The 2017 MLB season is fast approaching, which means it’s time to start discussing who will be the new breakout star.
Pirates first baseman Josh Bell is a prime Cheap Islanders Jerseys candidate.
The 24-year-old power hitter played in 45 games last season for Pittsburgh. He slugged .273/.368/.406 with three home runs and 19 RBIs. In 128 at-bats, Bell also drew 21 walks.
The door has opened for Bell to start for the Pirates next season, and with a new workout plan he’s ready to take advantage of the opportunity.
Tretter isn’t a huge name, but the 6-4 307-pound center is exactly what the Browns needed. Cameron Erving was the center in Cleveland last year, but struggled with the position. He’s expected to move to right tackle in 2017 as the Browns try to figure out what to do with him.
Pro Football Focus had Tretter as their fifth-best center last season before he suffered an injury. He was the Packers’ starter for seven games.
Retaining guard Joel Bitonio was also important for Cleveland. He’s had some trouble staying on the field, missing 11 games in 2016, but when he plays he’s one of the best. He and Joe Thomas will protect the left side of the line, pairing up to be a lethal duo.
Zeitler joining the Browns, who have over $102 million in salary cap space, will not only help them by protecting their quarterback, but he’s also stolen from a division foe. The Bengals will now lose Zeitler and Andrew Whitworth, who is headed to the Rams.
