A’s major leaguers may have a couple of weeks’ worth of spring games under their belts. But A’s minor leaguers just began their official spring schedule of competitive games on Monday. And with the beginning of that schedule, the players in the minor league camp have all been assigned to teams that will spend the spring playing their counterparts from other organizations.
Keep in mind that these assignments don’t reflect where players will actually be assigned once the season starts. There are currently 47 players in the A’s major league camp so, obviously, a large number of those players will end up filling out the roster for Sacramento or one of the other affiliates. And once all those other players get their assignments, a great many of the players listed below will end up being bumped down a notch or two. But at least this helps give some perspective on where players fall within the overall organizational structure. And if you come to spring training in Arizona, you should definitely take the opportunity to visit the A’s minor league complex at Papago Park and see some of these talented young players in action!
