Minor League Update – Roy Smith

To answer some questions as to the whereabouts of some of our minor league players — John Meloan, a right-handed pitcher out of the University of Arizona from last year’s draft is in extended Spring Training rehabbing a sore elbow.

Pitchers Steve Johnson and Josh Wall are also in extended and are slated to be in the starting rotation at Ogden, our short season Single-A club. The same goes for Scott Van Slyke and Josh Bell, as they in extended and are awaiting the Short A season.

Some of our international prospects to be aware of at the Single-A level are left-hander  Alberto Bastardo, who we selected in the minor league phase of the Rule V draft; Mario Alvarez, left-hander Marlon Arias, Jesus Rodriguez, and Fernando Felix. These are all pitchers in Columbus to keep your eye on.

Thanks Roy Smith. It seems we are moving slower with our pitchers then we have had in the past. Our 2004 2nd rounder blake johnson and 4th rounder javy guerra both started the the next year in Columbus. Same goes with 2nd rounder Chuck Tiffany. I am just a bit suprised that 2nd rounder josh wall didnt make the same jump as well.

anyways, thanks for answering my thread request. it was good info.
