Notes on eight prospects, including Braves outfielder Joey Terdoslavich and Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco.

Prospect of the Day: Joey Terdoslavich, LF, Braves (Toros del Este, DWL): 3-4, 2B, 3B, K. International league rosters are in constant flux, and Terdoslavich was a late addition to the Toros. He went 3-4 in his first game, showing the extra-base power that makes him an attractive bench option for the Braves. He won’t be playing first base (his natural position) for them any time soon, but he’s playing the outfield this winter to gain more experience at his new secondary position.

Profiling five former top prospects in the AL who have to make a move this season or risk being busts.

Following the development of baseball prospects can be a heart-wrenching addiction. The can’t-miss wunderkinds miss, the overlooked organizational soldiers earn major-league roles out of nowhere, and players you’ve grown fond of slowly fade out of the top 10s, top 20s, and top 100s as the years pass.

The five players highlighted below were all, at one time or another, considered potential major-league stars. Ineffectiveness, failure to make adjustments, and injuries have contributed to their collective fall from grace, and all five now face a make-or-break summer that will either re-establish them as prospects or push them into non-prospect territory.

Seattle's farm director discusses Dustin Ackley's move to second base and the state of the M's system.

The Mariners are trending upward, but if they hope to continue their ascent and subsequently remain a perennial contender, a strong farm system will be a prerequisite. Much of that responsibility rests on the shoulders of Pedro Grifol. The club's director of minor league operations since November of 2008, Grifol is in charge of a variable smorgasbord of intriguing talent, one that includes mega-prospect Dustin Ackley and a distinct international flavor that features the likes of Greg Halman, Alex Liddi, and Carlos Triunfel. A former catcher who played nine professional seasons, the 40-year-old Grifol has been inthe Seattle organization since 2000, having previously served as a scout, minor league manager, and field coordinator.

Even dealing away a trio of talents to add Cliff Lee doesn't sap too much star power from the Seattle system.

Winter League Preview

5

Carlos J. Lugo

A preview of the Dominican Winter League, taking a look at the teams, stadiums, managers, and players to watch for.

The "National Religion" came back on October 16th, as the Dominican League launched its 56th edition. Reliably praised as having the highest level of talent among the winter leagues, one should expect to watch another mix of highly ranked prospects, mid-level major leaguers, a few recognizable American players, veterans looking for another shot, and some major league stars between now and the end of the Caribbean Series in February. The league format has six teams playing a 50-game regular-season schedule, with the four best records advancing to a long 18-game round-robin playoff, and the two remaining best clubs play a best-of-nine final series to decide the league's champion. Without further ado, here's what this season will bring us:

Tigres del Licey (Licey Tigers)
Home: Santo Domingo
2008-09 record: 26-24, fourth place (tied) regular season; 12-6, first place round-robin; beat the Gigantes in the final series 5-0.
Ballpark: Estadio Quisqueya; strong pitcher's park, with a Park Factor of 92.

Future Shock: Monday Ten Pack

Kevin Goldstein

From prospects at the lowest rungs to players who can help their parent clubs down the stretch, a ten-spot of pleasing prospects.

Lonnie Chisenhall, SS, Short-Season Mahoning Valley (Indians)
Chisenhall was a mildly surprising first-round pick this year, as most saw him as more of a supplemental-round type of talent. He signed quickly, and then got off to a slow start in his pro debut, batting .158 in his first nine games. From that point forward, though, he's been doing what he was paid seven figures to do—hit. With two doubles on Saturday and a triple and home run yesterday, Chisenhall is now batting .267/.328/.426 overall, and is 13-for-35 with three bombs in his last nine contests. He's made 11 errors already, but he's not really a shortstop anyway, and will likely slide to the left or right in his full-season debut next year. For now, what's important is that he's hitting.
