Minor League Update: Games of December 20

Notes from around the Caribbean Winter Leagues

Another left-handed reliever got paid on Thursday when Tom Gorzelanny, who has a career 4.41 ERA in 735 career big league innings (2.88 ERA in 45 relief appearances with the Nationals in 2012), agreed to a two-year deal with the Brewers for an estimated $6 million. If you throw left-handed and are halfway decent at pitching, chances are you can get a nice fat paycheck in the major leagues.

Checking in on some hard-throwing, command-challenged pitching prospects in the Caribbean Winter Leagues

With pitchers as fragile as they are these days, most organizations would rather send their top pitching prospects home for the winter unless they happened to miss significant time during the regular season. Many of those top prospects have the mid-90's fastballs, wipe out breaking pitches, and enough command to dominate in these leagues. Those who end up pitching in the Caribbean Winter Leagues, however, typically do not. And that's why it's rare to see a performance like Alberto Cabrera had for the Toros Del Este in the Dominican Republic on Sunday. The 24 year-old Cubs prospect walked six -- this is why he's not relaxing at home for the winter -- but he tossed no-hit ball over four shutout innings with 10 strikeouts. This is why the Cubs still think he can help them in the future.

Kevin took in the Midwest League All-Star game, and has some random thoughts on who did well, and who did not.

I spent my Tuesday in Geneva, Illinois for the 2012 Midwest League All-Star game. I took a lot of notes, but instead of cramming everything into an awkward narrative, here's what I saw:

Prospects Will Break Your Heart: Baseball Is My Stereo

30

Jason Parks

Jason's had a busy 48 hours, and shows us what he's been up to by giving us a peek at his notebook.

“Baseball is my stereo, and this is how you set it up and this is how you make it play.” –George Washington 

I spend every day of my life standing on a field watching somebody with talent do something talented, and the past two days might have been the best so far in my journey towards enlightenment. The following is going to be a no frills breakdown of the action I’ve witnessed over the past 48 hours, starting with notes on several prospects in the Padres system, and a few notes on the Dominican Prospect League’s elite travel team, a roster stacked with future July 2nd players. Many of these players will command six-figure bonuses, and a few top-tier prospects could (and perhaps should) command signing bonuses in excess of seven-figures. These are notes as they appear in my notebooks, free from the charm and bitterness of my tongue, or the context of a proper narrative. This is baseball in the raw.
