Gabe Kapler And Positioning Prospects To Succeed

Here’s a dirty open secret about minor league ballplayers: They eat just horribly, many of them. Part of that’s simply just a reflection of age and culture.

What Happened To Gabe Kapler?

On August 16, the Rays needed a roster spot for Carlos Pena who was coming off the DL. Gabe Kapler walked into the trainer’s room and came out with a sprained ankle and a trip to the DL. Many (including us) assumed that “sprained ankle” was code for “sprained left roster spot,” and that he would return on September 1 when rosters expanded. But September 1 came and went and there...
