The Tigers have been praised for their ability to stockpile and retain superb young pitching. Jeremy Bonderman will be in the rotation through at least 2010.

uan Uribe has no assurances with the White Sox beyond this season, and further jeopardizing his job security is an intriguing crop of shortstop prospects rising through the system.

Yet that horrific moment ultimately led to a second career beginning right now: Padres minor league pitcher. Brannan, 22, still has only four fingers on his left hand but will carry 40 times the normal life experience inside his new uniform. I spoke with the righthander about getting signed by the Padres, his experience in Iraq, and playing Wiffle ball in the desert with buddies who never came home.
