    Although some of the players below are young, and may not make full season ball next year, the possibilities are exciting for us fans:

    C-Soto, Herrera, Wilson, Purcell
    1B-Woodall, Gomez, Cedeno, Whalen
    2B-Dunn, Whalen??, Williams
    SS-Perez
    3B-Gorman
    OF-Cedeno, Woodall, Machado, Nunez, Torres, Ynfante

    Throw in that one will DH, and the potential in that lineup is off the charts. This reminds me of when Peoria had a rotation of Woodford, Helsley, Gonzalez, Fernandez, etc.

    Machado-CF
    Torres-LF
    Cedeno-DH
    Gorman-3B
    Nunez-RF
    Woodall-1B
    Soto-C
    Dunn-2B
    Perez-SS

    I moved Nunez to RF to get his bat in the lineup, although he likely will stick at 3rd in the GCL probably. in which case Ynfante may be the 3rd outfielder.

    The above lineup has 50+ home runs in short season ball.

    Probably need to threw Stanley Espinal in as First base/DH option and Figuera in the middle infield.

    Agree should have a lot of interesting position prospects to monitor in Peoria.

    This Torres received in the Mercado trade is doing quite well in the GCL at a very young age. Will be impressive if he can make the jump to Peoria.

    At SC, Woodall has been playing RF with Whalen at 1B. Woodall hasn’t figured out the NYPL yet.

    I doubt Nunez is at Peoria to start the season though I would love to see it (Just not the Cardinal’s way.) Soler (who will be just 19 next season) might start there but it also seems unlikely.

    Gorman could actually start at Palm Beach depending on how he finishes this year and performs in the Spring.

    Not sure Luken Baker starts the season at Palm Beach which means he’s still in Peoria.

    Gorman could be at Palm Beach to make room for Montero.

    Some of the promotions look a little agressive. Montero will probably be at Sprngfield if not at he beginning of the season then by mid-season. No way Baker is at Peoria next year. At least at Palm Beach if not Springfield.

    Best I can tell Nunez is 6 plate appearances short of being qualified for the batting title. If he plays every game for the rest of the year he will probably fall a couple of plate appearances short. However, given the practice of adding AB’s without hits up to the qualifying number to determine the batting title, Nunez should easily win and should still finish over .400.

    The DSL wraps this week I believe. I would love to see Nunez sent to the US for the last 2 weeks of the NYPL (it runs the latest) or maybe the GCL since they will have a couple of playoff games.

    Not sure what DSL rules are, but Oscar Taveras won a batting title in that fashion.

    That is correct. Taveras won the 2011 Midwest League batting title with 347 plate appearances even though he had to take an 0-for-31 to reach the minimum.

    With guys being moved around so much, it is not that rare. Just last season, Evan Mendoza had a similar situation to win the batting crown in the NY-Penn League, in his case because he had been promoted to Peoria before reaching the at-bat minimum.

    I hope Gorman does well and gets a midseason promotion. That would open the door for Nunez to play 3rd after him.
