Hot Links

A few things not really worthy of a separate post:

*Cesar Izturis would have received $100,000 by today (Tuesday) if he wasn't on the 25-Man roster. Since he wouldn't go to the minors, the Astros released him.

*Rule 5 pick Ravel Santana still isn't in camp because of visa issues in the Dominican Republic.

*From the previous link, it looks as though Correa and Appel will open the season in Lancaster, while Foltynewicz looks to be a lock for the OKC rotation.

*Here's a fun article from the Denver Post's Troy Renck on Rockies spring training co-MVP Brandon Barnes.
