MLB Spring Training Stock Watch: Which Teams Are Soaring and Which Are Falling

Depending on what side of the fence your favorite team falls on, spring training results are either a sign of things to come or something that should be ignored completely.

Excellent play during the spring tends to increase expectations as the regular season kicks off, while disappointing results are dismissed as irrelevant. After all, the games don't mean anything, right?

Perhaps, but the games are played—and rosters are created based upon what coaches, managers and general managers see on the field. A minor leaguer with a strong showing still might not break camp with the club, but his play could set the stage for a midseason promotion if a need arises, while an established veteran who struggles could find himself a free agent when Opening Day hits.

The games mean something—and after the first week of spring training, now's as good a time as any to look at some of the best and worst performances by clubs so far.
