Expansion Draft Coverage: I’m reaching out to every team in the Atlantic League to try to get the names of the players who they’ll be losing to the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs tomorrow as quick as I can. Hopefully I’ll be able to get the whole list at some point tomorrow.
Each team can protect 13 players, and that list can include players that finished the year with the team or players who played at one point with the team but left. Every team will lose one player, but no more than that.
More Than A Feeling: Congratulations to long-time Atlantic Leaguer D.J. Boston, who according to a source has been signed by the Houston Astros organization to become a coach of their rookie ball team. – Mike Ashmore
Fussell Re-Signs With Dodgers: Former Camden Riversharks arm Chris Fussell has re-signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers organization. The former Baltimore Orioles prospect split time last season with the Riversharks and the Dodgers’ Triple-A club in Las Vegas. He’ll likely be sent there to begin 2008. – Scott Stanchak
