Minor Happenings: Chen Is Exploding In Lake County
This is the second part of Minor Happenings this week as part one posted yesterday.
The Indians are preparing for the 2010 MLB Draft which gets started this coming Monday night June 7th and then carries on with rounds 2-30 on Tuesday June 8th and rounds 31-50 on Wednesday June 9th. Me along with several others on the site will be posting the picks and tons of information as it comes in, so if the draft is your thing and you crave information on the new players in the system, the IPI is the place to be.
I was in Lake County last night and was able to talk with several Indians brass as well as a couple scouts from other organizations. One name in particular which came up was Roberto Perez as the feeling was mutual among all parties that he is a big league defensive catcher RIGHT NOW. He still needs work with the bat, but the feeling is it will come, but worst case the feeling is he will be at worst a major league backup provided he avoids injuries and continues to work hard. I will have more on him soon in a feature piece on the site.
