Top prospect transaction wire

We get a regular report emailed to us when something happens with one of the 600 players on Prospect Watch in pro ball — Top 100 or team Top 20. It helps us know when we need to update the information on there.

Obviously, we can’t update a player’s blurb with every DL move, saving it for the more serious injuries, big promotions, etc. We’ve been having a discussion about what to do with the information otherwise. There’s no clear place to put it, but it’s also good information we’d like to share with everyone. So, for the time being, I’m going to try and post it here whenever possible. Maybe it’ll be a weekly item (Transaction Tuesday — I always do like alliteration).  Here’s some of the most recent goings on with the top prospects in the game. I’m focusing on the Minor League ones, figuring most see when guys get called up to the big leagues.

Injuries

Nick Maronde, LHP, Angels — DL (strained lat). No. 6 on Angels’ Top 20
Khris Davis, OF, Brewers — DL (leg injury). No. 13 on Brewers’ Top 20

Promotions/Demotions

Jake Petricka, RHP, White Sox — Promoted from Winston-Salem (Class A Adv) to Birmingham (AA). No. 5 on White Sox’s Top 20
Nestor Molina, RHP, White Sox — Promoted from Birmingham (AA) to Charlotte (AAA). No. 2 on White Sox’s Top 20.
Stephen Pryor, RHP, Mariners — Promoted from Jackson (AA) to Tacoma (AAA). No. 9 on Mariners’ Top 20.
Joe Benson, OF, Twins — Demoted from Rochester (AAA) to New Britain (AA). No. 5 on Twins’ Top 20.

That’s just a smattering… Over the course of the week, there’s much more and I’ll start compiling them and providing more info… If people have ideas or suggestions for this, please fire away.

I have a suggestion… find an experienced team blogger for each team and let them feed a central database for a comprehensive weekly movement report.

I’ll take the Mets :)

Mr. Mayo
In the AL…who do you think might get called up soon to the majors?
Thank You
Luke

Stay tuned for a story on that very subject on MLB.com this Wednesday.

Maybe a small preview for your loyal readers so we get a jump on others who don’t read your blog?

Wait, there are others who don’t read my blog?
