I detailed the prospects and non-roster invitees in Braves camp this spring in my previous post. Considering where the Braves are in their rebuild, that's the most important aspect of this year's spring training. This part, going over other 40-man players, is more about filling out the 25-man roster and possibly finding a player or two who could be serviceable in the future.
I wrote up Cross Creek catcher Luis Campusano last season when he was a sophomore. At the time, I saw the makings of what should easily become the best player in the Augusta area. Aside from South Aiken's Owen Griffith, Campusano is already there as a junior right now.
Today marks the beginning of spring training games, which is exciting even if only to view a fresh box score at the end of the day. Spring games are obviously meaningless, but there are reasons to watch and pay attention. I'll offer some reasons over the next couple blog posts.
