RHP Justin Dunn (HiA St Lucie – New York Mets) 21 years old

  • Dunn is starting to look a 1st round pick (2016) in that he’s only allowed one earned run over his last 16 innings. Granted, last night was his first start since May 11th after being sent to the bullpen, after posting a 6.89 ERA in his first 7 starts of the season.
