Reclamation projects are always an integral part of any team's spring training agenda.
Whether it's the no-longer top prospect who is still waiting and looking for that breakout year, or the old vet, looking for a few more days of glory at the major league level, spring training is the ideal milieu for the successful reclamation project.
Last year's success story was Lance Berkman.
After a crummy 2010 season where he was traded from his long-time home in Houston to be followed up by a miserable perfomance with the New York Yankees, Berkman came back with a vengeance in 2011 by helping the Cardinals win the World Series and winning NL Comeback Player of the Year himself.
This year, who will be reclaimed from the dredges of MLB infamy? Manny Ramirez? Adam Dunn? Jason Heyward?
To understand the future, though, you can't forget the past. Here are the greatest spring training reclamation projects in the history of each team.
