Last Night on the Farm - 6/19/13
Some news on the minor league front: pitcher Luis Mateo underwent Tommy John Surgery last week, so he’ll be on the shelf for a while after being rated very highly (perhaps too highly) on many top prospect lists over the winter. Also, Jim Fuller was promoted to AA, in what should be the first of many promotions in the days and weeks to come.
