Minor League Ball update

A quick update on things to expect at Minor League Ball. . .

****With draft season in the rearview mirror, the next major prospect event is the 2016-2017 international signing period which opens on July 2nd. I am researching this at the moment and will have more thoughts in the coming days, but my initial impression is that this class feels rather thin, particularly on the pitching side, at least as far as Venezuelan and Dominican prospects are concerned.

****After that, the trade deadline will be the next big event and as usual we will have a report on any trade involving prospects.

****We'll continue to pump out MLB Rookie/prospect reviews. Every rookie who gets promoted to the majors will get an updated profile, and we will be adding additional prospects as things progress.

****Over the next few weeks I will be updating the Baseball Prospect Retrospective project to account for the 2014, 2015, and 2016 prospect lists.

****We'll have an All Questions Answered thread next week.

****Feel free to make other suggestions.
