Key Factors That Will Determine Winners of Phillies' Outfield Position Battles
Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time in quite a while, the Philadelphia Phillies will begin Grapefruit League play with both corner outfield positions up for grabs.

Just who wins those jobs, and what they'll entail, is one of a number of variables this spring. 

In a lot of ways, these position battles will come down to which players the Phillies can trust the most. Can they trust Domonic Brown to perform? Can they trust Darin Ruf to continue his extraordinary development? Can they trust Delmon Young to change? 

And that's just a small taste of what the outfield position battles will entail this spring. The Phillies will have to determine whether those are full-time or part-time roles. They'll have to determine what their bench looks like behind those regulars. 

This is a mammoth battle. In a lot of ways it is a giant free-for-all with at least four positions up for grabs.

Here are a few things to keep an eye on this spring as we follow the Phillies' outfield position battle.
