    Brian, I probably don’t say this is a often as I should but thanks for all of the content. This site is second to none when it comes to providing information about every aspect of the organization. We may not always agree about certain things but there is a reason I am a member here.

    Much appreciated. If we all agreed about everything, it would be a boring place. Intelligent discussion is the target.

    Thank you for your business!

    Just curious Brian, your new roster matrix lists 20 new international signings, but your 30 new organizational players lists only 14. What am I missing?

    The focus of the article is those signed since the end of the 2018 season. That included 14 international players. The other 10 internationals had been signed earlier – between July 2nd and then.

    Total international sign since July 2nd = 24
    Of those, four began play right away in 2018
    The remaining 20 are on the matrix as 2019 signs

    Hope that clears it up, but if not, ask more.

    Thanks for this detailed update as it’s very helpful to us ‘newbies’. Much appreciated and gives me something up to the minute to go by when down at Spring Training next week.

    Not sure if you’ve seen this, Brian, but the Cardinals have singed an 18 year old RHP from Colombia, William Miranda.

    I missed this, but when did Starlin Balbuena move to pitching?

    I believe Balbuena switched last Spring

    Thanks Brian, that clears it up. I thought it had to be something like that.

    BHC Balbuena moved to the mound last season. He only pitched one inning rather unsuccessfully at that.

    Peoria has a preliminary roster for opening day. Gorman is returning and Ivan Herrera gets a promotion to full season.

    If TCN subscribers did not stop by the Members Forum this weekend, you missed out on early roster info for all four full-season affiliates and a lot more news. (Well, actually, it is all still there!)

    Derek Shore’s report from Springfield Media Day will be posted later this afternoon for all readers.

    The pitching might be average-ish, but the offense could be quite good for Springfield. It would be nice to see Montero and Carlson turn it on in the hitter-friendly league.

    The bullpen should be better, which was a major problem in 2018. Almost all of the offense is new to the level so it will worth watching how quickly they can adapt to the higher league.

    Make sure you check the TCN team roster pages to get the latest on who is where. The Roster Matrix will be updated when I figure out where everyone is.

    The reason for the 26 guys listed on the above link I shared was because Dennis Ortiz is on the IL.

    Brian, is there a way we can sort the rosters by position instead of by last name?

    Sometimes it is handy to look at pitchers, catchers, infielders, and outfielders to see who is in each group.
