Fort Report: Major league roster set as Spring Training comes to an end

Here are Thursday's Minor League Notes:
  • The SoxProspects scouting team recently wrapped up their annual scouting trip to Fort Myers last week. The team has been hard at work providing content on both the @SoxProspects twitter page as well as their personal accounts. Check out @SPChrisHatfield, @MikeAndrewsSP, @IanCundall, and @JamesDunneSP for loads of video content and observations from the back fields.
  • Spring Training came to an end this week, and the final major league roster has been set in preparation for the Red Sox opening series against the Mariners. Right-handed reliever Colten Brewer, SoxProspects.com's 28th ranked prospect, has earned a place with the big league club out of camp. Joining Brewer in the majors is 23rd-ranked first baseman, Sam Travis (pictured). Travis will take the spot of the injured Steve Pearce, who will begin the season on the IL with a calf strain.

Introducing Patreon Game Updates

Here at SoxProspects, we are always trying to think of new ways that we can bring content to our readers—and to listeners of our podcast. In our most recent edition of the SoxProspects Podcast, we announced our newest feature: Patreon Game Updates.

We'll be introducing this feature next week as a pilot program. The series will feature short audio recaps of games scouted in person by staff members, and it will be exclusive to our Patrons on Patreon.com who pledge $2 per episode and up. As we described on the most recent episode of the show, these short clips will give us the opportunity to provide our Patrons with detailed updates that expand beyond what we feature on the podcast itself. 

For example, on a given night, Chris might go deep into the starting pitcher's pitch count, what was working, what wasn't, details from at-bats, and the like. Or Ian might get into more details on at-bats by a certain hitter or hitters that night, analyzing more minutiae than we have time to do on the regular show.
