- RHP Tyler Beede, who went unsigned after being selected in the first round by the Toronto Blue Jays, made his debut for Vanderbilt University. Things didnt go too well in his first outing, reports NESN's Brian Roch.
- Baseball America also published a roundup from college ball over the weekend, which reports the Commodores made four errors behind Beede, so that certainly didnt help his cause.
- The New York Yankees acquired two prospects from the Pittsburgh Pirates for RHP A.J. Burnett, reports MiLB's Andrew Pentis.
- Tim Williams from PiratesProspects.com recommends some things to check out during Pirates Spring Training, especially those of you interested in Pirate City, the minor league camp.
