Spring Training: The Pitchers
by Randall L. Whipkey

Sutton and four other young pitching prospects have been invited to spring training with the major league Summerset Swatters. Each of the five, including Will, spent last season with one of the Swatters' minor league clubs at either the AAA, AA, or A level; one pitched for Fredericksburg in the Battlefield League. Given the statistics about the rookies below, you should be able to field each player's full name, whether he is a righthander (RHP) or lefthander (LHP), and the farm team for which he played the 2000 season.

  1. Baseball America rates Ford, who isn't the one who spent last season with Hamilton, as the Swatters' best minor-league pitching prospect.
  2. Tom played the 2000 season for Main Island, which isn't an AAA league club.
  3. Andy and the rookie who pitched last year for Silver City, which isn't at the A level, both played college baseball for Stanford University.
  4. Wynn's chances of making the final major league roster are regarded as slim because he pitched below the top AAA level in the minors last year.
  5. Pete, a righthander, was with an A league team in 2000; he didn't play for the Hamilton farm club.
  6. John is one of the two lefthanders among the five prospects.
  7. RHP Palmer, who isn't Andy, is one of the two training camp invitees who pitched for AA teams last season.
  8. The five candidates for the Swatters' bullpen are Andy, Young, the one who played for Low Plains in 2000, one of the two prospects who spent last season with an AAA farm team, and a lefthanded pitcher.
