MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo says to look for a junior AFL in 2010. With the closing of the Hawaiian Winter Baseball league after the 2008 season there was thought of creating a junior AFL for lower-level prospects. That didn’t happen, but each team is allowed to send 2 A-ball prospects to the AFL this year. The AFL Jr. should be an A-ball prospects league, while the AFL would remain a AA-ball and AAA-ball prospects league.

“My comment to (Peavy) was, ‘hopefully you getting hit in the elbow won’t get in the way of your next start,’ ” Cooper said Tuesday before the Sox took batting practice. “Where that is? I don’t want him to miss his next start. But we’ll see how it goes. If he has to take it another day, we’ll see. But that will unfold the next day, and see how he feels.”

Gordon Beckham did an interview on WSCR and 2 members of ‘The Outfield’ (Tony Lewis and John Spinks) joined in.
BTW, Gordon Beckham’s at-bat music is after the jump. Ozzie doesn’t approve.
This year’s Sox team are the Peoria Javelinas. The Full Roster is here. Besides Jordan Danks and Dayan Viciedo the other Sox participants are: Justin Cassel, Johnnie Lowe, Henry Mabee, Jacob Rasner, and C.J. Retherford.
