A Couple Of Quick Baseball Alumni Notes
Two brief updates on former Huskies currently toiling in the Minor Leagues.
First, top Boston Red Sox prospect Nick Hagadone, the Sox' top pick in the 2007 draft, is continuing to progress in his comeback from "Tommy John" surgery. He's been making short starts for the Greenville (S.C.) Drive in the South Atlantic League and is continuing to attract attention.
Next, Jake Rife has enjoyed a very quick rise up the ranks of the Los Angeles Angels' organization. A 48th-round draft pick, Rife, from Arlington, Wash., started his minor league career just a few weeks ago in Arizona at the lowest level of the system. He moved quickly to Orem (Utah) and now finds himself excelling in the advanced-A level California League with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes.
Here's a newspaper story from the San Bernardino Sun on his early success (6-for-7 with 3 RBI in two games with the Quakes).
