Trainer - TBA (Oakland)?!?!
In the last couple of AFL Seasons, Andre Ethier and Travis Buck have made the immediate jump from AFL to the MLB. Jay Marshall is going to Phoenix... Not a huge surprise, but interesting nonetheless. I'm kind of surprised to see that James Simmons is going to the AFL for more work. I thought the A's might want to give his arm some time off after the College Season + Midland... but, I guess they like what they see in Simmons.
I'm midly surpised that guys like Trevor Cahill, Henry Alberto Rodriguez, Javier Herrera, Gregorio Petit, Andrew Bailey, Jermaine Mitchell, and Corey Brown didn't get the nod over some of these guys.
I really like the fact the Oakland hasn't determined who to send to Arizona to be the Team Trainer. I hope that's a good sign (crosses fingers)
