One thing that stood out to me about the Bradenton hitters was that there were no promotions. The Opening Day roster was largely the same as the roster at the end of the season. The only player to move up to AA was Travis Scott, who only made a brief appearance in Bradenton, and was more an organizational catcher. You could also add Aaron Baker to that list, although he didn't get promoted to AA until after he was traded. A big reason for this is that Bradenton had a lot of young starters who were on a full season track, rather than older guys who could have moved up after half a season. Here is the rundown of how everyone at the level did this season, broken down by age group.
