  1. Angels: Drew Butera


    Drew is the catcher version of being a lefty relief pitcher and breathing.

    1. I want to say that Delmon is going to be the outfield version, but he doesn't really do anything good.

  2. Jason Marquis made it with the Reds!

    Antoan Richardson is on the Rangers DL.

    Jerome Williams is pitching for the Phillies.

    Adam Lind is with the Brewers.

    Cody Martin is with the Atlanta Braves.

    1. Thanks. Lind and Martin were both drafted by the Twins, but never played for them. I completely forgot Jerome Williams was ever a Twin, and I have no memory of it now, but tells me that it's true. Jason Marquis was simply a complete swing and a miss on my part. Thanks again!

  3. Other unsigned draftees that made the majors: J.D. Martinez, Tigers; Jason Vargas, Royals; George Springer, Astros, Cody Martin, Braves; Mario Hollands, Phillies; Aaron Barrett, Nationals; Kolten Wong, Cardinals; Yonder Alonso, Padres; Chase Anderson, Diamondbacks.

    Looks like a bunch of ex-Twins are playing in Mexico: Luis Ayala, Randy Ruiz, Dennys Reyes, JC Romero, Alex Burnett. And a few in Japan: Kris Johnson, Esmerling Vasquez, Yoslan Herrera, and, of course, Tsuyoshi Nyshioka.
