Spring Training Recap: Day Five

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 first Web chat of the spring, on this very blog, on Wednesday, March 10, 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 Sunday was Jesus Montero, who came up with a pinch-hit double off of Twins reliever Jesse Crain in yet another lopsided Yankees loss (not that they mean anything, but sheesh).
