Carlos Tocci, image- Jay Floyd Just as the big league postseason is heating up, minor league players have gotten action rolling in the international off-season leagues, with top outfield prospect Carlos Tocci and promising backstop Gabriel Lino leading the way in the Venezuelan Winter League. With Aragua on Wednesday, the 20-year-old Tocci went 3-for-6 with a stolen base.  All of...

From the bottom of the developmental ranks to the upper levels here’s all the latest this week… At the Class A level for the Lakewood BlueClaws, as I reported on Twitter on Thursday, infielder Tim Zier is out for the year after undergoing season-ending left knee surgery on Monday.  The San Diego State product was injured during pre-game fundamentals/infield work recently.  Zier,...

Phillies Land Gabriel Lino in Thome Trade

It’s not often I head to the park having never heard of a catcher only to leave believing he was a future big leaguer. The last time it happened was in 2010 After seeing Giants Hector Sanchez gun down an opposing runner at second base with a 1.93 second rocket from his knees and swing the bat from both sides of the plate. More recently, Gabriel Lino left a similar impression in April...

Jim Thome Traded to Baltimore for Single-A Players Gabriel Lino and Kyle Simon

Around the eighth inning of today's ballgame in Miami, rumors began swirling of Jim Thome headed to Baltimore in a trade.

In 2011, a few sleeper favorites included Rangers Christian...
