So another spring training is drawing to a close. That means Opening Day is just around the corner, and teams are in a frenzy trying to finalize their 25-man rosters before the March 31 deadline.
Managers and general managers are reviewing the performances of players who are on the cusp of a minor league assignment and a trip to the big leagues. Finishing touches are being put on before the big show, and there are still a lot of questions to be answered.
But along with this madness as each spring training camp comes to an end, star players are slated to open the new season on their team's disabled list, which throws an even bigger monkey wrench into the organization's Opening Day plans.
So as we inch closer to the start of the 2013 regular season, it's time to check out which superstars will miss the start of the new campaign thanks to an injury. And these aren't just any superstars. These are the 2013 Opening Day Disabled List All-Stars, consisting of the very best, albeit disabled, players (one player at each field position, five starting pitchers and three relief pitchers).
Hopefully for these players' clubs, their injuries will heal fast and they will be on the field in no time.
