Earlier this offseason, I wrote a piece on each team's biggest breakout candidate entering the 2013 season.
Now, we'll take a look at each team's next big thing. First off, I should probably clarify the difference between the two.
To me, a breakout player is one who makes a significantly bigger impact for a team than he did the previous season, whether it is a rookie landing a key role or an established big leaguer taking his game to the next level.
On the other hand, a team's "next big thing" is a player who has yet to establish himself at the big league level but has the makings of becoming not just a key player for the team moving forward, but a bona fide star.
