins future ace.


  13. Andrelton Simmons will be the most important rookie this year but will be under appreciated because he’s more a defensive player than offensive. @eichelberger988

  14. Can’t believe nobody said Oscar Taveras yet! @PartyLikeMayans

  15. Look for a mid-season call up of Jared Mitchell to push the White Sox into the post season @twilliamgooch

  16. i actually think Manny Machado is the best choice. It not like this years rookie class will be like last years. @bdazzo724

  17. Jurickson Profar with the Texas Rangers. Hamilton is gone, somebody’s going to have to step up to the plate. Lots of room for Profar to take the reigns. I’m hoping he doesn’t…Go Angels. @halfbaiked

  18. I’m goona go with Mike Zunio..Thanks for the contest..@markloftus9677

  19. Dylan Bundy…Thanks for the awesome shot at a box..Pretty awesome of ya

  20. Wil Myers will have a big impact for the Rays this year


  21. I’m hoping JURICKSON PROFAR will make an impact with my Rangers. He already has shown some good potential and with them opening up spots on the field after this off season with all the trades, I’m hoping he will be the one

  22. Jurickson profar..texas

    ThePighammer on twitter…, i found that the topps series 1 card that i have for him is painted looking but when i look it up, shows the real photo. I wonder if its a blunder

  23. I’d like to be unique, but Wil Myers hit .314-37-109 between AA and AAA last year. He’s the dude.


  24. If he gets the opportunity this season it has to be Oscar Taveras @TheWaxFantastic

  25. Billy Hamilton, if he gets called up because he has the speed potential to catch up to the Billy Hamilton of the 1880s stolen base amount.


  26. My money’s on Bryce Harper for 2013!

    Bryce Harper @JennHerrBall

  27. Manny machado will probably be the top rc to get in 2013. @nikthelion1978

  28. Jackie Bradley Jr. could really do big things this season. @TheJayar

  29. Trevor Bauer. The tribe needs this to happen in the worst way if they want to contend

  30. Trevor Bauer will find his niche in Cleveland 20 Game winner! @PNAcollectables
