I am now working on the St. Louis Cardinals prospect list. The next team in line is the Oakland Athletics, to be followed by the Philadelphia Phillies, Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies, Seattle Mariners, and the Washington Nationals. This will be followed by a frantic round of editing and release of the 2014 Baseball Prospect Book as soon as humanly possible.
Use this thread to discuss the Oakland Athletics organization. Some possible points of discussion:
***What do you expect from Dan Strailiy going forward? Will he take a step ahead into greater effectiveness,or will he fall back?
***The upper levels of the system have been thinned by player graduations but the lower levels remain intriguing, particularly on the pitching side. Four right-handers stand out in particular: Michael Ynoa, Raul Alcantara, Bobby Wahl, and Nolan Sanburn. Sanburn is probably the least-known of the group but I really liked him a lot when he was drafted out of Indiana. Another right-hander to watch is Dylan Covey. Do you have any names to add here?
***How soon does Addison Russell slot into the big league lineup?
***As always,feel free to discuss sleepers or anything else Oakland-related.
