The one twitter vote has spoken! Today we’ll look at the next minor league report….
Our second installment of my latest dumb series is regarding Staunton’s pro players- of which they have 16, the second most among VBL teams:
- Strasburg does not have a major leaguer yet, but there are a whopping eight MLBers on Staunton’s list: Meisinger, Jay, Howard, Adams, McGrath, Margevicius, Pearson, and Harris. Zombro is in Triple-A, just one step away. I honestly think that Zombro and Ward will play in the majors, and Reeves, Lopez, and Gonzalez have (in my opinion) a 50-50 shot. Don’t @ me.
- The best “prospect” on this list is Pearson, but of the non-MLB players, it’s Ward. The highest draft pick is Pearson, who went 28th overall in 2017.
- Interesting that Harris played in the VBL a cool 18 years ago. One of his teammates was….. G.W. Laase, current Strasburg Express head coach.
