The Alomar Spring Training Award

We have heard about how hot spring training numbers don't really translate to successful regular season numbers. We can pull Ty Wiggington's numbers from his final year on the Pirates for good measure. I brought up the case of Brandon Webb from last year as he had a decent Spring and he turned that into a Cy Young. But, one category we have not explored is the case of the one time great player who see's their skill as non-existent in spring training. Perfect example is Robby Alomar two years ago with the Rays. This led to the emergence of Jorge Cantu. I throw it out there now. Give me some examples of some players who are going out for the final count and the hot young player who will get their chance.
