    Mike Katz' level of play has been so consistently good that I think we start to take for granted what he has accomplished so far this year, being named one of only fifteen players on Baseball America's Midseason AA Team, as well as, being named to USA Baseball's Golden Spikes Midseason Watch List. Congrats Mike!!

    His accomplishments this season are even more incredible when you consider the pitch sequences he is now seeing. Not only has he been walked a bunch lately, he rarely sees a fastball anymore, yet still continues to put up stellar numbers. He has had a remarkable season, and is sure to be rewarded in the June draft.

    Everyone is pitching around him. Losing Lindemuth hurts because he was on base a lot. Tough to walk Katz with men on base. He just needs to be real selective with his at bats. Once we get to Charleston and post season teams will have to pitch to him. Runs will be at a premium.
