What we could see from each team in Spring Breakout

February 22nd, 2024

It’s the buzz of Spring Training.

All across camps in both Florida and Arizona, prospects are excited to participate in the inaugural Spring Breakout, the new MLB initiative aimed at showcasing baseball’s best young talent.

The first-of-its-kind event -- which will run from March 14-17 in both the Grapefruit and Cactus Leagues -- will put prospects front-and-center, as all 30 farm systems get the chance to form rosters full of their best prospects and compete against each other in exhibition games.

Think of it like the Futures Game, only earlier on the calendar and with more players, spread out across Major League Baseball. And it seems like every prospect in the sport is wanting to be a part of it.

Here’s what they’re saying in every big league camp, and what we could see from each club’s team in Spring Breakout.
