Re: MLB Offseason 2013-2014

I don't think the high value prospects are going to spend that much time in the minors compared to the days of old. The Harper's and Strasburg's of the world will play enough minor league baseball to learn the team system and get plugged in quickly as long as there is room. Triple A is no longer the proving ground for the high end draft picks. Triple A is pretty much a holding pen for veteren players trying to make one last run and those back end prospects that will most likely scrap away for the remainder of their careers hoping to join the parent team as a fill in for an injured player or as a late season roster addition. A good season in Double A can pretty much get you that spring training invitation and eventually a roster spot.
Searching for something, a million miles and a ways to go.
