Netzer was called up to the Greenville Drive this week.  They travel to Kannapolis next Monday-Wednesday.

Colton Laws was called up to the Vancouver Canadians this week. He's still on a very limited pitch count since he's pitched since February.
http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=t435&player_id=656644#/career/R/pitching/2017/ALL


Nichting is doing well.  Hit his 1st HR and has stolen home twice in the past 2 weeks.
http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=t488&player_id=676635#/career/R/hitting/2017/ALL


Jarrett has struggled a little, but hit his first HR last night.  Hopefully he's got it figured out now.

Barnette was released by the Padres earlier this season and Seager was released by the Mariners a few weeks ago.  I have no clue what Ryan Butler is doing.  He was at Spring Training with the Padres but never left Arizona.

Netzer and Laws are off to great starts to their pro careers. I think Nichting has settled in now as he bounced around the top of the lineup some to start. Hopefully Jarrett can get some consistent at bats. He's struggled a bit and has only played once or twice a week of late.

Very curious what is going on with Butler. I had assumed the Padres signed Barnette to have a familiar face for Butler to help with some of the personal issues he has struggled with.

TJ is holding his own, but Zack will probably be home soon.
Hitting .160 with 36 K's in 81 AB and only 13 hits, 5 RBI's

Netzer was 2-5 with 2 singles, 1 run and an RBI. Both his hits came off lefties which is nice, him being one as well. The weather tried its very best to Niner him -it was dry most of the night but each of his last four at-bats it would start raining as he hit the on-deck circle.

Netzer and the Greenville Drive will be in town this week to play the Initimidators for the SAL Championship. Best of 5 series starts tonight and tomorrow in Kannapolis but weather will surely be a factor.  Netzer was moved into the Top 30 Prospects in the Red Sox organization.


Colton Laws is pitching on a pretty short pitch count up in Vancouver.  They are in the Championship series of the NW League.


Zach Jarrett ended up batting just over .200 for the season and was on a 6 game hit streak at the tail end of the season in Aberdeen.


TJ Nichting won NYPL Player of the week a few weeks back for Aberdeen, and ended up batting .271 with 13 SBs

Brett Netzer is the only Niner still playing.  Greenville leads 2 games to 1 in their best of 5 series vs Kannapolis.  Netzer has had a hit in every playoff game and is batting .400 with 5 RBI in the 6 post season games.


Colton Laws and the Vancouver Canadiens won the NWL Championship this week.  Laws didn't pitch in the post season.  He's been on a limited pitch count since he's been in the pros.


TJ Nichting was named to the Orioles Fall Instructional League team, and will play some additional fall games down at their Spring Training site in Sarasota, FL.
