European Baseball will have a couple of players in the big leagues this year. Germany’s Max Kepler of the Minnesota Twins looks to confirm his breakout season last summer. Dutch infielders Andrelton Simmons (Los Angeles Angels), Xander Bogaerts (Boston Red Sox) and Didi Gregorius (New York Yankees) are supposed to play key roles with their clubs as well. Gregorius needs to wait until May though after getting injured near the end of the 2017 World Baseball Classic. Additionally, Lithuania’s Dovydas Neverauskas of the Pittsburgh Pirates is on the verge of breaking into the Major Leagues after he got added to the 40-man roster this past offseason.
