More to come in a bit.

UPDATE 6:20 PM: Information on two of the big Washington prospects in this game:

-Chris Marrero was the #6 prospect in the Washington system a few years ago, but saw his career struggle.  He had a bounce back year last year in high-A, and advanced to AA during the 2009 season.  He’s spent the entire 2010 season in AA, with a .294/.350/.450 line and 18 homers in 524 at-bats.

-Michael Burgess was the #9 prospect in the farm system prior to the 2010 season, and a first round compensation pick in 2007.  He made the jump to AA this season, with a .284/.391/.649 line and six homers in 74 at-bats.  He has plus-plus raw power, and has shown a bit of that potential this year.

Should be a challenge for Owens in the middle of the lineup.
