CATCHER: Mike Zunino may finally have hit enough to maintain the full-time job all season. Or maybe he keeps the gig because Mike Marjama and David Freitas will battle for backup.
INFIELD: The recent acquisition of Ryon Healy completes a set group including Robinson Cano, Jean Segura and Kyle Seager.
OUTFIELD: Mitch Haniger and Ben Gamel displayed enough last season to be penciled in the corners this year. Who plays in between is in jeopardy, with Guillermo Heredia the current in-house option.
DESIGNATED HITTER: Nelson Cruz is showing no signs of aging and is one of the reasons the club can experiment a bit with the outfield.
BENCH: Tyler Motter is the jack-of-all-trades. Andrew Romine and Kirk Nieuwenhuis were both brough in to bolster depth.
ROTATION: If healthy, James Paxton has ace potential. Felix Hernandez and Mike Leake offer veteran presence while Ariel Miranda and Erasmo Ramirez attempt to build on last season. Andrew Moore and Marco Gonzalez have MLB experience. Drew Smyly may make a cameo at the very end.
BULLPEN: Edwin Diaz, who overcame a couple rough patches, is back as closer. Nick Vincent, David Phelps, James Pazos, Shae Simmons, Tony Zych, Dan Altavilla and Marc Rzepczynski are a nice group of relievers.
PROSPECTS TO WATCH: No one of consequence is close, with top prospect Kyle Lewis at least a year away. Speaking of which, Lewis was pulled from the Arizona Fall League after feeling something in his surgically repaired knee. It's reportedly not an issue, but it's worth monitoring this spring for those in keeper and dynasty formats.
POSSIBLE ACQUISITIONS: A center fielder and perhaps middle of the rotation starter make sense as the squad isn't that far from being in the wild-card hunt.
