Dover Diamond Dogs " down on the farm"

Next up in the report, is the Dover Diamond Dogs. The owner has improved this franchise in all 3 seasons he has been at the helm. This season is no different. Let's see who is behind all of it.

1. Trevor Rocker...... Trevor "don't call me John" Rocker is a pitcher who will be heard of in the big leagues. He has very good control, decent splits, and of course 5 pitches. Trevor is in AAA this season, and here is what he has done so far. In 75 innings, 79 hits, 8 homers, 18 walks, and 81 strikeouts. His best pitch is his screwball. He will be a very solid player for seasons to come.He is 7-4 with a 3.57 ERA

2.Eric Summers..... Eric is a multi task pitcher. He can start, long relief, or close. He has very good stamina, good control,decent splits, and 5 pitches. His best pitch is his palm ball. In 36 innings,he has given up 41 hits,4 homers, 12 walks, while fanning 32. He is 3-1 6 for 7 in saves, and a 2.95 ERA.

3.Kelly Bowie......Kelly "Don't call me David" Bowie is another one of Dover's 4 or 5 pitch pitchers. In High A he has pitched 79 innings, while given up 68 hits, 6 homers,25 walks, while fanning 70. Great stamina, good control, very good splits, and 4 pitches. He is 6-3 with a 2.60 ERA.

4.Benji Logan..... Benji has just been recently promoted to AA ball. So far combined in High A and AA he has done a very good job. In 16 innings, he has given up 16 hits, 0 homers,6 walks, while punching out 19. he is 9 for 11 in saves with a 2.59 ERA.

5.Houston James.....Houston may develop into a low key major league pitcher. He has great control, decent splits, and 3 very good pitches. In Low A he is 10 for 11 in saves, with a 1.88 ERA. In 15 innings he has given up 16 hits, 1 homer, 6 walks, and 13 strikeouts.

6.Billy Ray Heiserman...... Billy is going to be a very good impact player in the major leagues. In AA he has hit .3111 with 30 doubles, 2 triples, 11 homers, while driving in 45. He has 32 walks, 39 strike outs, while stealing 15 bases. He has an OBP of .389. He is a switch hitter, with good contact, good power, and decent splits.

7.Chad Payton..... Chad will be a very good DH/1B in the majors. He has good power,decent splits, very good batting eye, to go along with a good make-up. In AAA he hit .342 with 13 doubles, 7 homers, 37 runs batted in, while walking 23 times.

8.Kirt Martin..... Kirt will be another impact ML player in future seasons. He has good power, great batting eye, very good splits, good contact, and most of all a make-up that would make a model proud. In AAA he has 13 doubles, 1 triple, 8 homers, 44 runs batted in, while holding a lofty .413 OBP. He also has a .325 average with 33 walks, and only 33 strike outs.

9.Mark Randall.....Rumor has it, Mark was at the "gentleman's club" when our scouts were there watching Dover. He is a top pitching prospect to say the least. He is 4-7 with a 3.64 ERA. We could have missed him earlier due to the stats :) He has 5 pitches, which alone will make him dangerous and very tough to hit. He has great control, very good splits, and we have no doubt he will win 20 in the near future. In 113 innings he has given up 132 hits, 8 homers, 36 walks, while fanning 99.

No love for Mark Randall? He's the best of the pitching prospects.
