Minor League Free Agent All-Star Team

Every winter general managers around baseball scour the free agent pool for what they believe might be a diamond in the rough or just cheap organizational depth. I used Cot's Baseball Contracts to handpick a 25-man roster of players that were signed to minor league contracts for the 2013 season. I think they would have outscored the Marlins and outpitched the Astros. Check it out...

Catcher:
  • Yorvit Torrealba/COL .240/.580, 61 G, 10 R, 8 DBL, 16 RBI, -0.5 WAR
  • Humberto Quintero/PHI/SEA .237/.642, 46 G, 8 R, 5 DBL, 4 HR, 13 RBI, 0.6 WAR

Lineup:
1. JB Shuck/CF
2. Josh Satin/1B
3. Marlon Byrd/RF
4. Ryan Raburn/LF
5. Jeff Baker/DH
6. Donnie Murphy/3B
7. Ed Lucas/2B
8. Munenori Kawasaki/SS
9. Humberto Quintero/C

Notes:
This team is extremely versatile, with almost every infielder being able to play multiple positions (Overbay being the exception).  The bullpen would have been one of the best in MLB in 2013.

Imagine that move to freedom and see the walls come a tumblin closeby down.Paid tryouts worked in little league.Colleges got fired with time verses pros who would have been without them.Face to face about tryouts or imagine too many things are otherwise money solveable.

thirteen strikes in a row from the mound with fastest pitch ever thrown is not just minors.It's also not delayed colleges didnt scholarship.Changing occupations to remove time beaters denying.
