The article focuses on several baseball teams. OF Willy Taveras might be forced to the minors if 1B Jeff Bagwell plays in the field for the Houston Astros this season. The Colorado Rockies' 3B Jeff Baker and 1B Ryan Shealy are learning to play the outfield and might compete for a roster spot in camp. The Arizona Diamondbacks' corners are a lot greener with 1B Conor Jackson and 3B Chad Tracy, but the middle is more athletic with the addition of 2B Orlando Hudson. The New York Mets pretty much knows what to expect from 1B Carlos Deigado, SS Jose Reyes and 3B David Wright. The Philadelphia Phillies' SS Jimmy Rollins, 2B Chase Utley and 1B Ryan Howard are the core of the league's most powerful infield.
