Daily Farm Report: Weekend Edition - We play some other teams!

New, comments

Minor league camp got into full swing over the weekend, with multiple games against opponents from other camps on the backfields of multiple spring training complexes.

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

Editors' Note: Players, and especially pitchers, often play for multiple different spring training "farm teams" during these back field contests, depending on throw days, rest, and who management wants to see on a given day. Therefore, just because a player is on the field for Memphis, it doesn't mean he'll start the year there.

Notes:

#DidRowanWickHR: Yes

Kaminsky looked sharp in his first spring start as did Austin Gomber, who was on the outside looking in on the F-R Top 25 coming into the spring. Mr. Consistent starts the 2015 season like he ended the 2014 one: rapping out a base hit.
