The Los Angeles Dodgers, like most other MLB teams, have had their fair share of breakout performers over the years.
2023 figures to be another season in which one (or more!) player(s) explode onto the scene in a big way. There are a handful of young studs who are right on the cusp of greatness for this club.
32-year-old Trayce Thompson is off to a hot start, but he's going to just barely miss out on this list. He had an OPS+ of 136 last season in 80 games for the Padres/Dodgers, so one could argue that his breakout came then. Plus, he is not projected to be a part of the team's everyday lineup.
Shelby Miller is another attractive option, but he is a former All-Star and has experienced success with both the Braves and Cardinals what feels like a lifetime ago.
Let's dive in. Here are the Dodgers' top 3 breakout candidates for the 2023 season.
