SEATTLE - After a record eight Huskies were selected in the 2014 Major League Baseball Draft (and all subsequently signed), it is easy to scan minor league rosters and find ex-Washington baseball players playing throughout the country.
One roster alone has three recent Huskies on the team. Joe Meggs, Jeff Brigham and Brian Wolfe are all members of the Ogden Raptors in the single-A Pioneer League. In a recent game the trio faced Robert Pehl's Idaho Falls Chukars, making for a mini Huskies reunion (photo above).
Trevor Mitsui also plays in the Pioneer League for the Missoula Osprey, setting up another Huskies' reunion.
In addition to former Huskies in the minors, Tim Lincecum (Giants) and Nick Hagadone (Indians) are in the Majors. Hagadone was just called up by Cleveland earlier this week.
Below is a list of former Huskies and where they are currently playing in the minors. Please submit any omissions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
