Recap - Top 'Under 27' Breakout Candidates

Before posting the next of the 'Under 27' series - here's a quick recap of the Top 11 'Under 27' breakout candidates for 2008, so far (all the players with more than 800 career at-bats):
  1. Dioner Navarro
  2. Matt Murton
  3. Nick Markakis
  4. Rickie Weeks
  5. Conor Jackson
  6. Edwin Encarnacion
  7. Yuniesky Betancourt
  8. Aaron Hill
  9. Wily Mo Pena
  10. Yadier Molina
  11. Ryan Zimmerman
Note: This list is ranked by projected increase over career line to this point - that's why you see Dioner Navarro at the top spot - he hasn't done much at all yet, whereas Ryan Zimmerman is #11 on the list because he's already put up some very solid numbers, but will continue to show significant improvement in 2008.
