Every year finds new MLB players living up to their potential or exceeding even the loftiest expectations, delivering a fresh crop of emerging stars to the baseball world.

Kris Bryant and Carlos Correa went from potential stars to legitimate studs upon their arrival in the big leagues last season, while Jake Arrieta and Carlos Carrasco finally figured things out in their late 20s.

  • Has never made an All-Star team
  • Has never won a major award: MVP, Cy Young or Rookie of the Year
  • Has yet to celebrate his 30th birthday

Let's take a look.
