Players assigned to Extended Spring Training generally have little or no experience playing professionally in the United States. These players, for the most part, do not yet have the stamina built up for five months of continuous play, so ease into the action in Extended. Also, there is limited roster space on the four full-season clubs. Finally, some of the players that begin the year in Extended have minor injuries that prevent them from playing on a full-season squad in April.
