You smell that?

Ah, the fresh scent of pine tar and eye black.

It’s that time of year again—yes, spring training.

Pitchers are loosening up their arms and hitters are getting back into the swing of things. It’s a fresh new start to baseball. Spring is a period that symbolizes the blossoming of new growth—and baseball is no different.

No team exudes the essence of springtime more than the Oakland Athletics, an organization that has almost completely re-harvested its roster over the winter.

Out with last year’s crop: Trevor Cahill, Gio Gonzalez and Andrew Bailey are all shipped away.

In with fresh seeds like Jarrod Parker, Brad Peacock, Josh Reddick and Yoenis Cespedes.

Let’s take a look at the Athletics roster as they enter spring training. Here, we’ll analyze the team’s infielders who are currently on the A’s roster.
