Some people look down on Spring Training saying that “it is just a warm up for the players,” “the real payers don’t play much,” “you can’t predict anything from it.”

Truth is, Spring Training is a great way to judge how a player is performing coming into the season.  A player can come in hot and hit 10 homers in April or a player can come in cold and bat under .100 for the first few months.  Obviously these are not the only two possibilities, but you get the idea. Performance in Spring Training shows how a player will do in the regular season.

During Spring Training a player can secure himself a role on the team, a prospect can show what he’s got, a bench player can step up to a starting role or any number of possibilities.

This Spring Training there are a few storylines for the Phillies that every fan should be watching, and these are those storylines.
