Fernando Abad, LHP, who made three starts at Corpus Christi at the end of the 2009 season after spending the remainder of the season in the Lancaster bullpen, appears to be transitioning to a starting role this off-season. He has already made two starts in the Dominican Winter League.
A switch by Abad could leave the 2010 Corpus Christi starting rotation looking like this:
Jordan Lyles, RHP
Ross Seaton, RHP
Robert Bono, RHP
Leandro Cespedes, RHP
Fernando Abad, LHP
Doug Arguello, LHP (Arguello was in AA last year, but spent a good portion of the season injured, so may not move up to start the year.)
