Yeah, www.milb.com confirms this and they have the rosters up...

seems like they are all going there for different reasons:

Stinny will continue to develop as a starter...

Carson will look for what he has misplaced....

Kai is now considered the top Mets catching prospect and would be a killer platoon with Thole in 2012...

and "Spin" is listed as a shortstop with no second basemen on the roster...

Agreed. Stinson's had a breakout season and solid Arizona league could increase his value. In my opinion, Carson just wasn't ready for AA and his #'s have shown it. Kai is starting to make a real name for himself and this would be the place to do it. I also noticed Jordany is listed as a SS, but as everyone said, he's a great athlete and I'm sure he can play both SS/2B with no issues.

BTW, it took me about an hour to post that because I just couldn't get the pictures and text to line up properly. lol

My obsessive/compulsive nature kicked in and I needed things to look just right. This was the closest I could get without driving myself nuts. Trial and error about 15 times, but once you post it, it never really looks like the preview.

Sorry Mack, I'll figure it out eventually. :-)
