2010 Sea Dogs Loaded with Prospects

The new season is upon us, and the Portland Sea Dogs are once again stocked with many of Boston's top minor leaguers. Top prospects returning for another go-round, at least to start the year, are first baseman Lars Anderson and outfielder Ryan Kalish. Joining them are highly-touted pitcher Casey Kelly and Cuban import shortstop Jose Iglesias. This exciting core will be complemented by lesser prospects like Yamaico Navarro (moving to third base to accomodate Iglesias), and starting pitchers Steven Fife and Felix Doubront, among others.

The beginning of the season should be a fun time to watch the Sea Dogs. If guys like Anderson, Kalish or Doubront start off strong, they will probably be moved up to AAA by mid-season, but the new arrivals will likely be in town all season.
