2019 Prospect -

Brennan Malone   RHP    Porter Ridge

           PG Grade: 10 - Brennan Malone is a 2019 RHP/1B with a 6-4 205 lb. frame from Matthews, NC who attends Porter Ridge HS. Big and strong young pitcher's build. Fluid delivery, loose arm from a 3/4's arm slot, ball comes out of his hand easily, low effort mechanics. Fastball topped out at 91 mph, have seen up to 94 at other times at PG events, mostly straight, maintains his velocity and throws strikes with his fastball. Best breaking balls have true curveball 11/5 shape and good depth at 73 mph, will throw through the break at times and have it flatten out. Developing change up with a slower arm at release. Huge potential as a power pitcher. Good student, verbal commitment to North Carolina.

Savannah Bananas

     
 

         Because now fans in the greater Savannah area are trained. They get their tickets weeks early and often for a chance to see a show that includes the team owner roaming the stands in his signature yellow tuxedo and the players—yes, the players—performing choreographed dances between the second and third inning.




The 2018 Free-Agent Class No Longer Looks Poised to Change Baseball –
         
  But we can’t count on most players to repeat their performances from one year to the next, let alone one year to the next two or three. And nowhere in baseball are the limits to consistency and human predictive powers more apparent than in the gradual undoing of the vaunted 2018 free-agent class, which once appeared to have the power to reshape the sport. Following several subtractions, collapses, and intensifying physical concerns, that class—which is now months away from graduating its team-control years—looks like a fraction of its former self: still intriguing, but not transformative. And that could be bad news for baseball, which has watched its financial structure and labor relations grow increasingly precarious and can no longer look to a massive free-agent windfall for salvation.


College World Series champion Oregon State won six straight elimination games.

          
Oregon State 5, Arkansas 0 - Oregon State never trailed in Game 3 of the College World Series, taking a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning and gradually added to its lead over the next eight innings. Abel was stellar, throwing a two-hit shutout while striking out 10 batters. College World Series Most Outstanding Player Adley Rutschman continued swinging a hot bat, going 3-for-4 with 2 RBI and one run, putting his name in the record books with a record 17 hits in the CWS.

How they scored the game-winning run: Rutschman drove in what proved to be the game-winning run in the fourth at-bat in the bottom of the first inning. He singled through the left side, scoring Grenier.
