The Super Bowl is now over, and that means MLB spring training is right around the corner. Players will soon begin workouts, preparing their bodies for the six-month grind of the regular season.
Before we know it, teams will suit up and start playing games. Baseball is almost back.
One of the more interesting aspects of spring training is the small competitions each team has. There's always battles for roster spots between a handful of guys, usually consisting of experienced veterans and younger players looking to make a name for themselves.
The Baltimore Orioles, of course, are not without such a circumstance heading into spring training, as the team has a few spots open for competition. And naturally, the team has a few younger prospects who have an outside chance at making an impression during February and March.
