Picking the Next Generation of Young MLB Superstars

There is a youth movement going on in Major League Baseball, and it took a huge step forward in 2012.

Super-prospects Mike Trout and Bryce Harper became superstar players seemingly overnight, while fellow youngsters Jason Heyward and Giancarlo Stanton further established themselves as young stars.

On the mound, Stephen Strasburg pitched his first (sort of) full season in the majors in 2012. While he dazzled with his right arm, Chris Sale quietly dazzled with his left.

With a fresh season on the horizon, there's a simple question begging to be asked: Who's next?

I've put together my picks for baseball's best young players at each position. The ground rules: only players younger than 25, and no established superstars (i.e. all the guys mentioned above).

Let's take it away.
