It also set the franchise record for home runs in a season by a Lexington Legend. Seuly will need to hit 12 more to break the South Atlantic League record of 40, 11 to tie.

“Melendez has more athleticism than most catchers, and it’s obvious in all phases of his defensive game. He’s a quality receiver who moves quickly to block balls in the dirt, and his footwork enhances his plus arm. Because he grew up around the game, he’s a more advanced game-caller than most teenagers.”
Yunior MarteMarte is an interesting guy that I think has a good shot to pitch in the big leagues soon. He’s found his form again during his second go round of AA and he’s another guy I wouldn’t be surprised to see in Omaha soon.
If you’re following along, you might be wondering why a team that had won four games in over a month’s worth of contests didn’t descend to Worst Overall Team earlier, well, may I present to you the 2018 Baltimore Orioles.
