Just wanting to get some thoughts on a couple guys playing for the low-A affiliate here in Lexington. I haven't been to any games this year but I listen to them a lot on the radio and a couple of guys have caught my eye/ear so far and I was wanting to see if they're the real deal. BTW, this is the Sally League so I'm not sure how it compares with other leagues in terms of hitters/pitchers parks, but there are some impressive numbers on both sides.
He's pretty old for low-A (22) but his numbers are pretty impressive nonetheless.
234AB .346/.423/.718 23HR 7SB 52RBI
He's only 19 and has been lights out so far. He's consistently up in the low-mid 90's from what I can gather and from the left side that is pretty much a guarantee for at least a look in the show.

71.1IP 72SO 31BB 1.77ERA 1.01WHIP
Just turned 21 in January so he's kind of old for low-A isn't he?
I was wanting to go out and catch a couple of games before some of these guys get called up since most of the really good players don't stick around here too long it seems.
I'm not sure when his next start is, but I'd really like to catch Patton a couple times since he seems to be wowing the scouts -- and the broadcasters -- so far.
