It’s opening day in minor league baseball and I’ll be taking a run down to Greenville to see the Drive take on the Asheville Tourists.
The starter for Asheville is David Hill, age 21, listed 6’2″ 195 lbs, bats and throws right. Hill was drafted in the 4th round of the 2015 draft out of Univ of San Diego.
Adam McInturff (Scouts for baseball prospectus) said this on Twitter about David Hill 3 weeks ago:

On the mound for the Greenville Drive is Matt Kent, age 23, listed 6′ 180 lbs, bats and throws left. Kent was drafted out of Texas A&M in the 13th round of the 2015 draft.
Here’s what Sox Prospects has to say about him: http://www.soxprospects.com/players/kent-matt.htm
Both sides have talented position players that I’m looking forward to seeing, headlined by Brendan Rodgers and Luis Alexander Basabe.
I’ll be live Tweeting throughout the night @AshevilleSoxFan and I’ll be posting my thoughts here over the next day or two.
