Spring Training Prospect Watch List

I think it would be fun to create a watch list of prospects or young players for Spring Training and keep up with their progress (or lack thereof).  The list can include stats, news, or observations, so feel free to add whatever you like.  I'll start with a basic list and we can go from there.

  • Brett Cecil -- Started Wednesday against the Yankees and promptly gave up a home run to Brett Gardner on the second pitch of the game.  Settled down and went on to pitch 2 innings, striking out 4, walking one.
  • Brett Anderson -- Didn't fair so well in his first start.  1 IP, 3 H, 2 ER, 1 BB
  • Justin Masterson -- Groundball maniac.  Looks like Boston wants to keep him as a starter.  2 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 0 ER, 0 K, 6 GB, 0 FB
  • Rick Porcello -- 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 2 K, 0 BB
  • Jordan Zimmerman -- Great start.  2 IP, 0 H, 3K against Detroit.
  • Matt LaPorta -- Homered Thursday for the Tribe.  Lost a ball in the sun in the outfield.
  • Freddie Freeman -- Went 1 for 2 Thursday with a home run in the 8th.
  • Lars Anderson -- So far hitless.
  • Michael Bowden -- Got knocked around pretty good Friday afternoon.  1.2 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 2 BB
  • Matt Wieters -- Doubled and walked Friday against Florida.
  • Tommy Hanson -- Had some control issues in his first start, but hit 99 on the radar gun.  2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 K, 1 BB
  • Travis Snider -- Homered against the Phillies Thursday.
