Good morning baseball fans!

Keith Law released his farm system organization rankings, with the Braves being first and the Angels being last.
Here is a list of the remaining arbitration cases.
Has AJ Preller learned anything during his first year on the job as Padres general manager? Our own Mike Bates tries to answer that.
Preller looks like he found something he's good at, identifying players in other organizations who will improve the health of his franchise for the long term. He made deals that will help the Padres in a year or two, and some of those might see dividends before the year is out. Also, if any of his one-year deals plays well, they'll be a prime trade candidate this July, assuming Preller stops sitting on his hands. The future is brighter in San Diego, but it's still not clear that their sophomore GM is going to cut it over the long run.
The Braves signed reliever Carlos Torres to a minor-league deal.
A writer comparing Joey Votto and Bryce Harper? Yup, that's what Nick Stellini of Beyond the Box Score kinda did when he explored what Bryce Harper's MVP season really looked like.
Jeff Sullivan tried to find a team for incoming Cuban free agent Yulieski Gurriel.
