Hard to imagine Thanksgiving is just days away! Seems like almost yesterday that we were in Midland playing the final days of the season (Thanksgiving seemed REALLY far away at that point).
My Thanksgiving vacation begins Tuesday, Nov. 23, so the blog will be quiet for a few days until the following week. In the meantime, not sure if you saw that CF Engel Beltre and RHP Fabio Castillo have both been added to the Rangers 40-man roster. If you’ve watched Beltre play you can tell he’s got the tools to play in Arlington one day. He’s still raw but he sure is electric. No doubt he was one of the fastest players in the Texas League this past season. Once a Red Sox farm hand, I have to imagine Beltre will be the ‘Riders 2011 Opening Day center fielder.
Castillo didn’t have enough time in Frisco this year to really show enough of his stuff. He can reach 97 mph and was the Rangers representative in the Arizona Fall League’s Future Stars
game. At 21-years-old, Fabio appeared in only three games with Frisco in 2010.
Have a great Thanksgiving, we’ll catch up next week!
