The updates have been few and far inbetween of late, but this is mostly because very little is happening in the world of minor league baseball these days. Really, between now and spring training the news will scarce. That said, because of this slow time, I will soon be unveiling my Top 50+ Prospect List. I'll have articles after the 1st of the year, but I may have some sneak peaks at some of the players coming over the next few days before the new year. You won't find more indepth or detailed reports on these players anywhere else.
Also, two minor leaguers were in the news recently. Catcher Matt McBride recently had shoulder surgery back in November and may miss the first month or two of the season. This has been a lingering issue for him as he had the shoulder issue since he was drafted in 2006, and it was about time he got it corrected. Hopefully, he comes back 100% and he does not miss much time in 2008. Also, right-hander Randy Newsom is back from Mexico and penned an excellent piece for his running diary at Baseball America about his experience in the Arizona Fall League and Mexican Winter League. A must read.
Last, since this may be my last update before Christmas comes, I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their support as well as wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. Happy Holidays!
