MLB: 5 hitters who could bounce back in 2018
These five hitters may not have met expectations in 2017, but here’s why they could in 2018.
Some players make playing baseball look like the easiest job in the world while others make it look obvious how tough it really is to play the game. Even the best of the best go through struggles over the course of the 162-game season and beyond and that was evident for some guys last season.
