Former first-rounder leverages personal bests

Former first-rounder leverages personal bests

Former first-round pick Courtney Hawkins took a career year with the Independent League’s Sugar Land Skeeters and used it to sign a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds organization. Hawkins, who was drafted 13th overall by the White Sox in the 2012, spent the majority of his career between High-A and Double-A. He had always shown promising power hitting double digits in home runs when he played a full season, but the low batting average and OBP appeared to be his achilles heel. He was released after the first couple weeks of 2018 batting .120 in 25 at bats. Most people who

After a career year, Valdespin is your MVP

After a career year, Valdespin is your MVP

After a career year, Jordany Valdespin was named the Long Island Ducks MVP. There really nothing that he hasn’t done in the game. In all, Valdespin has appeared in over 1300 games at the professional level including four years with the New York Mets and Miami Marlins. In all that time in the game he’s never put up a year like he just had. And that’s nothing to be ashamed of. There’s no doubt that one of the most versatile players in the Atlantic League has the skill and talent to again, play at the next level. The Ducks, who made the announcement

Your Road To The Show

Your Road To The Show

For the first time in probably two years I picked up a video game controller with the sole purpose of playing a video game, not cruising Netflix or Amazon Prime. No homework, no day job work, just a responsibility free Saturday afternoon. I put in MLB The Show 18 and was blown away by its realism. I’m no game connoisseur, I just wanted to be entertained. And damn right I was!! I’ve been hearing about the Road To The Show game mode for years (RTTS) so decided to give it a shot. Pretty cool to say the least. You go through pre-draft

Nowhere to go but up for former first-round pick Kyle Drabek

Nowhere to go but up for former first-round pick Kyle Drabek

Kyle Drabek was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the first round of the (18th) 2006 MLB Draft. Three years later, as a top 25 prospect, he was one of three players traded for future Hall of Famer Roy Halladay. 13 years later and the future superstar is in Independent baseball trying to regain what once made him “can’t miss”. Last year Drabek was attempting a comeback with the Sugar Land Skeeters and needless to say, was not what anyone expected; 1-3, 8.33 ERA, 27 innings, 35 hits, 1.815 WHIP. Come 2018, he signed with the Pericos de Puebla of the Mexican

Portelli has greatest season in Pecos League history

Portelli has greatest season in Pecos League history

Brian Portelli is not a household name, and even after what he did in the Pecos League, it still might not register amongst watercooler conversations. Portelli’s college career began at Grand Rapids Community College before he transferred to Florida International where he never hit below .343. After going undrafted, he signed with the Southern Illinois Miners where he spent the better part of two seasons with them. He batted .233 over 71 games with six home runs and 28 RBI. Over the course of four collegiate years and two in the Independent leagues, Portelli hit a grand total of 16 home
