When spring training begins next week, teams will have dozens of players to get a good look at in the weeks to come before the season arrives.
All the while, they'll have a magic number in mind: 25. They need to take a couple dozen and somehow, some way cut it down to 25.
This is going to involve saying "thanks, but no thanks" to the majority of the non-roster invitees they've invited along for the ride. For non-roster invitees, spring training may as well be one great big Thunderdome: Many will enter, few will leave.
I have my eye on 10 non-roster invitees with solid chances of starting the season in the big leagues.
