Kudos All Around

Jon Heyman's latest column has an item about the Brewers and their depth at AA:

• One team in excellent position to trade for a starting pitcher should be the Brewers, who are stacked with prospects. Scouts have converged on their Double-A team at Huntsville, Ala., where several big-time prospects, including first baseman Matt LaPorta, catcher Salome Angel, third baseman Mat Gamel and shortstop Alcides Escobar, play. Kudos to scouting director Jack Zduriencik, whose picks also include Prince Fielder, Ryan Braun and many others who have made the Brewers a hot young contender.


Kudos also go out to Jon Heyman's editor for screwing up Angel Salome's name. And LaPorta is an outfielder. But hey - whatever, they're big-time prospects!

Laporta is also a first basemen but hey whatever

Matt said...

How many games has LaPorta played at 1B as a professional?

my bad i guess he has played just 2 games there this year, but I thought it was pretty much common knowledge that they are expecting LaPorta to replace Prince at first once he leaves
