With the first month of the baseball season in the books, we can look ahead in projecting which of the early season standouts will continue their march towards individual awards.
On the other hand, we can start to wonder about some of the projected stars that are off to below average starts.
Is an early season slump the sign of a down year, a masked injury or a small sample that will correct itself with more at-bats or innings?
In the case of most of our All-Bust Team, there is a track record of performance over the course of a 162-game season. As the summer heats up, so should most of these projected stars.
Yet, in some cases, doubt should creep in. If the league has detected a hitch in a swing or picked up on a delivery, performance may not rise to the occasion.
Without further ado, MLB's All-Bust Team for the first month of the season.
