Farm Futures: Failure to Develop

This article is part of our Collette Calls series.

Talent acquisition is one thing, developing talent is another.

I have him on my AL Tout Wars team right now as my middle infield because the pool was that thin and I had $1 left at the end game and luckily, I get to keep whatever stats he produces in Pittsburgh this season. He is not alone in Angels' failure, as his former org-mate Casey Kotchman could find himself designated for assignment when Evan Longoria returns later this week from his oblique injury.
