Minor League Update 12/21
Anyway, MiLB.com recently did an organizational review of the Indians farm system in 2007. This is a good rundown of the top performances in the system last year, and goes through a good listing of the Indians top prospects.
Also, two minor leaguers were in the news recently. Catcher Matt McBride recently had shoulder surgery back in November and may miss the first month or two of the season. This has been a lingering issue for him as he had the shoulder issue since he was drafted in 2006, and it was about time he got it corrected. Hopefully, he comes back 100% and he does not miss much time in 2008. Also, right-hander Randy Newsom is back from Mexico and penned an excellent piece for his running diary at Baseball America about his experience in the Arizona Fall League and Mexican Winter League. A must read.
Last, since this may be my last update before Christmas comes, I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their support as well as wish everyone a safe and happy holiday season. Happy Holidays!
