AFL Update

August 27, 2009

I had listed seven players the other day who were going to play in the Arizona Fall League, but apparently it will now be eight players. The addition from the previous listing is right-hander Carlton Smith. Here is the full list:

RHP Connor Graham
RHP Josh Judy
RHP Zach Putnam
RHP Carlton Smith
INF Josh Rodriguez
1B/OF/C Matt McBride
INF Carlos Rivero
OF Nick Weglarz

And yes, McBride will go out to the AFL and is expected to catch once or twice a week. This is an interesting development, and looks more like an opportunity to test his arm strength and see if he may be able to handle a more permanent switch back to catcher next year. This is of course a position of need as below Carlos Santana - who will be in Triple-A - there is not much catching depth at all at the moment. If he were to move back to catcher, he surely would be the everyday guy there at Akron next year.
