Two Pirates Make List Of Florida State League Top Prospects

Baseball America has released its list of top Florida State League prospects, and two Pirates made the list - catcher Tony Sanchez at No. 6, and reliever Diego Moreno at No. 16. BA also notes that starter Bryan Morris would have made the list if he'd had enough starts to qualify. The only surprise omission was starter Jeff Locke, who pitched very well and continued to pitch well at Altoona. It was a rough year for the Bucs' Florida State League affiliate in Bradenton, which might have placed more players on the list (especially outfielder Starling Marte and infielder Brock Holt) if the team had not been decimated by injuries.
