Here is a pointless exercise I just thought of.
Every year there are a handful of fringe players who go crazy in the spring. Andy Dirks, Lorenzo Cain, Colin Cowgill, Joe Mather, Luis Mendoza last year, to name a few.
Who will 2013’s spring surprises be? Throw some picks in the comments, and six weeks from now I’ll revisit and see if any readers picked out the unexpected stars.
My picks, based on nothing: Johnny Giavotella, Adam Rosales, Michael Bowden.
(Okay, based on slightly less than nothing… reasonably young, and a potential job to win with a good spring.)
