Forgotten Prospects

Postby oddmanout7 » Wed Nov 26, 2008 1:09 am

Mark Rogers (MIL - SP)
Rogers, who turns 23 in January, has not pitched in a baseball game since July 2006 when he injured his right shoulder while playing for the Brevard County Manatees in the Class A Florida State League.

The following January, he underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum and tighten a loose ligament.

Last June, Rogers underwent arthroscopic procedures to remove scar tissue that developed after the earlier surgery.

He can reach the high 90s with his fastball. In 2006 in A+ ball he K'd 96 in 71ip with 53BB. He certainly has upside, but I think this next season will be very telling for the once top prospect.

Eric Campbell (ATL - 3B)
Last season repeating A+ ball he hit .255/.362/.479 with 19HR and 4SB as a 22 year old. That is a disappointment from what was supposed to be his break out season in 2006 .294/.333/.514 with 22HR and 18SB as 20year old in A ball. I am not sure what to expect from the guy who was once touted as Chippers replacement.

Cesar Carrillo (SD - SP)

Cesar Carrillo fanned six of the seven hitters he faced for the Saguaros of the AFL on Tuesday.
The other had a single. Carrillo, who came back from Tommy John surgery in June, has a 4.00 ERA and a 12/3 K/BB ratio in nine innings. The Padres are expected to add him to their 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

I know that he had a mid 90s fastball before the surgery. What do you guys see from him?

Even before the surgery most scouts and analysts seemed to think Carillo was more of a 3rd starter type than a stud (his secondary offerings were deemed too inconsistent). I think a middle of the rotation starter for a decent team will be his ceiling at this point.

The way the Padres are going though he might be pitching in their season opener in 2010. :-b
He once hit a ball between my legs so hard that my center-fielder caught it on the fly backing up against the wall.

If Satch (Paige) and I were pitching on the same team, we would clinch the pennant by July fourth and go fishing until World Series time.
