If/when the 2020 Major League Baseball season begins, who are three candidates to have a breakout season for the Pittsburgh Pirates?

A week ago yesterday, Major League Baseball suspended Spring Training games and announced the regular season would not start on time due to the spread of COVID-19. Since then, MLB has gone on to announce that the start of the regular season will be later than the original two week delayed date. Additionally, multiple teams, including the Pittsburgh Pirates, have attempted to remain in their spring homes to keep working out. Although, as we learned on Thursday, that is not going as originally planned either.

While the belief is now that any sort of baseball season will not start until at least June, there are still topics that can be discussed by baseball fans. For fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates, one topic that can be discussed is who are breakout candidates for a potential 2020 season?

Every MLB season there are breakout players across the sport. Each team has multiple breakout players each season. For the 2019 Pirates, there were outfielder Bryan Reynolds and infielder Kevin Newman. So, if/when the 2020 MLB season begins, who are three potential breakout candidates for the Pirates?
