Yesterday, I posted that three former Valley Leaguers were all assigned to Eugene for their first professional experience. Today, I discovered that the situation is being duplicated in the Pioneer League as well!
The Orem Owlz (swallow hard and try to ignore that ‘z’ in the name) currently have three former Valley Leaguers on the roster- all 2014 draft picks. They are 14th rounder Justin Anderson (Front Royal 2013), 17th rounder Ryan Seiz (New Market 2013), and 24th rounder Eason Spivey (Aldie 2013-14)!
Anderson has thrown a scoreless inning, Seiz is 8-26 with two home runs already, and Spivey is 0-9.
I wonder if Spivey and/or Seiz faced Anderson last year!
Well, ok, I went ahead and looked it up. Seiz faced Anderson on June 21, 2013, and singled, walked, and struck out. Spivey faced him on July 19, and grounded out, walked, and reached first on a fielder’s choice.
