Thank you, nemesis. This is a great reference. Here are some other potential names to add to the list:
David Patton (was a rule five pick and then quickly sold to the Cubs)
Norris Hopper (traded for Corky Miller; is playing for Milwaukee's AAA team)
Marcus McBeth (lost on waivers to the Red Sox; is playing for Oakland's AAA team)
Drew T. Anderson (playing for Milwaukee's AAA team)
Luis Bolivar (playing in Atlanta's system)

great thread man! very cool to see.

the only suggestion i might give you is for the players that have been traded, to indicate who they were traded for. i remember seeing all of those names at 1 point or another, but for quite a few them, i don't recall who they were traded for.

other than that, great post!

That was a very interesting update on those players.

Nice thread and good job.

Craig Tatum was picked up off of waivers (taken off the 40 man) by the O's from us. Good to see Adam Rosales doing well and still wonder what might have been on Pedro Lopez I thought he looked like a solid kid until he get drilled in the face by the Brewers relief arm whose name escapes me (Matt, Mike or something). Also Miguel Perez I hoped would figure it out with the bat enough to be solid major league backstop, seemed he was an excellent defender.

another name is Brandon Roberts, AA CF for the Minnesota Twins. I think he was traded for Juan Castro.

BTW, are Calvin Medlock, Carlos Guevarra, and Brad Salmon now out of baseball?

06-23-2010, 02:52 PM
Medlock and Guevarra are, Salmon is in the Mexican Minors.

justin turner went 6-6 tonight while hitting for the cycle. Oddly enough he only had 1 rbi, my guess is willy taveras must be hitting in front of him.

Did the Reds give up on Danny Perales too early? What about Jerry Gil? They're both succeeding for Toronto's AAA affiliate. In fact, Jerry Gil is walking less than 2/9IP. That's a far cry from the 8.2BB/9IP from 2010.

Former minor leaguer, the slick-fielding Jose Castro, was released by the Chicago White Sox last week. He hit around .200 between Double-A Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte.
