Even though the games in spring training don't count, their value for all 30 Major League Baseball teams and every player is incalculable.
It's the one time of the year where the established big leaguers will play on the same field as the young prospects making their way through the system, preparing to join the ranks of MLB stars.
As we get set for the start of camp in 2014, teams are preparing to get another extended look at their future stars. Some of them will be fighting to make the 25-man roster out of camp, while others are looking to show that they are advancing faster than expected.
Putting these talented young stars alongside big leaguers will help show how far along they are on the development curve, as well as the work that still remains before they can take that final step.
