This season has introduced so much young talent that it is overwhelming — the MLB youth movement is in full effect. Some names you may know about, while others are still waiting for their ink to dry on the back of their major league jerseys.

From a young first baseman taking over responsibilities for a 14-year veteran to a baby-faced slugger in the Bay Area tearing up the scene, this crop of budding talent needs to be highlighted.

This list was constructed more than likely without your favorite player in mind. So we apologize for that first and foremost. We know about Aaron Judge, we have written about him numerous times.

Here are some of the young faces you should familiarize yourself with as the next generation of burgeoning stars.
