Hello and happy Wednesday.
On Tuesday, it was reported that Spring Training will start late for Minor Leaguers below the AAA level, presumably to limit potential coronavirus spread. Minor Leaguers at the AA level or below will begin their Spring Training only after the MLB and AAA players have finished theirs.
This will impact every team, and that includes the San Francisco Giants, who have a lot of prospects who could start 2021 at either AA or AAA. This news might force the Giants to put many of them at the higher level, and get them on the field sooner.
The Giants have a couple of good prospects who might have been on the AA/AAA bubble after getting limited time in AA in 2019. Would think this pushes them to AAA. Ramos would be the biggest name. https://t.co/9AfRsYI7gj— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) January 5, 2021
