A team's win-loss record during spring training is rarely a good indicator of success in the season ahead, but that does not mean that spring training performance in general should go overlooked.
It's important for players to build momentum heading into the season on an individual level, though avoiding injury and breaking camp with your roster intact is still the single biggest goal of any team's spring training.
What follows is a breakdown of all 30 MLB teams this spring, focusing on the following three areas:
- Offense: who has shined and who has struggled among the projected regulars, as well as a look at how the team has hit as a whole.
- Pitching: who has shined and who has struggled among the projected rotation and key relievers, as well as a look at how the team has pitched as a whole.
- Spring Health Report: a breakdown of any key injuries that were suffered this spring and what major contributors will open the season on the disabled list.
All three areas were then graded, with a grade of "C" for offense and pitching representing an even mix of key players performing well and struggling, and everything else branching out from there. Health was graded based on severity of injuries and importance of players injured.
