Jeremy Cook, the 13th best reliever in the 2018 VBL season, is, by far, the most decorated reliever on the list.
After the season, Jeremy made all three prospect lists; ATVL named him #8, Perfect Game #4, and Baseball America listed him as the best prospect in the entire league. The 6-foot-1 lefthander from Miami certainly has the ingredients to move on to the next level of baseball, as he can run his fastball up to 94 mph, and he also has a sharp slider and a developing curveball.
Cook surely was difficult to hit for Staunton:
Among pitchers on this list, he finish 9th in innings pitched, tied for 9th in batting average against, and 3rd in K/9. He struck out 2 in a shutout inning at the All-Star game, and also pitched an inning at the Prospect Showcase in North Carolina.

Jeremy has the stuff to quickly earn a crucial role in the Hurricanes’ bullpen in 2019, and begin to show up on prospect lists!
