Most of our best prospects are in West Michigan and Lakeland. The VSL Tigers are 19-5 and running away with the league.Jose Azocar an 18yr old CF is leading the league in AVG and OBP .394/.424 Junnell Ledezma another 18 yr old 3rd baseman is right behind in 2nd .366/.412
Eudis Joel Idrogo is an old man at 19 is leading the league in ERA .037 Whip .074 Angel Vasquez sits 4th at 2.45/0.92 at 21 he will be stateside soon ERA's at 6 plus has held him back the last 3 years Alfred Gutierrez is 6th at 2.66/1.12 the 19 yr old has only walked 2 in 5 starts
With Jake Thomson and Jonathon Crawford among others looking at midseason promotions. West Michigan leading their league and Lakeland with a 40-25 record what is Dave and Chad looking for in this draft?
Spencer Turnbull is a college pitcher who projects as a starter but some scouts think better served in the bullpen
Adam Ravenelle is another pitcher who scouts think can get to the bigs quick as a bullpen arm.
Artie Lewicki started 13/16 games for the #1 Virgina Cavilers in 2013 an injury limited him to a strict pitch count
he started 9/12 games this year and had 4 pickoffs but spent time in the pen every year
The guy with the best nickname is Josh "Ex" Laxer made 8 starts and 4 bullpen games was 5/12 in 2013
he didn't start any games in 2014 and was the back up closer
Did Dave and Chad try to repeat 2013 and find a bullpen arm that can get to Detroit quickly?
Seems that way
Side note Josh Laxer and Artie Lewicki's teams both made the college world series it would be neat if they squared off against each other
