We have reached the halfway mark for the 2015 MLB campaign and there are many struggling stars in the league who are set to break out in the second half.
Heading into the 2015 season, there were high expectations for some of the league’s biggest and brightest stars, but those haven’t quite been met by some of baseball’s top players.
Some of the best players in the world have had a tough go of things in the first half and baseball is hoping to see those guys break out soon.
The good thing about this sport is that it’s streaky, so even if there is a drought offensively, it will likely be turned around. For some players, however, that dry spell could last an entire season and that’s when contracts get cheaper, former stars get lost in the mix and careers come to a screeching halt.
Don’t worry, though, because the guys on this list will not get sucked into the season-long struggle that many weaker players inevitably find themselves trying to solve.
It has been said that baseball is one of the toughest games in the world and hitting a fastball is the hardest thing to do in sports, so slumps happen. Injuries happen, too, so I tried to avoid naming guys who have been, or will be, on the disabled list for a long period of time.
Even some guys who are on the DL for over a month, Miguel Cabrera and Giancarlo Stanton, have been having MVP-type seasons for their respective leagues.
Let’s take a look at 10 struggling MLB stars who will definitely be breaking out in the second half of the 2015 season.
