With spring training underway, it's time to take a look around the league and dish out early grades for MLB's top 15 offseason acquisitions.
The following grades are based on two criteria. The first criterion is the performance level of each new acquisition to this point in the spring. The second and more important criterion is the degree to which these players are fitting in with their new clubs based on comments from teammates, coaches and even the players themselves.
For this story, players who re-signed with their previous team have not been considered, so that means there's no room for Mike Napoli. Ubaldo Jimenez has also been excluded from the list, as he has yet to throw a single pitch in a game for the Baltimore Orioles. The players who did make the cut are listed in order of overall contract value.
With those considerations in mind, here are the early spring training grades for MLB's top 15 offseason acquisitions.
