28 of Top 30 Prospects in Florida

With the opening of minor league mini-camp today in Kissimmee, 28 of the Astros' top 30 prospects (according to Baseball America) have reported to training camp. Out of the top 30, only right handed pitchers Prospect #19 Arcenio Leon and Prospect #28 Ashton Mowdy are not in Florida as part of the mini-camp, as a big league non roster invitee or as a member of the 40-man roster.

Any reason why either of them aren't participating? Ashton Mowdy was very succesful at Lexington, althouh had a rough end of the season at Lancaster.

the word from the Astros offices is that nothing is up with Leon and Mowdy. They are scheduled to report with Pitchers and Catchers March 5.
