Spring workout dates announced for all clubs

Spring is officially on the horizon.

Major League Baseball announced the first Spring Training workout dates for all 30 of its clubs on Thursday. Pitchers and catchers for the reigning World Series champion Giants -- along with the Phillies, Pirates and Reds -- will be the first to work out, with a Feb. 19 start date. Thirteen other clubs will work out pitchers and catchers for the first time the following day.

That's right, folks: Just 42 days until the first pitches of the 2015 season are thrown.

The first full-squad workouts will take place on Feb. 24. Those four teams will be joined by the Marlins, White Sox, Indians and Tigers as the first to have their entire team begin working out.

The Phillies will play the University of Tampa on March 1 in the first Spring Training game for any team. Grapefruit and Cactus League play will kick off two days later, with a slate that features five games between big league clubs.

The Twins, Rays and Blue Jays will be the final three clubs to begin working out, with pitchers and catchers set for action on Feb. 23. The Rays and Twins won't go through their first full-squad workouts until Feb. 28, the latest date for any team.
