My thoughts for Outfielders entering affiliated ball in 2021:
Memphis ~ Capel, Dean, Thomas, Williams, Toerner
Springfield ~ Hurst, Nootbaar, Pinder, Denton
Peoria ~ Cedeno, Plummer, Reichenborn, Vinsky, Machado
Palm Beach ~ Burleson, Fletcher, Fuller, Jew, Jones
GCL ~ Chamberlain, Koperniak, Garcia, Torres, RomeriFebruary 2, 2021 at 7:09 am #153178stlcard25ParticipantPaid - Annual
If Torres is not ready for full season ball this year, then I think we all need to give up on the idea of him ever making an impact for us. I’d think Romeri would be in Palm Beach as well.February 2, 2021 at 9:03 am #153187bccranParticipantFree
2020 – if you have Dean, Thomas, and Williams in Memphis, who’s your 5th outfielder on the big club?February 2, 2021 at 9:23 am #153200gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
25- you are correct about Torres. At a minimum he needs to start the season in Palm Beach and maybe Peoria.February 3, 2021 at 7:50 am #153293
25- you’re right about Torres and Romeri.
There will be some thinning of the herd by season’s start.February 4, 2021 at 2:29 am #153346grenadier1ParticipantPaid - Three Months
I think it’s STL or bust for Williams so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt with no options remaining I believe.
SPR Yepez/Pinder/Hurst/Denton/Plummer (I think more of a make or break move)
PB Fuller/Torres/Jones/Jew/Fletcher/Romeri (the last two might go back down once short season starts)
GCL Chamberlain/Koperniak/Moquette/Cruz/DeLosSantos/G.A. Rodriguez
Might need to look at College OF in the 1st 3 rounds this year.February 4, 2021 at 10:07 am #153380gscottarParticipantPaid - Annual
The fifth OF spot could be the most hotly contested spot in camp. As of now, assuming Yadi returns, the starting eight would be Molina, Goldy, Edman, Arenado, DeJong, Carlson, Bader, and Fowler.
The bench would be Knizner, Carp, O’Neill, and Sosa. That leaves one OF spot.
It seems to be a three person race between Thomas, Williams, and Dean unless there are more transactions between now and opening day. Of the three I would say Thomas is the best player but if Williams is out of options that could give him the edge.February 4, 2021 at 10:53 am #153394
The four FS teams generally carry 4 outfielders, but we’ll go with this for now.
MEMPHIS- Since Williams will get a shot at the 5th spot?
Thomas MLB experience
Dean MLB experience
Nootbaar 1st up
Reichenborn 1st up
VGarcia 1st up
ACruz 1st up
There will be room here for others but these 4 seem to be a lock.February 4, 2021 at 11:32 am #153401UncleDennyParticipantPaid - Annual

It’s hard to see how they are going to fit all of their OF’s in to the rotation. I could see a few getting farmed out to Independent League teams as I’ve heard mentioned on here. Otherwise there are going to be a lot of cuts.February 5, 2021 at 9:28 am #153529
Hey… aren’t we holding an extended spring training? We have to, right?
