Went 7-for-17 with at least one base hit in all five games at College Station Regional (6/3-7). Scored three runs and collected a pair of RBI in tournament ... Tallied four hits, including a triple, two runs scored and two RBI in three game series against Washington to close regular season (5/27-29) ... Went 4-for-8 in three-game set at Stanford (5/20-22) ... Two hits, two RBI, a run scored and two sacrifices in three-game set at Washington State (5/14-16) ... Collected five base hits, including an extra base hit in each contest, three RBI and four runs scored in three games against Alcorn State (5/6-8) ... Went 3-for-8 with two RBI, two walks and a run scored in three contests at USC (4/29-5/1) ... Wrist injury limited him to 3-for-36 stretch and two missed starts from 4/2-29 ... Hitless in three trips to the plate in mid-week tilt against Arizona State (4/26) ... Hitless in five at-bats over three games - two starts - at Oregon (4/21-23) ... Collected two hits and a run scored in series-opening victory over UCLA, but hitless next days (4/15-17) ... Combined 1-for-9 in three games against California (4/8-10) ... Did not play in mid-week game against Arizona State (4/5) ... Two hits, a run scored and an RBI in series-opening win against Oregon State, but hitless next two games (4/1-3) ...

Collected two hits and an RBI in three game set against San Francisco (3/19-21) ... Two hits, including a double, two walks and a run scored in pair of mid-week games at Wichita State (3/15-16) ... Rapped out nine base hits, including four in each of last two contests in three-game set against Northern Colorado (3/11-13) to go with four runs scored ... Two hits, two runs, two RBI in two games at UNLV (3/8-9) ... Registered two hits, including a triple, with two runs scored and two RBI in three-game series against Utah Valley (3/4-6) ... Tallied a base hit and three runs scored in two mid-week games against Rice (3/1-2) ... Combined to hit 4-for-11 with two runs and an RBI in series at Long Beach State (2/25-27) ... Went 3-for-12 with a run scored in season-opening series against North Dakota State (2/18-20).

    You can see where he must have risen in their estimation - a bit of helium at the tail end of the year

    Well - there's the 3B, now all we need is a 1B and 2B for a complete team.

    Nats take our old friend Stephen Perez. Glad we didn't give him big money out of HS in hindsight.
    Go BLUE!!!

    Seth looks like a slick glove at third. The question will be can he hit? Kinda like a 3rd base version of Zach Cozart

    4 pitchers in 10 picks. You can tell they think the position players in the farm are thin, either that or they think the pitchers available in this draft are underwhelming.

    Interesting pick with Majias-Brean.... apparently is an incredibly athlete and puts on shows in batting practice with his power. Strange that given his BP shows, he hit all of 2 home runs in three years of college.

    LOL. Thanks for the name correction. I slaughtered another name.

    Here's an excerpt that tells you what Doug is referring to about Brean being a superb athlete:
    Seth Mejias-Brean's stellar junior season has inevitably led to comparisons - but not to other baseball players.

    To hear the Arizona Wildcats third baseman's teammates tell it, Mejias-Brean is a cross between Paul Bunyan and Chuck Norris, with a little Roy Hobbs mixed in.

    Hand the UA's starting third baseman a football, and he'll throw it 60 or 70 yards.

    "They call him Tebow," coach Andy Lopez said.

    Give Mejias-Brean a basketball, and he'll show off a 360-degree slam dunk.

    "He's just a freak," outfielder Robert Refsnyder said.

    But Mejias-Brean is at his best with a bat in his hands. His batting practice sessions are legendary, complete with towering home runs and crushed line drives that send teammates dodging.

    At 6 feet 2 inches and 210 pounds, the Cienega High graduate fills out a uniform better than anybody on the team. Pro scouts love his projectability, whether it's at third base, in the outfield or at catcher - a position he's never played before.

    "I mean, look at his body," shortstop Alex Mejia said. "You can see him playing in the big leagues, like, next year.

    "I've never seen a player like him. When he hits it, and the ball's flying out, it's hit so hard. ... Really, it's almost like the thing is yelling."
