2009 Minor League Depth Chart

February 3, 2009

Here is an up-to-date minor league depth chart. Again, this is not set in stone. While Columbus and Akron look pretty set aside from a few potential changes to the bullpen, the Kinston and Lake County lineups could look a lot different when spring training breaks. The bullpens in particular at Kinston and Lake County should be a highly contested camp battle this spring as there are a lot of good candidates to fill the roles.

02/03/2009 Update: Changed Matt McBride to the outfield and added newly acquired Mickey Hall to the outfield. Also, note, while Alex Castillo is listed as the starting Kinston catcher and Brian Juhl the backup, others like Michael Valadez, Doug Pickens, and Richard Martinez have just as god a chance to fill either spot in Kinston. Should make for a great camp battle this spring.
