15 MLB Prospects Who Gained the Most from Their Spring Training Experience

A staple of Atlanta's farm system for years, Julio Teheran earned the No. 5 spot in the rotation thanks to improvements shown in spring training.

If spring training stats don't matter—for the record, they don't—there are certain things that you can look for to measure, at least to some degree, progression from a prospect that you may not have noticed before. 

One of the great advantages to a spring training like the one we had this year, which feels like it has been about six months long because of the World Baseball Classic, is that it gave more young talent a chance to shine on the same field as established big-league players.

Even if a prospect wasn't going to make the 25-man roster out of spring training, just having the learning experience of playing in a big league-style game can do wonders for a player heading into the minor league season. 

So as we get ready to put a final bow on spring training this season, it is time to look at the prospects who made the most out of their time in Arizona or Florida. 

Note: All spring stats are through Sunday, March 24 and courtesy of MLB.com unless otherwise noted.
