Good afternoon prospect watchers. Let's get down to business.
***Yesterday's Minor League Ball Gameday thread.
***Chad Bettis of the Colorado Rockies will be Prospect of the Day tomorrow. I'm adding Max Stassi of the Houston Astros to the list for Friday. Andrew Lambo of the Pirates and Christian Bethancourt of the Braves will follow.
***Over at Beyond the Boxscore, Blake Murphy takes a look at Cincinnati Reds slugger Jay Bruce, who (to this point anyway) seems to have peaked as an above-average player but not the superstar expected. Bruce seems like a really good candidate for a Prospect Retrospective. I'll work one up.
***Jason Hunt at Faketeams has an updated look at Arizona Diamondbacks pitching prospect Archie Bradley.
***Also at Faketeams, Daniel Kelley examines the fantasy potential of White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia.
***Today's schedule of minor league baseball games.
