Twinkie Town 2011 Top 50...Prospect #34!

New, 17 comments

We finally selected a catcher when Danny Rams beat out Rob Delaney by five votes as our Prospect #33. Rams had 35 votes (24%), while Bruce Pugh was a distant third.

Miguel Munoz received only two votes and will be dropped from the next round. Added will be one of the top young relievers in the organization who was my ninth ranked pitcher, Jose Gonzalez. Also added will be Beloit middle infielder James Beresford.

Gonzalez is a 20 year old lefty who spent the majority of his year in Elizabethton where he appeared in 18 games (22.0 innings) with a 0.41 ERA (yes, he allowed only one run) and a 0.64 WHIP with 33 strikeouts (13.5K/9 innings) and 6 walks. Gonzalez also had a stint with the Ft. Myers Miracle where he had a 1.17 ERA and 0.85 WHIP in eight appearances (15.1 innings) with 10 strikeouts and only one walk. Beresford joined the Perth Heat after the first of the year and has been on fire, hitting .487/.524/.641 in 39 at bats. Beresford, who celebrated his 22nd birthday yesterday, hit .297/.349/.363 in Beloit where he was named the Snappers 'Player of the Year.'

This round will remain open until noon, Friday, January 21st. Please continue letting us know why you voted for who you did and who you would like to see in future rounds.
