10 MLB players to watch for 2014 season

With the 2014 major-league regular season nearly upon us, we offer 10 players who should make a significant impact for their respective teams.

Teams will look to these stars for significant production

As with any major league season, many storylines emerge several months before the first pitch on opening day.

The 2014 season is no different.

For starters, Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun will be looking for redemption after enduring a 65-game suspension last season for performance-enhancing drug use, and plenty of scorn from fans and media.

Los Angeles centre-fielder Mike Trout and Detroit Tigers Miguel Cabrera will be among the handful of American League hitters vying for the MVP award – again.  

From a heath perspective, Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes and Washington Nationals star outfielder Bryce Harper hope last season’s injuries won’t carry into 2014.

The gallery above features stars aiming to be impact players for their respective teams.
