1) Mike over at RAB updated his top 30 prospects to reflect the addition of new draftees. Some interesting names: Heathcott at 4, Vizcaino at 6, Banuelos at 8, Stoneburner, DeLeon, and Murphy at 14-16. Check out the full list, it has some great stuff, and the comments have some really enlightening thoughts as well.
2) Ian Kennedy is on the road back:
Pitcher Ian Kennedy likely will pitch next month in the instructional league, his first game action since surgery May 12 to remove an aneurysm from beneath his right biceps.
Kennedy said Wednesday it’s doubtful he will return for a minor league game this season. The right-hander is throwing fastballs and changeups during bullpen sessions and could be ready for a simulated game early next month.
The 24-year-old was pitching for Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre when he experienced numbness in his pitching hand. He is set to pitch in the Arizona Fall League later this year.
I had heard that he is not eligible for the Fall League, something that I am still trying to confirm. It is good to see that Ian is healthy and back on the mound.
3) Finally, NoMaas checks in with the minor league assignments for the new draftees:
Slade Heathcott told me he is currently in the GCL with the team, and is hopeful to get in a game tomorrow (8/20) or Friday.
JR Murphy will also be playing in the GCL right away according to a blog from his high school.
Caleb Cotham informed me the plan for him is to start out at Staten Island. He’s preparing in Tampa, will be headed up to NYC sometime around the middle of next week, and said that it’s possible we’ll see him pitch by the week’s end.
Joseph Talerico told me he has just landed in Tampa and will be finishing the season up in the GCL along with Heathcott and Murphy.
Cotham was a fifth round pick who pitched exceptionally well at the Cape. He is a prospect to keep an eye on.
