Minor League Camp Update (Courtesy of Baseball America)

Kary Booher of Baseball America has an excellent summary of events at the Angels’ minor league spring training camp. Among the notes of interest:

• Third baseman Luis Jimenez suffered a torn labrum and is out for the year. Jimenez was one of the big bats for Orem in 2008; he was ranked #10 on the 2008 FutureAngels.com Top 10 Prospects list.

• The last report on Hank Conger was that he’d start 2009 at Rancho Cucamonga, but now farm director Abe Flores says that Conger will go to Arkansas if he’s healthy.

• Mason Tobin has been converted to the bullpen and will open 2009 as the Quakes’ closer.

• 3B Matt Sweeney, who missed all of 2008 with an ankle injury, should start 2009 with Rancho Cucamonga.

• Jon Bachanov, the Angels’ 2007 1st round pick who underwent Tommy John surgery, should start pitching next month in extended spring training.

• Young-Il Jung, the other Tommy John patient, is a bit further out, projected to pitch in June.
