Mar 14 2053: Prattville News: Training Update 1 - by NotGood88 on December 17th, 2021

Well, Training Update 1 has finally happened, and there is much to say. First off, there were some coaching moves. Manager Elwood Miller hired 3rd base coach Jamie Neil, bench coach Peter McAllister, and 1st base coach Billy Grassi, in hopes of getting the team closer to getting promoted.

In terms of off-season player development, pitcher Mateo De La Cruz popped to 14 POT and then back to 13, elite prospect pitcher Hunter Childs went to 13 POT, and multi-positional player J.D. Houck followed suit. The latter two saw increases in SI this training update as well. Meanwhile, the team’s ace of 7 years, Vincent De Smet, lost 6 SI and will be a reliever this year, allowing 29 year old stud Benito Mendoza to be the Opening Day starter.

During spring training, the Black Cats sit at 7-14 as they try to develop minor leaguers. While most of them suck, Childs, underdeveloped pitcher Pete Whitemore, who gained 4 SI, 3B/C prospect Spencer Kelley, speedster Jesse Bond, and future ace Miguel Casas, who addd 3 SI to his build, have done surprisingly well.

The team has made a flurry of moves, acquiring minor leaguer Elián Saldívar, major leaguer Kelvin Hunt, starting CF Kraig Hemphill, starting RF Cole Nolan, Corey Guest, who has a career BAA of .193, LHS Steve Bradford, extra bullpen arm Keith Nelson, potential future starter Victor Castillo, and backup OF/C Tyler Cramer, who probably won’t last long.

Training Update 1 was a success, with much SI being gained. Vance Hess relearned SS, Houck mastered it, and homegrowns Genaro Lira, Norman Gardener (+2 SI), Korey Abel (+1 SI), and Charley Ritter were all promoted to AAA, AAA, AA, and A, respectively. But the big highlight was the Round 1 selection, outfielder Kelly Trout, who immediately drew comparisons to another outfielder named Trout. He is the 6th New Yorker on our club, joining top prospect Rodger Dobbs, All Star Brendan Flangan, Victor Castillo, everyone’s favorite, Billy Bob Yeager, and bullpen star Laurence Barbee. Seems like good company.

All right, that’s that, thanks for reading, and I’ll see y’all next week!
