SEATTLE - Not counting the Huskies that might begin their minor league careers after having been drafted last week, 13 former Washington baseball players are currently playing minor league baseball. Five former Diamond Dawgs are playing at the AAA level, one step short of the major leagues.
Following is a list of the 13 former Huskies in the minor leagues, along with links to their official team sites. Obviously, any of these players could change teams or levels at any point of the season, but as of today, this list is accurate. Also, as many as six former Washington players selected in last week's draft could sign professional contracts and be assigned to a minor league team in the near future.
Here's the list:
Player Team League Level Travis Anderson West Tenn Southern AA Tyler Davidson* Brooklyn New York-Penn SS-A Michael Done Delmarva South Atlantic A Jay Garthwaite Lancaster California A Matt Hampton Portland Pacific Coast AAA Jeff Heaverlo Tacoma Pacific Coast AAA Bryan Johnson Lancaster California A Shawn Kohn Kane County Midwest A Todd Linden Fresno Pacific Coast AAA Chris Magruder* Buffalo International AAA Andre Marshall Lakewood South Atlantic A Aaron Myette Buffalo International AAA Ryan Soules Frisco Texas AA
