Thursday, March 2nd players report to Clearwater for the start of Minor League Spring Training. Their first full work out will be on Friday. Then the true baseball smorgasbord begins with non-stop action on four fields. I have some video from Wednesday’s minor league session. The group has grown as more players have reported early although a few have gone off to their WBC teams. Must have been 50-55 players at the Complex today.
The group lists will be available soon. I expect they will start with four groups and expand to five when necessary. The workouts will probably start earlier once camp starts. I would expect a start time along the lines of the major league camp around 10:00 AM. The schedule should be available tomorrow. For now, here’s the video I shot today.
Mitch Walding went yard a few times today
Kyle Martin cleared the right field fence.

That’s Joe Jordan and Matt Klentak at the cage. I think I see the beginning of a bald spot.
