- Eusebio came to the U.S. after two seasons in the DSL, and gets a repeat assignment in the Northwest League. Last season with Boise wasn’t too kind on the 6′ 1″- 175 lb. southpaw in posting a 5.26 ERA and a 42:30 K:BB rate.
- After being selected in the 29th round in 2016, Milburn made it across two levels in his debut season. He was hit hard during his 5 appearances with NYPL Vermont, but didn’t issue any walks over 13 innings; and registered one K per inning (14 K’s). Finding himself in his first full season, the 6′ 3″- 210 lb. right-hander had a couple of rough months to begin 2017. He posted 6.75 ERA in April and made a slight improvement in May (5.13 ERA). It may be coming together for Milburn in June. He had his best outing by getting a career-high 12 K’s in 7 innings. In 4 appearances with 3 starts this month, Milburn is 1-1 with a 3.91 ERA. And after allowing an opponent BA of .300+ the last two months, he’s whittled it down to .193 in June, along with a stellar 0.96 WHIP.
