WINTER HAPPENINGS

Former SkyChiefs first-baseman and current IL MVP Kevin Witt is heading back to Japan next season.  After being taken off the Devil Rays 40-man roster, Witt announced that he will be playing for the Tohku Rakuten Golden Eagles.  Witt was in Orlando for the Winter Meetings to collect the Joe Bauman Award, awarded to the Minor League player with the most home runs this season.

Speaking of MVP’s Blue Jays prospect Chip Cannon was named the MVP of the Arizona Fall League

Cannon, 25, nearly became the first player to win the AFL Triple Crown, leading the league in home runs (11), RBIs (29), total bases (75), slugging percentage (.714) and OPS (1.188). He was second in on-base percentage (.474), tied for second in hits (37) and finished fourth with a .357 batting average.

It will be interesting to see where the Jays start Cannon this season now that they have resigned Kevin Barker to a Minor League deal.
