It would be easy to scan the spring training leaderboards, find the player with the best numbers at each position and slot them into a spot on our 2016 All-Spring Training team. But sitting among the league leaders alone doesn't land a player on our squad.

The roster includes prospects who weren't expected to contribute this early, players who have surged ahead in position battles and veterans chasing a chance at redemption.
Which players have stood out from the rest through the first two weeks of spring training? Let's take a look.
