Your own definition may vary, but in PECOTA’s case “breakout” is all about out-performing track records.

Remembering the baseball players and the men.

Major League Baseball lost two family members this weekend, as both Andy Marte and Yordano Ventura died in separate car accidents in the Dominican Republic. They were about as far away from each other as players as two individuals can get while remaining in the public consciousness.
