Vol. 12, No. 31, October 16, 2014

We all know that not every player who pulls on a baseball uniform is going to be rewarded with an opportunity to play in the major leagues. Mark Minicozzi has been in this category so far, but his organization is heaping praise on him. The Pennsylvania native will be 32 next season, but the utilityman had another strong season in the San Francisco farm system, hitting .306, which was second-best in the organization.
