The hardest rocking jersey in all of the MiLB comes straight out of El Paso, Texas as the El Paso Chihuahuas will be wearing the Kiss Jersey below this weekend.
Now that’s cool. Despite the recurrence of Star Wars Night (don’t get me wrong I think Star Wars Night is cool), it’s neat to see something like this. I can say I have yet to see a MiLB team sport a rock band on their jersey. That is until now.
Even the dog on the sleeve has the KISS facepaint going on; that’s cool. Regarding entertainment value, I’d rather see jerseys like this over a big name MLB star-No I’m not lying. These jerseys will be worn one time, whereas I can see Miggy at any Tigers game I wish to.
The El Paso Chihuahuas are the Triple-A Affiliate of the San Diego Padres, playing in the Pacific Coast League. The Chihuahuas history can be traced back to the creation of the PCL as the Los Angeles Angels in 1903. Today’s top prospects are Hunter Renfroe and Justin Hancock.
Hunter Renfroe, OF
Renfroe is the number three prospect in the Padres system. He was the Padres overall number one pick in the 2012 draft and number 13 overall. Renfroe has impressive raw batting and fielding power but still has skills he needs to hone before he can play in the show.
Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 60 | Run: 50 | Arm: 60 | Field: 55 | Overall: 55
Justin Hancock, RHP
The Padres drafted Hancock out of Junior College after he had an impressive junior year. He relies mostly on his fastball, although he has other pitches. He’s limited by his shaky control and has had trouble with his secondary pitches. Hancock has aspirations to be a starter, but as of now he is projected to be a middle reliever.
Scouting grades: Fastball: 60 | Curveball: 45 | Changeup: 55 | Control: 45 | Overall: 45
