Many ballplayers will just be going through the motions during spring training. For them, spring is a time to get some reps in and get back in the swing of things.
Other players won’t be taking spring training so lightly. A select few will be competing for starting jobs, and those jobs are not won by simply going through the motions.
The New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Texas Rangers and Detroit Tigers are among the notables who will have major position battles going on this spring. The Yankees have their catcher position to figure out. The Dodgers must unscramble the left side of their infield. The Rangers need to pick an heir to Josh Hamilton in center field. The Tigers need a new closer.
B/R pop culture lead writer Gabe Zaldivar and I got together to discuss the likely winners of these position battles. As they always are, our ramblings were caught on video.
