Minor League Update

Spring Training Games of April 14-16

by Jeff Moore


Friday, March 14th

  • Sean Gilmartin, LHP, Twins: 2 IP, BB, K. He has a bit too much of the old Twins in him—lack of an impact pitch, below-average velocity, too much of a pitch-to-contact approach—but then again, that’s why the Twins were able to land him for Ryan Doumit. Gilmartin can be a serviceable major leaguer, perhaps even a back-end starter, which will be a nice return for a catcher who can’t catch.
  • Manny Banuelos, LHP, Yankees: 1/3 IP, 2 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, K. The next time you want your favorite team’s pitcher to “just have Tommy John surgery and get it over with,” remember that Banuelos is almost 18 months removed from his surgery and is still very much trying to regain his form.
  • Kolten Wong, 2B, Cardinals: 2-3, 2 R, 3B. When Wong is a solid regular who is noted for his gritty, heads-up play, we will have long since forgotten about him getting picked off in the World Series.
  • Joey Terdoslavich, 1B, Braves: 2-2, 2 R,

March, not April. Unless you have a functioning Delorean.

If Souza, Jr. is going to achieve anything beyond being a 4th outfielder, he will have to do it with a different team. Here's hoping that both Zach Walters and Souza, Jr. have monster minor league years so they can be traded in a package for a really good pitcher.

I see Castellanos wasn't really good on Sunday, however I didn't follow the game so he may have had some time off.

Aaron Sanchez on Sunday: 4 IP, 5 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, 7-0 GO/AO.

For never pitching above High-A, the kid's having a great spring.

I thought the same thing. I mean, a guy goes 2-2 with 2 HR's and all that gets mentioned is Gallo?

My bad, fellas. Long weekend. I missed a guy. Williams deserved to make the list. My apologies to Nick.

While TJ is no sure bet, a long recovery for Banuelos is not proof-positive that "getting it over with" is a bad idea. 18 months would likely have been 18 months regardless; waiting to "rehab" and try to avoid would have merely started the clock later.
