Minor-league rosters

There were a full range of emotions. Some players shook hands soon after they had been released without knowing if they'd see those friends again. Some were happy at unexpected promotions. Some sad that they didn't land as high as they hoped.

I know Josh Parker and Graig Merritt were released, but I'm not sure after that. I think I heard someone say there were about 15 releases total.

I'll try to cross-check the spring roster with the travel lists Monday, after I recover from the 500-mile drive home.

Thanks for reading and thanks for asking.

I haven't seen anything about the Minor League Umpires being on strike and this weeks games being called by high school umpires.

I heard they threatened to blacklist any college umpires who might want to move up to minors if they applied to call while the strike was on.
