The latest batch: TTM #34/35
Walker Weickel c/o Fort Wayne TinCaps in 13 days
The Padres' selected Weickel last year with the 29th overall pick and reeled him into their system with a staggering $2 million signing bonus (the slot value was just $925,000). IMO they are botching his development, as they had him skip short season ball and now he is getting pummeled in low A. He was high school teammates with Reds' 2012 first round pick Jesse Winker, and told me that when Winker batted against him he grounded into a DP! Bragging rights to Weickel haha.
