Jack Flaherty, Juan Soto and more fresh faces to watch during the 2019 MLB playoffs

A new baseball postseason brings with it a chance for new players to have their star moment.

Around Major League Baseball right now, there are quite a few young players who have had stellar seasons and are now ready to approach the biggest month of the season — when the lighters are brighter, the headlines are bigger and the whole nation is watching.

Sure, we’ll see the likes of Clayton Kershaw, Alex Bregman, Max Scherzer and Aaron Judge playing October baseball. But we’ll also see stars-in-the-making like Jack Flaherty, Juan Soto, Yordan Alvarez and Gavin Lux.

Our crew of MLB writers picked one such fresh face from each postseason team, names you should know about as you prepare for baseball’s exciting final month.

Note to self: Check back in when the playoffs are over, to see how well they performed during it.
