Spring Training: The Pitchers
by Randall L. Whipkey
Sutton and four other young pitching prospects have been invited to
spring training with the major league Summerset Swatters. Each of
the five, including Will, spent last season with one of the Swatters'

which isn't at the A level, both played college baseball for
- Wynn's chances of making the final major league roster are

- Pete, a righthander, was with an A league team in 2000; he

- John is one of the two lefthanders among the five prospects.
- RHP Palmer, who isn't Andy, is one of the two training camp
invitees who pitched for AA teams last season.
- The five candidates for the Swatters' bullpen are Andy, Young,
the one who played for Low Plains in 2000, one of the two
prospects who spent last season with an AAA farm team, and a
