There's a moment in every player's career he dreads: Walking into the locker room after a game and being called into the manager's office to be told you didn't make the 25-man roster—either resulting in a trip to the minors or being released from the club.
Most players on thin ice probably act like Willie Mays Hayes in Major League on cut-down day. He walks into the clubhouse fearing a red tag is in his locker, so he cautiously opens it up and can't bring himself to look inside.
Of course, if that tag isn't in there, players probably do the Willie Mays Hayes dance in the parking lot to celebrate.
As we move closer to the end of spring training, a lot of big roster decisions have already been made. Most of the top prospects who were in the lower levels of the minors last year have been sent down, with a few notable exceptions.
There are a handful of big decisions still left to come, affording us the opportunity to discuss the players who have done an admirable job in camp but are still on the outside looking in at an MLB job.
