Kevin Goldstein: Great Leap Forward

Scouts now have little trouble getting past catcher Angel Salome's downright strange five-foot-seven, 200-pound frame after he put together a .360/.415/.559 line at Double-A Hunstville. Beyond the outstanding offense, he also made defensive improvements behind the plate, showing more mobility, and improved accuracy on his throws.

I don't know if that's related to the epic ongoing Sabathia PTBNL saga or what.
