Prospects / Minors: November 2008 Archives

Minor League Free Agents
Baseball America ran a list of the players that were declared minor league free agents last week. Here was the list of Cubs:

RHP: Mike Burns (AAA), Hector Carrasco (AAA), Adam Harben (AAA), Billy Petrick (AAA)
LHP: Carmen Pignatiello (AAA), Jason Stanford (AAA)
1B: Matt Craig (AAA)
2B: Robinson Chirinos (Hi A), Bobby Scales (AAA)
SS: Andres Blanco (AAA), Luis Figueroa (AAA)
OF: Doug Deeds (AA), Jason Dubois (AAA), Josh Kroeger (AAA), Andres Torres (AAA)

*of these prospects, I'd like to see the Cubs re-sign Petrick, Craig, Deeds, Dubois, and Torres.
***in my opinion, Kroeger should be added to the 40-man ASAP
