Some injury news to pass along before we get started: first, Savannah outfielder Jared King has been put on the DL with a fibula fracture. Also, pitcher Ty Bashlor, who pitched with Kingsport last year and who I identified as one of the organization’s sleeper prospects before the season, underwent Tommy John surgery, so we’ll see him in 2015. Bashlor received the 4th biggest signing bonus in last year’s draft behind only the Mets first three picks.
