We’ve signed another Latin player, Jesus Chavez. Dunno anything about him.

Another Jesus - seeing a trend perhaps?

Maybe. This information was visible in my toast this morning.

Jesus Sucre's alias so he can get his visa.

MLB.com updated some of our international signings in their database, so I was able to fill in ages, countries, and positions for them.

Any Venezuelans?  Will you be showing that list or have a link?

So from your list that's 16 international signings this off-season.  Do you have some basis for comparison to previous years?

Somebody is playing for our DSL team.    They’re not cloning those players, so they must have signed them.   Just taking a look at the players 19 and under on our DSL roster last year, I count 9 players who weren’t on the 2017 roster, 7 of whom were in their first year of pro ball (the other two had previously played for other teams).   There probably are some age 20+ guys as well.

Thank you again for doing this, I love digging into the detail and trying to track every transaction.  Two quick questions:

1)  Tony's recently posted list of minor league spring training rosters lists a Marcos Molina, who looks to have played in the Mets system.  I didn't see him in the transactions.  Is this recent?  Did we pick him up as a minor league free agent?

2)  As best as I can tell every minor league player in a full season league last year is either on the spring roster or is covered in your transactions page (thanks again for the hard work), except one.  I can't find Jordan Kipper on Tony's roster and I don't see him being cut, retiring, having become a free agent, etc.  Am I missing something?  For example, maybe he's not on the spring training roster due to injury (e.g. I assume that's why Putzig wasn't listed).

    • Another article on Reed from May 2019.  The first 33 games of 2019 have featured a paltry .205/.282/.410 slash as a 24-year-old in Double-A. An 84 wRC+ despite being slightly older than his average competition in the Texas League. Those numbers often describe a prospect afterthought, especially with most statistical categories beginning to normalize. Yet, a look under the hood suggests Reed is on the verge of a breakout that could make him a hot commodity throughout the prospect community before the end of the regular season. https://prospects365.com/2019/05/18/buddy-reed-and-buying-before-a-breakout/
    • It was a heck of a lot better than 2000-2009.  2012 was a truly great year, and 2014 wasn't bad, either.  And hopefully we look back at '19 as the year we finally got on track to having a top-to-bottom modern organization for the first time since the 1970s.
    • OK, I will exhale now.    Have a great Thanksgiving, Tony, and enjoy your time off!
    • Actually he would have to be up by the beginning of 2024, because he would be out of options at that point, using his three option years in 2021, 2022 and 2023, which could potentially further mess up his development.
    • If you're taking Javier and having him mostly sit the bench or hit .100 for all of 2020 I think you'd be looking at him as the possible shortstop in 2024.  He was miserable in low A last year.  On a normal track he'd probably go back there in 2020.  Instead you'd have him essentially miss the year, just working out with the O's.  You probably put him in Frederick in 2021. Maybe if he's really good he ends the year in Bowie.  Most of the year in AA in 2022.  If things work out well he's in AAA in '23, maybe a late callup.  But being more conservative you're looking at mid-year 2024.  Things could break better, his talent really comes out and he's ahead of that schedule.  But in no way do you expect him to be the MLB shortstop in '22.
    • In my opinion, you are WAY too worried about Mountcastle’s defense.    He’s not some klutz out there.    He has a weak arm.    The fact that he played 3 seasons on the left side of the infield tells you that he has the athleticism to play 1B or COF at a reasonably good level.       As to whether I’d lock him up now at that price, it’s a little tough to say.   If you think he’s likely to be about on the level with a Josh Bell or Trey Mancini, it’s probably worth the risk.    If you think he’s more of a Mitch Moreland level bat, then probably not.       And before people start poo-pooing Mitch Moreland, the guy has had a respectable 10-year career in the majors and had a career .883 OPS in the minors.    Most top 100 prospects would love to have Moreland’s career.
