Tim Collins Hot Start

Last year their were alot of questions if Tim Collins could keep up his sick stats last year from Low A in Lansing.

He is a 19 year old pitcher from Worceseter, MA and lived not far from our GM JP Ricardi. He comes in at 5'7'' 155 and has a low 90sfb.

So far this season Tim has kept up his torrent pace in A+ in Dunedin.

14ip, 26k, 1.29era, and batters hitting 0.085 off him.

David Cooper's Slow Start

So far this season our Top Pick in '08 David Cooper has been off to a slow start.

To date he has been hitting 231/310/385 with 1hr and 3rbis.

With him being from Cali, I think its safe to say this is his first time playing in the cold weather, and should begin to tear it up in May once it gets warmer in NH.
