  • The Reds may have gone out on the limb taking Moss in the 4th round last June. Through three season collegiate seasons with the University of Florida, the left-hander only pitched 23 innings. He missed all of his freshman and sophomore seasons due to Tommy John surgery and a later follow-up surgery. He pitched mostly in relief during the next spring and was key in getting the Gators to the College World Series. Moss was assigned to the Billings Mustangs (Pioneer League) following the draft and posted a 3-1 record with a 2.35 ERA. His big 6′ 5″- 215 lb. frame comes equipped with a projectable arm that throws a low 90’s fastball. It should reach into the upper 90’s once he logged innings and regains pre-2014 strength. He also has a developing slider that’s above-average (right now) and elicits swings and misses. His 11 K’s last night is a career-high.

  • Sawyer joins the Snappers’ 8-man rotation and got his first pro start throwing five perfect innings. The left-hander is another polished college arm that split time between the bullpen and rotation at the University of Minnesota. After throwing 90+ innings during his senior year, the A’s assigned Sawyer to the bullpen at Vermont (NYPL) where he only threw 18.2 innings. He posted a 3.38 ERA, 3 saves, and a 26:10 K:BB rate along with a 65% groundball rate. He throws a commanding 90-93 fastball from a low release point that creates deception and a accompanying slider and change-up.
