ST coverage is over, now we wait for minors news
As mentioned in yesterday’s post, our Spring Training coverage has ended and now we’re watching the wires, hoping for some transaction news to help us divine who’s going and where. I’ve reached out to each of the full-season affiliates and again to the folks in DC and have had some feedback (and some success) already.
In the next couple of days, we should start getting some information. As we saw yesterday, the parent club’s 25-man roster has been set and with only Danny Espinosa, Wilson Ramos and Brian Broderick making the cut, the Syracuse roster is going to be laden with “veterans,” creating a ripple effect — we may only see a handful of guys from Harrisburg getting the bump, for example, and (as usual) the Potomac roster is likely to have more carryover than we’d prefer.
Of course, as we mentioned last week with Oliver Perez, that means that some guys are going to get cut that might not have otherwise. I can understand the “no tears for these guys that have had their chances,” but lost on the folks that espouse that view is that some younger guys are going to have to wait longer for theirs.
As always, keep an eye on the site, put us in your RSS feed, or follow us on Twitter. It’s now a waiting game for the minors to start up.
