Picking MLB's 2014 All-Breakout Team Entering June Baseball

Some players go their entire careers without having that breakout performance that makes people stand up and say "Yep, that's the kind of player I thought he could be."

Others take years before they finally put it all together, while some hit the ground running, forcing us to take note of their play from the first moment they step onto a major league field.

We've seen our fair share of breakout performances over the first two months of the 2014 season, and while eight weeks don't make a breakout season, they do make for a breakout two months.

To qualify as a breakout performer—and to avoid having players who have played for about a week making the cut—position players must have appeared in at least half of their team's games. Pitchers must have enough innings under their belts to qualify for their league's leaderboards.

With that in mind, let's take a look at MLB's All-Breakout Team as the calendar flips to June.
