Readers of this blog are aware that I have had chats with former players in the Georgia Baseball and Softball Academy Rays program. Those players are currently in the Minor Leagues and are each at different levels of their professional baseball journey. I have kept up with these young men and would like to report on their current status.
Armond Upshaw, Auburn Doubledays (New York-Penn League): .167/ .335/ .210 with 5 RBI, 18 Runs Scored, 8/11 in stolen bases and 27 BB
DJ Neal, GCL Blue Jays (Gulf Coast League): .263/ .311/ .360 with 9 RBI, 16 Runs Scored, 7/9 in stolen bases and 6 BB
Mason Davis, Jupiter Hammerheads (Florida State League): .267/ .326/ .377 with 22 RBI, 37 Runs Scored, 11/14 in stolen bases and 14 BB
Jacquez Williams, Arizona League Padres (Arizona League): .226/ .352/ .434 with 18 RBI, 17 Runs Scored, 1/1 in stolen bases and 19 BB
There are three other alums who I have not caught up with yet for a chat. They are:
