Default Who will be this year's Mike Trout?

Last year in our fantasy baseball league, Mike Trout went undrafted. So this year, who do you think if anybody will produce like Trout did last year. Surely some rookies will put up good numbers and they may not match what Trout did last year but this player or two will really help your fantasy team. My pick would be Wil Myers for the Rays. The Rays gave up a lot to pick this kid up so they must have an eye for him.

Mike Trouts come along every 50-60 years. What about that Billy Hamilton from the Reds? I really don't know much about him but I bet he could inflict some damage.

He's learning a new position (CF) and might not see any time in the bigs this season.

Billy Hamilton will have a much harder time getting on base in the majors. There's no doubt that he can wreck things as soon as he gets on base, at any level.

I just looked up his minor league stats and he got on base quite a bit, I was thinking he was a Dee Gordon type. I agree, he deff won't be getting on base as much in the majors though.

Nobody will be like Mike Trout.

My best guess for a young prospect to break out on the offensive end would have to be Wil Myers. The kid hits the ball all over the park with 30+ HR potential and from what I've read has a right fielder's arm. Considering all of this, he is only a 22 year old.
