  1. Keep your eyes on Albert Suarez. He is coming back from TJ surgery but every time I've seen him pitch this summer he cruises at 94 mph. He also has a big, athletic body.

    I met him at a social event and he is the very nicest young man who also is doing very well with his English language skills. Easy guy to root for talent wise and peronality wise.
