Potential 2015 bounce-back candidates

Many of you would be shocked at how the top 20 in ESPN live drafts looked one year ago. A guy who ended up hitting .196 was actually a first-round pick! A pair of first basemen chosen in the second round combined for nine home runs and 39 RBIs, and one of the starting pitchers deemed a top-10 option won four games while another posted a frightening 4.54 ERA and 1.40 WHIP! In other words, as in every season, there were plenty of disappointing individual performances, which in turn create many opportunities for players to bounce back. The question is whether they will do so.
