National League East Spring Training Questions

With Spring Training underway in Major League baseball, we thought we would take a trip around the bases and raise questions surrounding all thirty teams. It appears that there are going to be a lot of upset baseball fans this season as many team executives have assembled rosters that appear to be more suited for AAA baseball and even AA in some cases.

New York Mets
If Matt Harvey pitches effective in Spring training games, does he break camp with the team or does GM Sandy Alderson move him for prospects or bullpen depth? Sell high Sandy, sell high.

Washington Nationals
Is Nationals neophyte manager Dave Martinez ready to lead what many consider one of the top three teams in the National League?

Atlanta Braves
After Julio Teheran and Brandon McCarthy, what young arms in the Braves system will step up to fill rotation spots 3 through 5? Mike Foltynewicz and Sean Newcomb should compete for two of the top four rotation spots but who will it be out of Luiz Gohara, Max Fried, Lucas Sims, Mike Soroka and Kolby Allard for the fifth spot?

Philadelphia Phillies
Who are these guys? A question new skipper Gabe Kapler is probably asking himself right now.

Miami Marlins
Who goes next? A question that is bantered around the Marlins clubhouse as well as the sport talk airwaves of Miami. New CEO Derek Jeter worked overtime this past offseason to lessen the financial burden on the Marlins by jettisoning the contracts of Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, Dee Gordon, and Marcell Ozuna.
