MLB players who previously dominated the league must now scrap for a regular gig during spring training.
Once at the top of baseball’s stratosphere, these veterans are mere afterthoughts looking to lock down a spot on an MLB roster. No longer fighting for spots on the All-Star team, they now just want a slot on a normal roster.
Oh how the mighty have fallen.
These players' careers are diving faster than the Tower of Terror ride at Disney World. Maybe they’ll soar closer to the top again, but not without first returning to the back of the line.
Injuries have caused decay for some, but others simply aged terribly. So much so that some players on this list remain unsigned with Opening Day just two months away.
These seven players used to be the cream of the crop, but they’ll now struggle to obtain a starting role in 2013.
