Gerrit Cole, Anthony Rendon, Mookie Betts, Josh Donaldson, Yasmani Grandal, Hyun-jin Ryu, Corey Kluber, Zack Wheeler, Didi Gregorius, Cole Hamels, Nick Castellanos and Mike Moustakas were among baseball's stars that changed teams this offseason.

Though the New York Yankees appear to be the World Series favorites after adding Cole, fans of all teams feel excited around this time of year as pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training ahead of a new MLB season. After so much turnover this winter, the chance to see players in their new threads will be especially exciting this spring.
