John also listed the following players as 'others of note': Luke Bailey, Tyler Bortnick, Cesar Cabral, Dane De La Rosa, Derek Dietrich, Shane Dyer, Cole Figueroa, Marquis Fleming, Todd Glaesmann, Brandon Gomes, Hector Guevara, Jesse Hahn, Ian Kendall, Alex Koronis, Kyle Lobstein, Ty Morrison, David Newmann, Zach Quate, Cody Rogers, Albert Suarez, Matthew Sweeney.

Note: Our lists were written back in November, well before the Jason Bartlett trade, so we did not consider any of the players acquired from San Diego. We also did not include Leslie Anderson due to age.

Thoughts on John's list? Any surprises?
