this week is a bunch of internationals being picked up to fill out rookie rosters. There were a few big signings . A couple of trades and a few major injuries but nothing Super Big!!
The Cincinatti Howlers Traded Raul Flores to the Tampa Bat Stars for Neil Pierce ,Junior Foster ,Randy Lowell.
Tampa bay picks up a bench player with a big bat and some infield defensive help. Cincinatti gets a decent M L setup pitcher, A Nice SP still a few years away from his M L debut and a young C/DH that will be a Hitting Beast as a DH in the Majors in a few years .
The Madison Dairy Heirs Traded Eddie Metcalfe to the Helena Barking Moonbats for Kirby Blair ,Hub Taguchi.
Helena gets a future All-Star CF/2b still 1 or 2 years away from the Majors. Madison picks up a Big Time ML Closer and a Young LF'er with some POP!!!
The San Diego Salmonbellies traded Aramis Crespo to the Jacksonville Manatees for P.T. James
Jacksonville picked up a good ML Closer and San Diego got younger .good trade
M L INJURIES
This Las Vegas SP out a couple of days with shoulder tendinitis.
Ahh to be young again, this Prarie Dogs 2nd baseman suffered a LEG FRACTURE and is out a couple of weeks. WHAT ??? A couple weeks??? I would be out for a year or they would put me down . Must be Star Trek Medicine
This Christen beaver had a sore neck from saying so many prayers. But he'll be back in a couple of days.
This Tampa Bay Long relief pitcher is out a month with the popular Shoulder tendinitis.
This Charleston 1st Baseman tripped over his Bon........Hmm waterpipe and will miss the rest of the season with a heniated disk.
This Memphis SP is out a few weeks with a shoulder sprain. But bloody hell he took a big hit for such a minor injury. Memphis has spent 18 on training and health so its not the owners fault.
Another big hit for San Diego. This Long relief pitcher will miss a few months and may be back for the playoffs.This is the second major injury in as many years so he may retire after this season. The Salmonbellies might want to feed these guys a little beef!!!!
The Moonbats star Right Fielder is out for a week with a stiff neck . He's still trying to make it back after last years torn ankle ligament. To bad he is a great one, hope he makes it back.
The Las Vegas Dealers grabbed this 22 year old young man from Dominica for a 1.4 mil bonus. The price is right for this solid Pitch. He is almost ML ready and could be seeing a call up at the end of this year or next year. He has great control ,decent splits and a good sinker with velocity. The Dealers gamble on this kid might pay off.
Toledo signed this 18 year old from Dominica for a measley 1.0 mil. Defensivly he should never see a ML field , but he could become a DH. He is gonna need a DITR Ferry.
The San Diego Salmonbellies Gut Punched the rest of us by signing this 18 year old Venezualian with 10.3 mil. Ohh thats gonna leave a mark!! This kid can do it all . Hit for average and power ,Defend RF with the best of them. And with his lightning speed and good baserunning skills ,he will be a force to be reckoned with.
Tampa Bay picked up this young player out of Venezuala and signed him for a Spring training invite and 8.5 mil. This kid will hit for average and power . He will never make it as a ML 2 baseman but will make a decent LF/1B . But his low Health will force jmas to play him sparingly to keep him healthy. Therefor it may take many years for javier to reach his projections.
