Hey guys, I’m taking a run down to Fluor Field in Greenville today to see the Drive (Red Sox) take on the Augusta Greenjackets (Giants). It will be my 2nd look at Augusta this season.
On the mound for Augusta is right hander Luis Pino, age 21, listed 6′ 175 lbs. He was signed out of Mexico in 2012.
On the mound for Greenville is right hander Roniel Raudes, age 18, listed 6’1″ 160 lbs. Raudes was signed out of Nicaragua in 2014.
Raudes is one of the youngest players in the league and he’s having an excellent year. I’ll be doing a write up on him after the game.
Some of the Augusta hitters I’m looking forward to seeing:
Jalen Miller- I’ll be doing a 1st impression write up on Miller this week.
and Johneshwy Fargas is back.
Unfortunately Lucius Fox is hurt and Gustavo Cabrera has been sent to extended.
On the Greenville side the Basabe twins are always exciting, there will be a piece up on them at some point.
Michael Chavis is healthy and I’m looking forward to seeing him.
It should be a fun game I’ll be live Tweeting throughout @AshevilleSoxFan.
Coming up on Notes is some more bios for college draftees who could see time in the Sal this yr.
Also in the pipeline is a write up for Seby Zavala, catcher for Kannapolis. This is a guest post from my friend Dan Victor (On Twitter @slydanno70) That should be up today.
