Evan Gattis had a fantastic week after struggling for an extended period of time.

It's fitting that as the MLB first-year player draft enters its second day, we take a look back at the stars of the past week.

After all, each of the players featured here was just getting their start in professional baseball at one point. As a matter of fact, one of them was the first pick in the 2009 MLB draft.

As always, this will be to the point. One player will represent each fielding position and the designated hitter, while one hurler will get the call for the lot of them.

The only caveat is that each position player must have appeared in at least four games at the position for which he is being considered. The one exception is at designated hitter, where the minimum threshold is three games thanks to interleague play limiting the number of starts certain players get.
