The Venezuelan, Dominican Summer Leagues, and Florida State League were not in play on Sunday, so it was easy to crush the boxscores this afternoon. With the light schedule, Ive added some bonus picks for each level, including an extra Relief Pitcher. This also afforded me the opportunity to begin looking at the upcoming All-Star schedules. The HiA Florida State League will be the first out of the gate on June 20th and released their roster this morning. I’ll being breaking down those pitchers that were elected, by introducing which UTR pitchers are on the roster.
