Spring Training Recap: Day Eleven

The Grapefruit and Cactus League seasons are underway, which means plenty of prospects are getting their chance to impress. Many of these prospects have played on the Thunder and in the Eastern League, or will do so in 2010. I'm going to be rounding up the best performances on this blog and posting them for all to follow.

A couple of reminders:

1. I'll be in Tampa for spring training from March 31-April 4. While there, I'll be writing, blogging, tweeting, taking pictures and recording video. I'll try to get as much information as I can about what the final roster will look like before the Thunder take the field against Erie on April 8.

2. I will host my second Web chat of the spring, on this very blog, tomorrow at 1 p.m. I'll be taking questions about the Thunder, the Eastern League and all of Minor League Baseball. Mark it down.

Former Thunder category:

The Thunder's leader Saturday was Alfredo Aceves, who continued his strong spring with four innings of one run ball. The sexy names might be Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain, but Aceves is making it harder and harder for Joe Girardi not to give him strong consideration.

Other former Trentonites seeing action were:
Kevin Russo: 0-for-1
Jorge Vazquez: 0-for-1
Francisco Cervelli: 2-for-3
Jose Gil: 0-for-1
Eduardo Nunez: 0-for-2
Ramiro Pena: 0-for-3
Jose Tabata (PIT): 1-for-3
Anthony Claggett (PIT): .2 IP, 0 ER, BB
Eric Hacker (SF): 2 IP, 3 H, ER, 2 BBs, 3 Ks
Zach Kroenke (ARI): IP, 0 ER
