MLB Spring Training 2014: Team-by-Team Player Stats Tracker

1 of 31

    It feels like just yesterday that the Boston Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals and celebrated a World Series title, but with Major League Baseball’s spring training in full swing, the 2014 season is just on the horizon.

    Even now it feels like the regular season is light-years away, but MLB on Twitter accurately pointed out that spring training is where successful campaigns start:

    The path to greatness is lined with sunshine and palm trees. #SpringTraining pic.twitter.com/rEzSKgjaTj

    — MLB (@MLB) February 25, 2014

    The Red Sox understand that better than perhaps any other team, and manager John Farrell wants his team to treat this year’s spring training as a clean slate after their World Series triumph, according to Mike Bauman of MLB.com:

    To get back to a mindset that was from the first day of Spring Training last year, and not the most recent memory-- which was a great one-- but to recognize that there was a lot of work, a journey that went into getting that final out recorded in Fenway. I think as you've been around the guys since they've reported, the conversation, the talk is about what we do today, and not what's happened previous. In a nutshell, that was probably the overall message.

    Most teams likely feel the same way, and while some probably realize that a championship in 2014 isn’t necessarily realistic, spring training is an important tool for squads of all skill levels.

    It is also a big deal for every player regardless of his age or experience. Veteran players will use spring training as a way to get their feel and timing down leading up to the season, while rookies view it as an opportunity to make their mark.    

    Spring training statistics are more important for some players than others, but fans take great interest in them regardless.

    With that in mind, here is a full listing of every MLB team’s official spring training rosters, along with stats that will be updated after each game.

    First baseman Paul Goldschmidt figures to contend for NL MVP honors this season, but the Diamondbacks need more from their pitching staff, including new acquisition Bronson Arroyo, in order to vie for an NL West title.

    The offense could struggle with catcher Brian McCann now in pinstripes, but healthy returns from pitchers Brandon Beachy and Jonny Venters will help bolster the defending NL East winners.

    With under-the-radar additions such as Ubaldo Jimenez and Nelson Cruz late in free agency, the Orioles should be threats to return to the postseason after falling short in 2013.

    The White Sox are a team in flux with a number of aging position players reaching the twilight of their careers. However, up-and-comers such as Avisail Garcia and Adam Eaton give fans something to look forward to in 2014.

    The Reds are one of the most talented teams in the league that can’t seem to get over the playoff hump, but the pitching trio of Homer Bailey, Johnny Cueto and Mat Latos will make them a force to be reckoned with this season.

Philadelphia Phillies

    The Phillies are seemingly an aging team on the descent, but they could surprise some people provided A.J. Burnett picks up where he left off with the Pirates last season and complements Cole Hamels and Cliff Lee in the starting rotation.

Pittsburgh Pirates

    The Pirates were one of MLB’s best stories in 2013 as they managed to break a long playoff drought, but making the postseason two years in a row is no easy task, especially with key deadline acquisitions Marlon Byrd and Justin Morneau gone.

    The Padres aren’t expected to do much in 2014, but they could definitely make some noise if the starting rotationincluding Andrew Cashner, Josh Johnson and Ian Kennedylives up to its immense potential.

    San Francisco’s struggles surprised many last season, and while offense could be a struggle once again in 2014, a starting rotation that includes Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum and Tim Hudson could be tough to beat.

Seattle Mariners

    Tired of being perennial cellar dwellers, the Mariners went all in this offseason by signing superstar second baseman Robinson Cano. Although he improves the lineup significantly, it remains to be seen if he’ll have any sort of protection.

St. Louis Cardinals

    Few teams have been as consistently good as the Cardinals over the past several years, and the three-headed pitching monster of Adam Wainwright, Michael Wacha and Shelby Miller makes a return trip to the World Series a very real possibility.

Tampa Bay Rays

    The Rays figure to be in the thick of things in the AL East like they are every year, but the status of starting pitcher David Price will take precedence above all else with trade rumors continuing to swirl around the All-Star lefty.

Texas Rangers

    The Rangers are World Series threats each and every season. After acquiring both Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo during the offseason, it can be argued that Texas has the most potent lineup in all of baseball.

Toronto Blue Jays

    Arguably no team was more disappointing in 2013 than the Blue Jays, and even though their roster is quite similar this year, they have an opportunity to play spoiler and perhaps vie for a wild-card spot in the AL now that the pressure has gone away.

Washington Nationals

    The Nationals fell well short of expectations last season when they missed the playoffs, but a big rebound is likely now that Doug Fister has joined Stephen Strasburg, Jordan Zimmermann and Gio Gonzalez to form what is arguably the league’s best starting rotation.
