Breaking Australia's MLB player debut drought

The 2000s were a plentiful decade in terms of Australian players making their Major League Baseball debut with at least one player debuting each year. The 2010s began with a bang as there was four players who debuted in two years, but it has now been two seasons since an Australian last made their MLB debut. James Beresford, Andrew Russell and Matt Kennelly all spent significant portions of the 2013 season in AAA. Warwick Saupold also had an impressive season in AA, and as they say in sport there is always next year. Hopefully, some of the above named players get their shot in the big leagues during the 2014 season.
