This Thursday the Pensacola Blue Wahoos are making Kenny Powers happy with their What If Night and a Mullet Hall of Fame to compliment it.
With summer practically here, the BlueWahoos are ringing in the beautiful weather with something truly unique. There are some many different MiLB themed nights. From bobbleheads to fireworks, to the different themed jerseys, the possibilities are endless.
Which means I’ll never fully see all the jerseys. Especially since some MiLB teams have been creating themed jerseys for ever ten years. However, there won’t ever be a time when I don’t think a jersey/logo is cool. The Blue Wahoos Mullet Jerseys are no different; they are awesome.
The Pensacola Blue Wahoos are the Double-A Affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds playing in the Southern League. Today’s featured prospects are Amir Garret and Alex Blandino.
Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Slider: 55 | Changeup: 50 | Control: 50 | Overall: 55
From MLB Pipeline:
When the Reds gave Garrett seven figures back in 2011 to play baseball in the summer while playing college basketball in the winter, the hope was the big southpaw would get hoops out of his system and turn to the diamond full-time. He did that in 2014, and he’s been steadily improving on the mound ever since.
Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 45 | Run: 40 | Arm: 55 | Field: 50 | Overall: 50
From MLB Pipeline:
The 2014 Draft’s crop of college hitters already stands out, with Kyle Schwarber, Michael Conforto and Trea Turner reaching the big leagues during the 2015 season. Blandino, taken near the end of the first round, isn’t there yet, but he may not be far behind.
Blandino gets high marks for his makeup and leadership skills. Some of his Draft-mates may have beaten him to the big leagues, but once Blandino gets there, he’s going to be the type of player winning teams want to have in the lineup.
