The winds of change are blowing in Major League Baseball.
An injection of youth, energy and talent has been the rage lately, seemingly regardless of which team you root for.
Obviously, the Washington Nationals phenom Bryce Harper has been stealing national headlines (no pun intended) while many other players are surfacing as solid, productive, borderline stars for their respective ballclubs.
The idea in putting this piece together was to examine each team and deduce which player, if the team were forced to start from scratch tomorrow, the team should build around. In other words, the faces of the future of Major League Baseball.
These players can be prospects, or even a year or two into their MLB careers. Either way, all of the names on this list show promise of being essential to the success of their teams in years to come.
