Final Spring Training Injury Updates for MLB's Biggest Stars
Paul Sancya/Associated Press

Spring training isn't just a six-week period of preparation for the grind of the regular season, it's a war of attrition for every team in the sport.

When players take the field for meaningless exhibition games, injuries are an unfortunate byproduct of playing the game. Although every star—regardless of age or ability level—needs some semblance of game action in March to prepare for the season, lingering injuries or new ailments can cast a shadow over what should be the promising start of meaningful baseball.

Of course, not all of baseball's injured or recovering stars suffered from Cactus or Grapefruit League spills. Some are still rehabbing and working back into shape after 2013 injuries or long-term battles with bumps and bruises.

Technically, Opening Day has already arrived in the form of baseball in Australia between the Dodgers and Diamondbacks. After another NL West tilt on Sunday night—Dodgers vs. Padres—baseball's "true" Opening Day will arrive.

With spring training coming to a close, here's an update on the biggest stars with injury concerns and ailments heading into April.
