AAA should have some good prospects, obviously most notably Tyler Glasnow and Austin Meadows. We should see Meadows in Pittsburgh at some point this season. I'm guessing SS prospect Kevin Newman will be there as well, he seems to be the heir apparent to SS after Mercer. Elias Diaz will be the catcher, he'll be in Pittsburgh should any injuries occur. Jose Osuna had a good Spring at the plate, he'll be the 1B for Indy.

Nick Kingham will be in the rotation I believe, he'll be one to monitor.

I honestly like Diaz more than both catchers on big roster, only question is how arm will hold up after surgery. If it's as good as before ...,, put him in #1 spot, jmo

Got a remote but interesting thought. The Bucs have talked to the white sox a lot in regards to Quintana. But what if they unite the Frazier boys? They could get out of Kangs contract with his legal/visa issues, and unlike Quintana , Frazier is in the last year of a contract and won't command the ransome the sox wanted for Quintana

Somewhat surprising moves by the Buc's today.   Hutchison optioned to minors and Jared Hughes released.   Based on their spring performances these moves are not a complete surprise, but many had Hutchison penciled in as the fifth starter.
The easiest thing to do in sports is hustle.

Surprising moves, but welcomed surprises.

Tyler Glasnow named the fifth starter.

Very happy about that.

Very pleased with most of these last minute roster decisions. Now would just like to see them make Rivero the closer!
