Hey guys, some of you have heard this already but for those that haven’t, the Sally has been 100% of my focus the last 3 seasons. But I began to notice last yr that my interest was starting to wain after writing about the same players for 4-5 months. So in a effort to keep things fresh I decided to branch out and incorporate some Appy Lg games in the 2nd half. If I don’t get too burned out I may change the name of this site and become the Sally and Appy guy (that’s the hope anyway). If you guys have some suggestion for a new site name I’d love to hear it. thanks.
Appy opening day is Thursday and teams are starting to release there preliminary rosters. They’re preliminary because as the new draftees sign, many (primarily the college players) will be assigned here. But I thought I’d comb over the rosters and list any of the players that appear on mlb.com’s team top 30 prospect lists that were released back in March.
I’ll list them geographically. These 5 teams are all pretty close: 60-90 minutes from Asheville
Johnson City Cardinals: SS) Delvin Perez, RHP) Alvaro Seijas, RHP) Johan Oviedo
Elizabethton Twins: SS) Wander Javier, RHP) Huascar Ynoa, 3B) Jose Miranda, RHP) Griffin Jax
Greeneville Astros: CF) Gilberto Celestino
Bristol Pirates: RHP) Travis MacGregor, LHP) Braeden Ogle
The rest are all 3+ hours away
Pulaski Yankees: 3B Dermis Garcia
Burlington Royals: OF) Seuly Matias, SS) Jeison Guzman, C) Sebastion Rivero
Danville Braves LHP) Kyle Muller, SS) Derian Cruz, OF) Sanders Commings
Opening day is tomorrow and only 4 of the 10 teams have released there rosters so far. I’ll look again a few hours
