TRANSACTIONS

Honestly, I haven't been paying very close attention to the transaction pages since the season ended, but I think the only thing I missed was that Fresno OF Alex Presley elected free agency last week. [UPDATE: OF L.J. Hoes also elected free agency.]

FALL/WINTER LEAGUES

[Note: I will post player stats and results from time to time, but in the meantime, you can check this page for their cumulative stats.]

The Arizona Fall League will commence play on Tuesday. As a reminder, these Astros minor leaguers are playing for the Glendale Desert Dogs:
