Report from the Fort


Minor League Spring Training Notes: 2006 Dominican signees Engel Beltre and Oscar Tejeda (pictured) look like they could be the real deal, both very athletic with sweet swings - just don't call them Angel or Moises ... Ryan Phillips injured his shoulder pitching in Hawaii Winter Baseball, is rehabbing and will be throwing off a mound again soon ... Rob Henkel resigned to a minor league deal and could grap a spot in Pawtucket's bullpen ... Players who won't be back in 2007 include Marc Deschnes, Tyler Minges, David Lee, Kevin Frederick, Kevin Jarvis, and Jason Richardson ... Both Willy Mota and Alberto Gil were converted to pitchers ... Justin Masterson recently went four innings in a AA Spring game, mixing in his full arsenal very well ... Tony Granadillo is being tried out at 2B and 3B, but hopes to stick at 3B ... Dominican prospect OF Jose Jose was in camp for a look - he cannot be signed until July under MLB rules; Lancaster's pitching staff might be fun to watch to start the 2007, possibly including top prospects Michael Bowden, Justin Masterson, Kris Johnson, Daniel Bard, and Mike Rozier.
