Each MLB Team's Star Who Could Be Born in 2013
Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports
A.J. Pollock is making the most of his opportunity with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

To quote Jay-Z, “everyday a star is born.”

While that may be true in his world, it isn’t always the case when it comes to baseball. But there are certainly a number of players that could surge into stardom in 2013.

What does it mean to be a star, though? Well, it could mean a lot of things, so let’s define it quickly.

A star means that a player is making a big impact on their respective team, and if they got injured, there would be an obvious hole. The players in contention to become stars won’t necessarily have big roles or be notable names on the roster, but will work hard to do whatever they can to win.

The star in the making doesn’t have to be an MVP candidate or any type of award winner. It’s important to keep that in mind. There can be stars throughout the league, such as Buster Posey or Ryan Braun, and stars within their own teams, such as Andy Pettitte or Ross Detwiler.

So let’s meet the player on each Major League Baseball with a chance to turn into a star this season.
