Tyler O’Neill could probably pick this kid up and lift him over his head with one hand. I can’t remember when the Cardinals had a pitcher who came up through the DSL, and made it onto their 40-Man roster. It’s still cool to think that this kid could possibly become a star. You never know………October 4, 2019 at 9:03 am #110120
You mean other than Carlos Martinez?
Before that, it may be back to Jorge Rondon and Eduardo Sanchez to find academy pitchers who reached MLB.October 4, 2019 at 3:23 pm #110180
I kind of remember when they signed CMart. But I never thought about where he went after that.
Here’s a nice article from 2011 by Derrick Goold. I wonder if it will still be available online a hundred years from now. I bet it will.October 4, 2019 at 3:49 pm #110189
I think I was Martinez’ first US interviewer. It was his first spring camp in Jupiter, March 2011. Johnny Rodriguez translated.
In May 2012, when Carlos was in Palm Beach, I sat in on his English class.October 5, 2019 at 8:03 am #110282October 5, 2019 at 1:30 pm #110310

Some interesting choices for overall player and pitcher of the year. My picks would not have a ton of homers, or wins or saves,October 5, 2019 at 7:42 pm #110322
I would think that it doesn’t cost more than $1M to operate both DSL teams, and maybe a little more for the rest of the work they do in Latin America. There are 10 prospects in the TCN top 30 that have come through the DSL. Seven were signed first by the Cardinals. Because of the Cardinals’ rather strong presence in the DSL and Latin America, the 3 who were acquired from another team were no doubt scouted well. You’d have to say that the Cardianls’ presence in Latin America is working well for the organization. It’s pretty evident that it would be tough for any MLB team to survive without this pipeline. Hopefully, we’ll get an elite prospect out of this eventually.

Have the Peoria and Palm Beach starting pitcher winners been determined? Usually these announcements are rolled out in order.October 9, 2019 at 9:35 am #110855
No, Peoria and Palm Beach Starting Pitchers have not been announced. They should be coming in the next two days. I have to adjust the schedule on the fly when a writer is late. Fortunately, others are early so we can stay on track, disclosing one winner each day.
Here is the link to the master article that shows all the winners and the article schedule. It is linked at the bottom of each of the individual articles and is free to all. It is also among the top six or so articles on the home page during the roll out.October 10, 2019 at 9:49 am #111088October 11, 2019 at 11:39 am #111192October 12, 2019 at 10:46 am #111369October 13, 2019 at 9:20 am #111482October 14, 2019 at 9:09 am #111534October 15, 2019 at 8:52 am #111674October 16, 2019 at 8:41 am #111876
