Augusta enters with one of the most talented teams Lake Olmstead Stadium has housed in a while. The roster is full of prospects on the mound and in the field between arm-strength guys drafted high and toolsy position players with big bonuses.

 

I detailed the pitching side of the GreenJackets roster. Now, it's time for the position players, arguably the highlight of this roster.

The Augusta GreenJackets announced the 2016 roster Friday, which means minor league baseball is nearly here. As usual, the GreenJackets will open on the road during Masters Week, starting at Rome on April 7. The home opener is April 14 against Charleston.

You read the stories every spring. A player comes to camp with different mechanics. A player has shortened something or cleaned up something to make him better. Sometimes it carries over into the season and he's better for it. Sometimes he reverts to his old mechanics by the time his team breaks camp.

 

In the case of Hector Olivera, I don't know if his changes this spring are here to stay, but they're good in theory and it's in his best interest to make them work.

There aren't a ton of moments you want to relive from Julio Teheran's 2015 season, but let's go back to a good one for the sake of my amusement.

I detailed the prospects and non-roster invitees in Braves camp this spring in my previous post. Considering where the Braves are in their rebuild, that's the most important aspect of this year's spring training. This part, going over other 40-man players, is more about filling out the 25-man roster and possibly finding a player or two who could be serviceable in the future.
