Kyle Conley, who got his pro career off to a bit of a slow start, has begun to come around at the plate. Now with the Batavia Muckdogs in the New York-Penn League, Conley is batting .354 with seven doubles and four homers in his time with the Muckdogs.
Jake Rife, who has spent time with three teams this summer, continues to play well with the advanced-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes in the Cal League. Overall this summer, Rife is batting .319.
Brian Pearl has notched five saves for the Billings Mustangs in the Pioneer League while Jason Erickson has a solid 2.42 ERA as a part-time reliever/part-time starter for State College in the NY-Penn. The final Dawg who signed this past June, Jorden Merry, is 2-1 with a 2.57 ERA for Pulaski in the Appalachian League.
Former Red Sox prospect Nick Hagadone, still making steady progress in his comeback from Tommy John surgery, was traded to Cleveland this summer. Overall, since returning the mound, he has struck out 45 and allowed only 18 hits in 33.2 innings.
Another lefty, Nick Haughian, is tearing up the New York-Penn. Playing for the Aberdeen Ironbirds, Nick is 6-2 with a 2.05 ERA this season.
Finally, a little more off the beaten track in the independant Golden League, former UW outfielder Andre Marshall is batting .306 with a team-high five triples for the Tucson Toros.
