27-Year Old Players

Players Who May Break Out This Year

Prospecting isn't always about rookies. Sometimes it's about finding established veterans who are about to kick it up a notch. Historically, the age of twenty-seven is a magic time in some ballplayers' development: disappointing players blossom, good ones become great, and the already-great enjoy career years. So counting candles can be a great way to find sleepers, or other good bets to overperform.

Here are all the 27-year old hitters* on MLB rosters, to help you find your own treasures.
