2013 Minor League Contract Team

It's that time of year when pitchers and catchers report to spring training to get some early workouts in and wait around for the rest of the team to show and go through stretching, drills, and games that are nothing more than glorified practice sessions. The players in this post were brought together to create a 25-man roster constructed from guys signed to minor league contracts. They are not guaranteed a MLB job, but they all want it, and if they remained together they could possibly outperform the Houston Astros. Check it out...

It appears Juan Cruz has backed out of his minor league deal with the Phillies.

Insert the Giants Ramon Ramirez in there instead or the Mariners Kameron Loe.
