Default Ideas for 2014 Spring Training TTMs/Who to send to?

Hey Guys. I'm doing some TTMs for 2014 Spring Training This Year. Do you guys have any ideas on when to send it and who to send to?
Lmk or pm me if you have any ideas.

Lesser known pitchers on 40-man rosters would be a good start

Regardless of when they're supposed to be at ST (usually some mandated time in the middle of month), I'm planning on sending around like the 4th/5th

Yeah don't send to any of those, they don't sign. Like rukastar said, many pitchers sign. Clayton Kershaw and Josh Hamilton will likely sign in the off-season.

I haven't gotten my Kershaw back, I was under the assumption he returns all the previous year's ttms during ST?

Seemed like last year he signed during early February so I wouldn't rule him out signing yet.

I haven't ruled it out, I just meant if he's going to return my ttm from last year I don't think it will happen until ST of this year I kind of regret sending the card that I did though, I should have sent something different

I am sending to about 50-60 players. About half of which are kind of shot in the darks. Honestly, I am sending to players that I like. And hey, you never now right? I can post my list a little later.

Spring Training isn't what it used to be for TTM. My percentages get lower and lower every season as less players are signing via ST. I look for this trend to continue. I am only going to send to a dozen or two players this season. Here is the catch though...there are always 2-3 players who sign in ST that haven't in the past or are tough TTM. However, it is a roll of the dice as to who it will be each year.

Not last season. I did get him via ST 2 or 3 seasons back, but I would still classify him as a longshot, but who knows what will happen this season.

You can send to Hamilton c/o Angels thoughout the regular season...it doesn't need to be spring training and he will sign, typically right before Christmas after the season is over. He will typically sign 1 per request.

Mat Laos is a very good signer for ST.

I think Mat only signed at one time, and it was like by the 16th or something. You would have needed to send wicked early like a few of us did
