Farmers Only Quick Hits

Just a few minor league hits to get this offseason started:

  • Jamie Ramsey has an update with good news about one of the minor acquisitions of last year's offseason, Jose Arredondo:

RHP Jose Arredondo, who is recovering from "Tommy John Surgery" (2/2/10), gave up a run in 1.0 inning of work (1h, 1bbb, 1k).  He threw 24 pitches, 12 for strikes and dialed up the radar gun to 93mph.

     Good signs so far.


  • It's finally official: the Reds new Class A-Advanced affiliate is the Bakersfield Blaze.  The Blaze has hosted such prestigious players as Josh Hamilton, Mike Piazza, and Edinson Volquez.  I think I speak for both of us here at Farmers Only when we say "bleh".  I don't think anyone's really looking forward to reporting on games that start at 11PM ET.
  • Winter ball and AFL rosters are finally set.  Here's where our guys are playing:
Arizona Fall League

Still waiting for the Dominican and Puerto Rican leagues to start, but that should be enough to keep us occupied for a bit.
