Highlights

Mets 3B David Wright – “I just love the energy, the enthusiasm, the passion that this team has.”

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly – “I look at us as a little deeper, more of a kind of professional day in day out fight for your outs type lineup.”

Nationals SP Max Scherzer – “I wanted to go to a winning ball club. Obviously when the Nationals called with the talent they have here, this a an organization you want to be a part of for seven years.”

Braves 1B Freddie Freeman – “It’s definitely a little different this year. The team is built differently and we’ve got a lot of new guys so we’re trying to build chemistry as quick as we can so we can get off to a quick start.”

Diamondbacks Chief Baseball Office Tony La Russa – “The thing that I noticed when I get here int he last half of the year, the everyday talent nucleus is better than 98 losses. They just got savaged by injuries.”

Indians manager Terry Francona – “But I think we have a reason to be optimistic. Now we have to go work and turn that optimism into wins during the season.”

Tigers SP David Price – “Winning is kind of a tradition here so we want to continue that and get to the postseason and put our best foot forward.”

Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki – “I’ve told everybody the same thing, I’ve prepared, I did my rehab, I do everything I possibly can to stay on the field. So watch me play and you guys tell me what you think.”

Astros OF George Springer – “To have some experience under my belt and just to be able to slowly build off of all of that is helpful.”

Reds 2B Brandon Phillips – “I don’t feel like I have anything else to prove. I mean if I stay healthy all my talent and all my stats will be able to speak for itself.”

Mariners 2B Robinson Cano – “They got the right pieces and the Front Office and has a great job.”

Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo – “Bringing in all the talent, re-signing [Jason] Hammel, I could go on and on, but it’s really got a better fell to be a good team and not just and lot of talent.”

Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia – “We made some great moves. We added a lot to our offense. So it’s going to be a fun year.”

Twins OF Torii Hunter – “There’s a lot of talent in there. You know there are a lot of guys in there that can play the game and are definitely the future of Major League Baseball, but the future might be now.”

Orioles 1B Chris Davis – “As long as we stay healthy we’ll be able to compete in the AL East and hopefully for a World Series again.”

Pirates manager Clint Hurdle – “Our focus is on everybody in our organization getting a little bit better today in some area. These men have embraced it.”

Rays 3B Evan Longoria“From the beginning, I really wanted to be one of the guys that was one of those rare guys where they get to spend their whole career in one place.”

Blue Jays C Russell Martin – “Unfortunately when somebody goes down, it’s somebody else’s opportunity to step up and get something done. There’s a lot of young talent in this clubhouse.”

Yankees GM Brian Cashman – “I just know that the best doctors have weighed in [on Masahiro Tanaka’s elbow], they made a recommendation, he’s been pitching, he’s been fine and listen if there’s going to be a problem it will declare itself as a problem.”

Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre – “I wanted to be here and I appreciate that he [Jon Daniels] and the front office also want me.”

Royals GM Dayton Moore – “The success of our team is going to be predicated on the same guys that performed for us last year. It’s going to be our core.”

Padres GM AJ Preller – “One thing we wanted to make sure was we didn’t make any moves that in the short term were big-time sacrifices for what we are trying to do over the course of a three or four-year period.”

Brewers OF Ryan Braun – “When you look up and down these rotations and batting orders, there’s a lot of really good players. … I think the NL Central is probably the toughest division in baseball.”

Giants SP Madison Bumgarner – “[Preventing a World Series hangover] is one of the toughest things to do, but I think everyone’s prepared to go out there and do it.”
