Its generally all in there head. Billy Beane talked about this in "Moneyball". Billy was actually a phenomenal athlete and baseball player all his life but once he got to the bigs he flammed out mentally.

Uh, you are correct, DaQ, but we're talking about minor leaguers in this thread. ;-)

The Puebla Angels are a Mexican League team so the stats won't show up on the Cube (its not a direct MiLB team). He played 5 or 6 more seasons in the Mexican league after he left the Royals.

Correction

OK, I was wrong.

The player was Tom Drees and he didn't pitch 2 no-hitters in the same minor league season, he pitched 3! And was not called up by the White Sox that season.
