For many Major League Baseball players, Spring Training is all about getting ready for the upcoming season.
Some players are assured starting spots, while others know their role is on the bench.
This year, the Houston Astros have more spots up for grabs in Spring Training than they do spots that are set in stone.
Those who are guaranteed starting spots are Wandy Rodriguez, Bud Norris and Brett Myers in the starting rotation, Carlos Lee at first base, J.D. Martinez in left field, Jose Altuve at second base and Jed Lowrie at shortstop.
Outside of that, it's anyone's guess as to who will be starting.
Here's a look at the position battles in Spring Training and who I believe will come out on top.
