Good afternoon everyone and welcome to the daily Minor League Ball Gameday thread. Some items for your consideration:
***Aaron Sanchez of the Toronto Blue Jays is working on a new pitch, adding a slider to go with his fastball/curveball/change-up arsenal. In other Blue Jays news, Marco Estrada is out with an ankle injury and lefty Brett Cecil has been named the closer. BlueBirdBanter has all the details.
***Over at DRaysBay, Daniel Russell reviews the 2011 Tampa Bay Rays draft.
***HalosHeaven takes a look at new Angels third base prospect Kyle Kubitza, acquired in trade from the Braves system over the winter.
***The Colorado Rockies are expanding their analytics department. PurpleRow has the details. They are specifically looking for a "database architect".
UPCOMING MINOR LEAGUE BALL SCHEDULE
In my work queue we find the following:
***Finish updating the Top 20 prospect organization lists to account for trades.
***New series of Prospect Retrospectives and Career Profiles. Articles are in the works for Starling Marte, Adam Eaton, Lance Lynn, Yovani Gallardo, Todd Frazier, Brett Gardner, and Denard Span. The first one will be Eaton. Feel free to suggest others if you wish.
***There will be an All-Questions-Answered thread later this week although I don't know the exact day yet.
***Order the 2015 Baseball Prospect Book! You know you want to.
