Season 1 pick#8

With the 8th pick in season 1, Trenton chose Matthew Newman. He was scouted with good stamina, good control, decent splits, and being a 5 pitch pitcher. He made the Rookie League All Star team in season 1. He was 7-1 and had a 3.17 ERA in Season 1. He was promoted at the end of Season 1 to Low A ball, where he was 1-0 with a .75 ERA the rest of the season in Low A. Season 2 saw him spend the whole time in Low A, where he went 8-11 with a 3.57 ERA. Season 3 saw him AA where he was 10-11 with an ERA just over 5. The extra jump may have caused some delay in production. In season 4 he was in AAA where he was 15-7 with a decent 3.82 ERA. He made his ML debut this season, after going 8-2 in AAA. So far he has done a fine job in the Big leagues. He is 3-1 with a 2.95 ERA , and it looks like he is starting to come into his own. A STUD wannabe.
