Here are today’s results.
But first, I went to the Complex to see the new guys. Eleven pitchers came out on Carlton Field at 10:30 AM. They did several sets of exercises down the right field line, agility and sprinting. Then they went down the right field line for long toss. Fourteen position players came out on Roberts Field and went through similar exercises down the right field line. Then they came in to do running drills rounding first and second. Then they hit. Yay! While one group hit, another group ran the bases, and a third group shagged.
The pitching group included Orion Kerkering, Mavis Graves, Alex Rao, Josh Bortka, Daniel Harper, Mason Ronan, Eric Garcia, Jack Dallas, Braden Fausnaught, Andrew Walling, and Danny Wilkinson. Dallas, Fassnaught, and Walling didn’t take part in long toss.
The position player group included Justin Crawford, Caleb Ricketts, Chad Castillo, Gustavo Sosa, Emaarion Boyd, Jordan Disson, Cade Fergus, Troy Schreffler, Ty Penner, Dakota Kotowski, Cole Moore, Ryan Leitch, Matt Alifano, and Ezra Farmer. Boyd didn’t take part in the base running or hitting. He did shag for the other groups.
My guess is that the guys who watched couldn’t take part in baseball drills until the results of their physicals came back. Otto Kemp came out to watch during the hitting.
And, now back to our four stateside losses. (Bergolla played for DSL White.)
