Twitter continues to be an interesting as well as expanding source of baseball news. Many minor leaguers are not only establishing a public presence there, but some have even been actively begging for fan followers in apparent good-natured popularity contest with their peers.
Earlier this season, we first learned of the promotion of St. Louis Cardinals number one prospect Shelby Miller from Palm Beach to Springfield via a tweet from the player himself.
The trend continues as Tuesday night, Joe Kelly received congratulations from other players in the organization for his yet-to-be announced move up to Springfield from Palm Beach.
As more and more players join Twitter, you may be interested in following them, too. Here is a list of Cardinals major and minor leaguers, though likely far from complete. Their Twitter handles are listed first. The active links for many of the player names will take you to their stats page at Baseball-Reference.com.
