Besides the usual suspects (O’Hoppe, Stott), Ben Brown had some eye popping numbers in a short stint at Lakewood. It’ll be interesting to see how he has recovered from TJ.
I think he’s pitching the opener.
7 guys who are 24 or older. That is not a good sign.
Not everybody on the roster will be legitimate prospects. You will need other players to round out a roster.
Some of those older players were just signed like Adams though, or the NDFAs from the last draft which included a few college seniors. Those players making their debut should probably start in High A. They’ll have a shorter leash to perform than the younger players. I suspect most teams will be slightly older in A ball this year (both levels).
Have to remember….the older college guys missed last season, …..and this is one rung lower than Reading and Double-AA….so some will be in Reading come July or August.
Promotions are usually expected mid-season, and then some will come up from Clearwater to Jersey Shore.
I would expect some movement as the draft approaches/occurs. Teams will have to release players or get tricky to accommodate newly signed players and stay at the permitted 180 player level for domestic players in the minors.
Is there also a player level/limit at the DR Academy?
Didn’t mean to sound coy there. But, things may change once there is an international draft. The cheap teams (poor teams) may try to impose limits the way they did to force contraction.
Ok……..will be interesting to see how things transpire this summer.
Also we look forward to hearing the Commissioner’s remarks on many topiocs connected to baseball….especially an international draft.
They might be able to sign players to 2022 contracts so they don’t hit the organizational limit in July. I kind of thought that all the new draftees will not play much if at all this year with the later draft anyway.
They will have the MLB Draft League (68 games-6 teams)….a developmental league for the eligible draftees…prior to the draft…Jedd Gyorko (Black Bears) and Coco Crisp (Scrappers) are managers of two of the teams….Crosscutters will be managed by Billy Horton.
Attend lotta college games. It’s exciting to see velocity. But there are guys who have velocity and know where it’s going and guys that have no control of it.
