Managers' Approaches to ST

Here's a nice piece on Davey Johnson's approach to Spring Training. Notice the few ABs for starting position players. Compare this to the Royals. Gordon has 48; Moustakas has 50; Francoeur 56; Butler 52; Giavotella 44; Escobar 41; Getz 39. So is Yost/Lost a better or worse manager for giving his young players work, even while Johnson is judged a players manager for ABs numbering in the 30s and low 40s for his equally young team. What other factors make for a good "Spring Training manager"? - TL
