Minor League Assignments

As much as I love BCB, few things trump AzPhil posting news from Zona. He tracks the minor league assignment intel like nobody else. This edition has two items of particiular interest. One is a bit counter to what most of us would have wanted. The other bit (in the comments below) is rather funny, vague, and positive. The good news is that a tall 20-year old was displaying power hitting with the Peoria squad. In case you are unaware, Jorge Soler just turned 20. I doubt that a player would have a hitting session with a then sign with the Dodgers. Just saying. The other part involves the player assignments. For those that don't wnt to read Phil's (much better) description, the minor league camp is split, not surprisingly into squads. One is Iowa, on Tennessee, one Dayton, and one Peoria. Also, there is a collection of player's considered Boise/Ext Spring Training. As players get released from big league camp, they get moved to Iowa. Then there is (usually) downward pin action. In other words, when the Cubs send down 4 starters to Iowa, some of the guys there get dropped to Tennessee (or released), etc. So, if a guy is in Daytona's camp now, they may well end up in Peoria. So, as you look at the player assignments three weeks before Opening Day, the Boise/Mesa squad includes the following names. Baez, Candelario, Vogelbach, Dunston, and Gretzky. They will probably learn "The Cubs Way" in Arizona.
