Barry ZitoSan, Francisco Giants:

Chien-Ming Wang, New York Yankees:
After a very promising first season and equally as good second Wang is fast becoming a major force on the Yankees team and is a regular at the top of their rotation.
Kevin Youkilis, Boston Red Sox:
With an excellent eye for hitting the ball and flexibility in defence Kevin has been moved around the Red Soxs line up for the last few years but he has now established himself as their starting first baseman.
Dubbed "The Greek God of Walks" because he doesn't mind walking to first in order to set things for Ortiz and Ramirez who hit behind him.
