One year ago Jonathan Schoop was an unknown SS prospect playing in the GCL and now he’s the #2 prospect in the system playing in the Carolina League.
Tyler Townsend went 3 for 4 with 2 runs, a double, a home run, 4 RBI, a walk, and a strikeout in a 10-7 Frederick win.

Parker Bridwell pitched 5 innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 ER with 5 strikeouts in a 4-3 Aberdeen win.
Here’s the latest version of our prospect depth chart.
A 22nd round in the 2009 draft, Cameron Coffey signed for an over-slot bonus of $990,000 and is one of many talented young arms from that class working their way up the system. He’s finally healthy and ready to put his talent on display.
Tim Berry comes in at #33 in our top prospect countdown; he’s a guy I’ve touched up on quite a bit. He was a 50th round draft pick in 2009, and a result doesn’t receive much attention, although he should.
