VP of Baseball Ops Mark Newman visited the Double-A Trenton squad last night, and beat writer extraordinaires Josh Norris and Mike Ashmore spoke to him at length about a variety of topics. You can read the entire thing right here.
In addition to discussing guys like RHP Dellin Betances, LHP Vidal Nuno, and RHP Brett Marshall, Newman also spoke about all of the injuries the farm system has suffered this year. Not so much the specific injuries, but how the organization deals with them and continually tries to improve their rehab and injury prevention methods. I’ve been saying for a while now that durability is the latest market inefficiency — it’s not just about having the best players, it’s about having the best players on the field for the majority of the time. Anyway, check out the interview, it’s a must read.
