  1. Ryan Hoerter returned from injury this weekend and threw 7 innings of 1-hit baseball in a shutout win for Kenosha. Good to see from him after a so-so start to the summer. Brooks Fuller started for Santa Barbara again yesterday and earned the win, going 5 innings and allowing 3 earned runs with 5 Ks and 1 walk on 5 hits. Ryan Bliss was released this morning from Brewster. He had not played in 8 days. He might’ve picked up a small injury that kept him out. Carson Skipper struggled in a start last night, allowing 5 ER on 6 hits with 5 Ks and 2 BBs. He’s had a pretty solid summer with a 14/5 K/BB ratio, which I think is an important number for him. His previous 6 innings he only allowed 2 runs and 4 hits with 9 Ks and 3 walks. Looking for him to bounce back in his next start. Devin Warner was released by Charlottesville. He finished his stint with him hitting .258/.378/.323. Never could quite get on track in the 9 games he played with them. There are a few guys still playing but nothing spectacular happening at the moment. I wouldn’t be too surprised to see all of them called home in the next week or two. It’s been a long year for all of them, and a break before school starts back probably wouldn’t hurt any of them.
  2. He’s on the Elizabethton Twins roster as a 2B. That’s what he played in HS and his first year at Auburn and in the Cape Cod League last year. It’s probably his most natural position.
  3. He’s probably one that was affected most by Julien staying. Same with Troy Bearden. Bearden would’ve had a chance to start at 1B and let Woley play a more natural position for him at 3B.
  4. Yeah, .333/.379/.444 in 27 ABs. Also had 6 runs and 4 RBI.
  5. Sucks because it kinda screwed us on our roster management. We probably let a guy or two transfer because we told them we didn’t have the money for them assuming Julien was returning. Apparently, Auburn was in the loop during the first negotiations, but they were not in this last offer.
  6. I think Moore starts at SS next year. We could a few different things with 3B: move Woley there and play Ceccolli at 1B, play Warner or one of the newcomers (Miller, Farquhar, Odom, Greer) at 3B, or put Moore at 3B and one of those guys at SS. Ceccolli is the intriguing option for me because of his power potential. He’s the one guy in this class that projects big power, and with Julien leaving, it opens up the opportunity to get him on the field. I don’t think he sees the field of Julien was coming back.
  7. Maybe. That’s 4th round money. IMO he would’ve needed an unbelievable year to get into the 2nd round. That’s a big gamble.
  8. I guess so. I’ve asked a few people that are close to the team. Don’t think it’s finalized yet, but the signs seem to point to it happening. Hopefully, someone I know will have a definite answer.
  9. Sounds like we might be losing Julien. Apparently, the Twins have found enough money to get him to sign.
  10. Checking on the guys who are playing. Julien is off to a great start this summer. He did make it to the Cape to play for Hyannis. He’s hitting .389 (7-18) and has a hit in all five games he’s played. He has 4 doubles, one in each of his first four games. Ryan Bliss is also playing well at the plate. He has an 8-game hit streak and has hit safely in all but his first game for Brewster. Brody Moore is off to a fast start in his league. He was named the Player of the night three nights ago after a 4-4 night that included a HR and a double. He’s playing everyday SS for Elmira. Carson Skipper got his first start (second appearance) tonight. He went 4.0 IP, 2 ER, 3 H, 7 K, 1 BB. Also of note, Peyton Glavine has joined the same roster with Skipper and Devin Warner.
  11. One in the same. Not really a fan of that username, as it came from a lost bet, and it’s a ridiculous pain to get it changed.
  12. Julien is playing for Canada in the Pan Am games. My guess is that’s all the summer ball he plays this summer and might explain why he hasn’t reported to his Cape Cod assignment.
  13. I think the equipment is rather expensive. Plus I think the facility will have a new player area along with coaches offices and some other stuff. It’s not strictly hitting cages and a pitching area, but like every other project on campus, it sounds like the cost is significantly higher because it’s on campus than it would be some other place.
  14. My understanding of this facility we’re building is it will be decked out with the latest technological equipment for pitchers and hitters. Basically, it’s an analytical guy’s dream. It will be a place to gather data and be able to make adjustments and corrections in real time.
  15. Following up on our summer ball assignments. Jack Owen has been activated by the Chatham Anglers. Ryan Bliss has been activated by the Brewster Whitecaps. Only a handful of other guys that are still on the roster have registered any playing time. Looks like several guys that were originally on teams might not actually go to those teams and may take the summer off. Several pitchers definitely are, but there are also some position players that were on rosters that no longer show on those rosters. Ed Johnson, Danville Dans: 0-1 Chase Hall, Strasburg Express: 1-3, 1 RBI Brooks Fuller, Santa Barbara Foresters: 3 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 2 K, 3 BB
