Recently promoted AGM DeJon Watson comes up with a great idea.
Players involved in the minicamp:
Carlos Alvarez, Clayton Kershaw, James McDonald, Jon Meloan, Greg Miller, Justin Orenduff, Ramon Troncoso and Cory Wade; infielders Josh Bell, Ivan DeJesus Jr., Blake DeWitt, Chin-Lung Hu, Andy LaRoche, Josh Paul; catcher Lucas May and outfielders Delwyn Young and Xavier Paul.
Carlos Alvarez is the only one not on the True Blue top 30 prospect list. I remember his stellar K/BB ratio as a 20 year old in the Sally league and his subsequent promotion to AA during the same year. However the last two years he had regressed so seeing him on the list of prospects taking part in this minicamp was a bit of surprise. UpdateGurnick made a mistake and Carlos Alvarez was not at the camp as he was released this past winter. Thanks to Canuck/El Lay Dav/mjw101 for clearing this up.
Would be cool if they had the practice open to the public for a day.
