I am in the process of completely a detailed FAQ for the site. Included in this FAQ will be items like what minor league players make, roster limits, team and league websites, stadium info, team records for each affiliate and more. This should be completed soon, and will be linked under the Minor League Reference section.
Today I added the player development staff as well as the coaching staff for each affiliate. These are located under the Minor League Reference section, but here are the direct links:
I’ll also be adding a scouting department listing soon as well.
Also, real quick, Indians outfield prospect Nick Weglarz is playing for Team Canada in the World Cup which is currently underway in Tawain. Weglarz is the youngest player (19) on the Canadian roster and one of the youngest in the World Cup tournament. Yesterday, he went 2-for-4 at the plate with a double and triple, RBI, and two runs scored. The other night he had a pinch hit RBI single in the 8th inning, and then again today he had a pinch hit single for an RBI in the 9th inning. Canada is now out of the tourney, but Weglarz hit well over .400 in limited playing time.
It has been a fantastic year for Weglarz. A year ago at this time he was coming off a hand injury which cost him basically all of his 2006 season, and therefore he was somewhat forgotten about by the fans going into the 2007 season. He had a great year at Lake County last year, raced up the rankings, and caught the attention of baseball executives and scouts in Cleveland and everywhere else because of his power and approach at the plate.
