Dynasty Athlete Representation

7/16/09 News & Notes

Last night was the Triple-A All Star Game.  Pete Parise has been enjoying his time off.  While he is resting, other Dynasty clients have been performing well on the field.

  • Last night, Dan Leatherman picked up his 3rd save of the season. He pitched 2 innings, logged 3 strikeouts, and gave up no hits or no runs to improve his ERA 3.30.  Dan has been on fire as of late.  In his last 7 games, he has pitched 10.2 innings, given up 0 earned runs while striking out 12 batters, walking only 4, and giving up only 5 hits.  He has notched 2 saves in that span of games.  If Dan keeps it up, he won’t be in High A Potomac for long.
  • Ryan Platt was not with the AZL Brewers for long.  The 2009 draft pick was just moved to Short Season Helena.  Enjoy the beauty of Montana!
  • The site Rum Bunter at, is in the middle of a multiple part interview with Kyle McPhersonPart I talks about McPherson’s class and the revamping of the State College Spikes.  Part II speaks of the role of Kyle’s father in Kyle’s life and has an interesting tidbit about him at the very end.  Part III will be up tonight.
  • Enough about Pitcher U; our position players have been doing well, too.  Rand Smith went 2-4 with 2 runs scored last night for the Jamestown Jammers (Marlins affiliate).  The Jammers won the game by a score of 6-2.  And Tommy Johnson is having a great start to his season.  He went 1-4 with a walk and a run scored last night, and is batting .344 on the year.
