Jays send 5 to minor league campNews: Blue Jays right-hander Dirk Hayhurst, infielders Brad Emaus, Scott Campbell and Russ Adams, and outfielder Jason Lane were returned to minor league camp on Saturday. Analysis: Hayhurst was never really a prospect and since he's no longer in camp with the Jays, he's no longer a candidate to start the year with the big club and he's not worth anything in Fantasy. The same goes with the rest of these players.
Jays sort out their camp rosterNews: The Blue Jays invited OF Buck Coats, RP Bill Murphy, RP Davis Romero, OF Adam Loewen, 1B Brian Dopirak, OF Jason Lane, OF Wayne Lydon, SS Angel Sanchez, 2B Bradley Emaus, 1B David Cooper, 2B Scott Campbell, SS Russ Adams, C Curtis Thigpen, C Brian Jeroloman, C J.P. Arencibia, C Kyle Phillips, RP Marty McLeary, RP Rick Bauer, LHP Brad Mills and LHP Brett Cecil to spring training. Also, they sent LHP Brian Burres and LHP Reid Santos outright to Triple-A Las Vegas. Analysis: Arencibia is one of the best catching prospects in baseball -- one with elite power potential at the position -- while Cecil is a top-notch pitching prospect. All of these players, save for Thigpen, who could make the team as the backup catcher, are nothing more than organizational depth at this point. Consider the prospects in long-term keeper and deeper AL-only formats, while the rest of the players can be ignored in Fantasy right now.
World Futures Game team announcedNews: The following players were selected to the World team for the Futures Game: RHP Phillippe Aumont, SEA; RHP Carlos Carrasco, PHI; RHP Jesus Delgado, FLA; LHP Jaime Garcia, STL; RHP Shairon Martis, WAS; RHP Eduardo Morlan, TB; RHP Julio Pimentel, KC; RHP Henry A. Rodriguez, OAK; RHP Hector Rondon, CLE; LHP Polin Trinidad, HOU; C Welington Castillo, CHC; C Jesus Montero, NYY; SS Elvis Andrus, TEX; 2B Emilio Bonifacio, ARI; 2B Scott Campbell, TOR; SS Ivan De Jesus, LAD; 3B Juan Francisco, CIN; 3B Luke Hughes, MIN; C/1B Max Ramirez, TEX; 1B Angel Villalona, SF; OF Gorkys Hernandez, ATL; OF Che-Hsuan Lin, BOS; OF Fernando Martinez, NYM; OF Gerardo Parra, ARI; OF Wilkin Ramirez, DET. Analysis: The Futures Game is July 13 at Yankee Stadium, two days before the All-Star Game. It can be just the springboard a top prospect needs to get a promotion, so consider these guys fliers to take in any long-term keeper league they are available.
