An uninteresting spring is defined as one where few (or no) key players go down with an injury, and no one performs well below expectations.

Kolten Wong was unstoppable in the minors. He was like a freight train that couldn’t be stopped. Then he came to the big league club. When he took second base for the St. Louis Cardinals, that freight train ran into a brick wall.
