Phil Coke's road to the majors was far short of glamorous - Grantland

An interesting look at life in the minor leagues.

For minor leaguers, being broke also means subsisting just about entirely on fast food, a curious way for teams to develop finely tuned athletes.1 For Coke, this became a legitimate problem, with the 6-foot-1 lefty ballooning to 245 pounds. Between the injuries, the mixed track record, and now the extra weight, it seemed he wouldn't be long for the game.
This is something that I wonder about. If a team were to develop a nutrition plan for it's minor leaguers would they have an advantage in the development of those players?
