Ladies and gentlemen, the MLB season is here, and there are always things to be looking out for, from the smell of the grass to the peanut shells finding their way in front of seats in the stands.
However, I wanted to take a bit of a different look at things to start the year off. So today, I’ll be taking a look at one hitter and one pitcher for each letter (with a couple of exceptions) to give you an idea what to watch for in the 2019 MLB Season.

Arodys Vizcaino: Under rumors of a possible Kimbrel signing, will Vizcaino continue to grow as the closer for one of the NL’s favorites?
