Osuna will most definitely take care of bidness in japan. Dovydas might be able to cut it in the Lithuanian Penal League but that might be it.

When it comes like a return for a guy like Musgrove, it has already turned out alright if Bednar produces while he is here. The problem with the Musgrove trade is that his trade value was relatively low because he didn't perform here. If the coaching staff was able to eek out more production, that would be different.

Jameson looks like a dude recovering from his second Tommy John surgery...
Do they have him on a pitch count or has he just been that bad?

Looking at his game log so far, he's gone 4.2, 3.2, 5.0, and 4.0 with a pitch count of 74, 84, 80, and 82. On the surface, it looks like they're trying to keep him around 80 pitches, but one of the stats listed at the very end of his log is that he left every game without the lead.

I find it humorous that Stallings has established himself as a legit and reliable MLB catcher after years of FGMNH wanting as little do with him as possible. Dude was DFA'd and outrighted as recently as 2019 while we all continued to get smoke blown up our asses about the future greatness of Elias Diaz.

I think we all know this season will not end well, but it's fun while it lasts.

Apparently someone has introduced the use of substances to the Pirates' pitching staff.

Bradenton released it's roster. Some aggressive placements here. 2019 Pirates DSL2 (aka '96 Bulls) alums Dariel Lopez and Alexander Mojica. Two interesting international guys they got in trades as well, Escotto and Rodriguez.

I hope Mojica has been heavily ingesting hard to detect steroids over the past 18 months in preparation for this season

Also I guess this means Priester ends up in Greensboro to start the season?

Ok, so maybe I was wrong about this one. Bradenton is now a low-a team? Greensboro is the A+?

Yes I can see the confusion here. The FSL used to be a high A league and now apparently it is "Low A Southeast"

And Greensboro used to be in the Sally league which was Low A and apparently now high A.

So in conclusion, **** mlb for messing with minor league baseball.

Philip Evans isn't good anymore. Bad enough that I don't have the desire to look it up to see if it's spelled Philip or Phillip before posting

Here's the rosters for the 4 main minor league team.

Basically, Altoona and below are all interesting. Indy is loaded with guys that have to prove they are capable of passably hanging in the majors. Not like, maxing out as a #5 starter or a backup infielder. Altoona has the interesting hitting prospects, and Greensboro has the interesting pitching prospects. Bradenton has the interesting DSL graduates.
