Season 1 pick#9

With the 9th pick in season 1, Minnesota chose Davey Rivers. Rivers has 4 pitches, including a good sinker, and knuckle ball. Season 1 in the rookie level saw him 9-2 with an ERA of 2.94. That also bought him home the CY Young Award. Season 2 saw him 12-5 in Low A with a 4.25 ERA. Season 3 he was in High A and AA, combining for a 14-4 record, with a 2.88ERA. Season 4 also bought him a 14-5 record in AA. Season 5 saw him in a new uniform, as he was claimed off rule 5 draft waivers. That alone was surprising . He has done a fair job jumping 2 levels...8-14 with a 4.24 ERA. A STUD in the making.
