I'm almost positive he's still starting at second. That has to be a typo.

He was listed at Beloit last year as an outfielder as well, I'm sure he'll still be the starting 2B. Anyone have any information on Levi Michael's injury. Anyone know if Salcedo is 100% healthy? I thought he had arm surgery towards the end of last season?

A couple other interesting nuggets; Angel Morales is repeating A+ ball again. DJ Baxendale will be in Fort Myers Rotation basically skipping Cedar Rapids. Pat Dean & Alex Myers must both be pitching in New Britain.

Salcedo pitched yesterday a couple of innings, the velocity was a little behind where he should be and his pitches were NOT crisp. The other guys were hitting it hard off him. Personally, I only saw Rosario in the infield yesterday. Meyers was charting the AAA vs. AA yesterday and said he was pitching for New Britain when I talked to the freakish giant. Levi said his legs weren't where they should be.

I don't put much stock in the positions listed on those website rosters. For example, the Kernels roster on their website shows Tyler Grimes as a SS, but he's going to be catching regularly this year. In fact, the roster distributed to media outlets have him listed as a catcher. I just don't know who is responsible for putting out the rosters on MiLB web sites.

b.a.'s write up in the prospect handbook on salcedo was interesting - apparently he had a velocity jump last spring and was hitting 96 but, and i'm sure they're speculating, his body hadn't caught up and he went down for the year.

Yeah I read it to him yesterday when I got him to sign it, don't think he understood too much of it. In fact I got everyone in the Top 30 to sign my BA prospect book except for Arcia (who left camp already) and Hicks (who made the big league club). Only one who said anything about their ranking was 3B Harrison, he said he didn't agree with their assessment.

Those two guys, Gonzales and Vargas, hit the two longest home runs I've ever personally witnessed in Cedar Rapids. A couple years apart, obviously, but they both launched moonshots here while playing for Beloit. Gonzales hit one down the RF line that went out about even with the top of the foul pole when it cleared the fence. Vargas hit one that cleared the scoreboard and may have hit the old Korean War vintage jet fighter that sits well beyond the RCF wall. Those fellas can make a pitcher pay for his mistakes, that's for sure.

Indeed and Gonzales is on top shape from what I saw last week. Add Sano to the mix and you might break the HR record for a Miracle squad.

Might be worth the price of admission in Ft. Myers just to watch those guys take BP.

Morales really needs to just be bumped up a level in my view.

Anyway:

Morales CF
Rosario 2B
Sano 3B
Vargas DH
Gonzales 1B
Ray RF
Koch C
Goncalves LF
Pettersen SS

Is a pretty sweet lineup.

Interesting questions to me here. Is Salcedo healthy? Is Baxendale getting a look at starter? If so who isn't starting between Salcedo, Wheeler, Summers, Baxendale, Boer, Stuifbergen? Assuming Rosario gets the primary reps at 2B does Levi Michaels slide over to SS? How do the reps get split between him and Pettersen? Always fun to see how things work out.

Michaels was a SS in college so that is where I would guess he plays. I wouldn't rule out a nice season by him. I'm sure they will all have a shot to start at some point.
Do or do not. There is no try.

Glad to see the Twins thought enough of Baxendale to essentially have him skip Cedar Rapids
i saw his start where he struck out 8 of 9 hitters, including Buxton, Polonco, Harrison, Goodrum and Walker
his stuff was electric, sat 90-93 with a filthy breaking ball and plus change up
fastball has + arm-side sink and run

Salcedo is giong to start eventually. Stuifbergen will move up to New Britain soonish.

I've liked what I've seen this spring out of Pettersen. He's fielded well and has good at bats. Hits alot of line drives.

Where were you hanging? That was a great game and probably watched by more people than a GCL game over there :)

So, Kvasnicka is primarily an OF again? With Rosario at 2B, I only see 4 OF on this roster.

Sounds like it was a minor league spring training game of High A vs Low A. Which there was probably as many people there are there are for a usual GCL game.
