Minor League Update: Spring Training Games of March 11

6

Jeff Moore

Notes on prospects who stood out in Cactus and Grapefruit League play, including Mets infielder Wilmer Flores.

With most teams making their first round of roster cuts already, a round that typically includes those prospects that are far from the majors, there are fewer prospects seeing playing time in spring training than there were last week. But many are still on the main fields, and some are even realistically competing for roster spots.

Future Shock Blog: Minor League Update: Games of August 18

How D.J. Mitchell might be the first Yankee pitcher to get called up this year and notes on 28 more prospects.

D.J. Mitchell, RHP, Yankees (Triple-A Empire State): 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K.

Mitchell is not the best prospect on the Yankees Triple-A staff, but don't be surprised if he's the first to the majors. Scouts think he could be effective as either a back-end starter or middle reliever, as while he's on the small side, he's ultra-athletic and features a fastball that has slightly above-average velocity and plenty of movement. He's not going to be a star, but he should have big league value, even on a championship-level roster.

The Braves are consistently among the best systems, and are again thanks to the game's most impressive collection of Latin American pitching talent.

Contractual Matters: International Timeline

3

Jeff Euston

The timing of when a foreign amateur free agent signs dictates when he must be protected on a club's 40-man roster.

As a franchise, the Athletics have had their share of high-profile pitching prospects. Lew Krausse Jr. signed for $125,000 two days after graduating from high school in 1961. Charlie Finley paid Catfish Hunter and Blue Moon Odom $75,000 each to sign in 1964. Texas high school star Todd Van Poppel received a record $1.2 million bonus and a major-league contract after being a first-round draft pick in 1990. More recently, left-hander Mark Mulder signed for a franchise draft record $3.2 million bonus in 1998.
