Five more returns today:

O'Koyea Dickson c/o Rancho Cucamonga Quakes in 21 days

Dickson was born and raised in San Francisco as a Giants fan with a father who played in the Giants' organization. Who was he drafted by? The Dodgers, of course! These dual loyalties don't seem to be fazing him on the field, however, as Dickson has hit his way to an impressive .283 / 8 / 51 line.




Tony Renda c/o Hagerstown Suns in 20 days

Awesome, personalized success from a local kid (went to Cal). He's hitting .291 this year with 28 doubles and 15 SBs.




Ji-Man Choi c/o Jackson Generals in 24 days

Sweet success from the Korean prospect. He had a great year in 2012, hitting .298 with 8 HRs, but has struggled a bit in AA.




He also wrote this on the SASE!! Major props to anyone who can translate for me!




Rico Noel c/o San Antonio Missions in 22 days

Awesome success from the Padres speedster. He swiped an amazing 90 bags last year and has racked up 37 SBs this year in AA.




Jamie Callahan c/o Lowell Spinners in 8 days

Just 18 years old, Callahan debuted this year for the Spinners with 5 shutout, 1 hit innings.

Just one return today:

Drew Heid c/o Arkansas Travelers in 10 days

Really nice success from the Angels' OF prospect! He was just promoted to AAA Salt-Lake after hitting .276 in AA, so he must have signed his mail just before leaving for his promotion.

6 returns today to start off the week, including my longest ever return!

---------------

Pedro Alvarez c/o Pirates in 330 days

Shocked to get this back! Great looking auto from the Bucs' All-Star who has already slugged 22 bombs this year.




Thomas Coyle c/o Bowling Green Hot Rods in 11 days

Nice return from the toolsy '12 draftee. In his first full season, Coyle has displayed his ability to hit (81 hits so far), some pop (6 HRs), and a whole lot of speed (24 SBs).




Paul Sewald c/o Savannah Sand Gnats in 11 days

Great success from the Mets' relief prospect. This year, he has crafted a 2.04 ERA with more than a strikeout per inning and a WHIP below 1.




Loek Van Mil c/o Pensacola Blue Wahoos in 11 days

Awesome return from the Dutch giant!!! At a shocking 7'1, Van Mil is the tallest pitcher ever in professional baseball. He is also a regular for the Netherlands national team.




Wade Hinkle c/o Burlington Bees in 21 days

Hinkle had a great pro debut last year with Orem, hitting .338 with 15 HRs, and has been solid this year with Burlington.




Chase Whitley c/o Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in 11 days

Nice return from the Yanks' AAA relief prospect.

That Van Mil auto could pass as a certified signature. Nice stuff as always!

Thanks!!!


--------

Wade Boggs c/o home in 25 days

Another success from the profilic Mr. Boggs! It's great that he takes the time to sign for his fans.




Anthony Bass c/o Tucson Padres in 12 days

Nice return from the Padres' hurler. He has split the past three seasons between the big league club and AAA.




Jeffrey "J.B." Wendelken c/o Greenville Drive in 12 days

Wendelken was drafted out of high school last year, and has done a nice job as a relief prospect so far.

Tanner Peters c/o Stockton Ports in 14 days

Awesome return from the A's SP prospect. Quite a unique background for his pro debut card, I asked him why they chose it and he said it's a real photo taken at his Spring Training complex!!




RJ Alvarez c/o Inland Empire 66ers in 13 days

Alvarez, wielding a 97 mph heater, has been a beast out of the pen this year in high A. He has compiled a 2.78 ERA over 35.2 innings with an astounding 56 strikeouts.

5 returns today!!!

------------

Brock Bond c/o San Jose Giants in 6 days

Lightning fast return from the Giants' farmhand. He told me he compares himself to a combination of Pete Rose and Marco Scutaro- which makes sense, because he hit .332 last year in AAA!




Lewis Brinson c/o Hickory Crawdads in 34 days

Glad to see this one back!! Brinson was 18 until May and has smashed 15 bombs this year, but incredibly that only ties him for third in HR total for the Crawdads this year. Brinson's teammate Ryan Rua has hit 28 and Joey Gallo has hit 26, #1 and #2 overall in the minors!!




Chase DeJong c/o Bluefield Blue Jays in 10 days

Awesome return from the Blue Jays' second round pick last year (81st overall). DeJong has the frame (6'4 185 lb), stuff (mid-90s fastball, curve and change), and work ethic to become a front-of-the-rotation starter!!




Randy Choate c/o Cardinals in 17 days

A lefty specialist, Choate has had a busy couple seasons, bouncing from the Marlins to the Dodgers to the Cardinals. He has been effective this year for the Cards, appearing in 31 games and allowing 14 hits to put together a 2.50 ERA.




Will Clark c/o Giants in 27 days

Fantastic success from a true Giants' legend. It's awesome that Will the Thrill takes the time to sign his fan mail, and I love the way his classic auto looks on the '13 Gypsy Queen design.

4 returns today.

-------------

Tom Koehler c/o New Orleans Zephyrs in 7 days

Very fast return from the Marlins' hurler. He started the year in Miami and notched his first career win against the Giants. However, he was recently sent to AAA, where he has been excellent over 4 starts.




Jorge Bonifacio c/o Wilmington Blue Rocks in 31 days

Awesome success from Emilio Bonifacio's brother!! Jorge has been very impressive this year with A+ Wilmington, hitting .324 in 38 games this year (he missed a month and a half due to injury).




Kyle Kubitza c/o Lynchburg Hillcats in 15 days

Nice return from the Braves' third round selection in 2011. He has had a good year in Lynchburg, compiling a .257 / 8 / 34 line so far.





Kyle Zimmer c/o Wilmington Blue Rocks in 35 days

My second month-long return from a Wilmington Blue Rock today! I was rooting for Zimmer big time going into the 2012 draft, as he was born in San Francisco and went to USF, where garnered scout attention as a corner infielder before claiming the mound his senior year. He was drafted 5th overall, yet has seen his ERA balloon up to 5.00 this year. He is still allowing less than a hit per inning and has a K/9 of 11, so his future still looks bright to me. (Sorry about the size of the scan, having some tech issues here)

Nice success on the Zimmer! I got him on a chrome card and a 4x6 photo earlier in the year.

7/13 return #1/8:

Danry Vasquez c/o West Michigan Whitecaps in 5 days

Crazy fast return from the Tigers' #4 prospect!!! Just 19 this year, Vasquez is settling in nicely to class A West Michigan, hitting .295 so far on the year.

7/13 return #2/8

Alex Wood c/o Braves in 5 days

Another lightning fast return, this one from the Braves' reliever. He was called up in May and has twirled 22.0 IP with 26 Ks, on his way to a 2.45 ERA.

7/13 return #3/8

Austin Wright c/o Reading Fightin Phils in 7 days

Awesome return, I love the inscription+personalization. Wright entered the 2013 season as the Phils' #10 prospect after a magnificent season in Clearwater, but has hit something of a speed bump in AA this year.

Fu-Lin Kuo c/o Tampa Yankees in 12 days

Nice return from the Yankees' Taiwanese prospect. Unfortunately, his 2013 season has been plagued by injury.

7/13 return #5/8

Jamie Callahan c/o Red Sox in 12 days

My second Callahan return. I sent this in a panic after I saw successes coming from Fenway. Not a bad auto to have two of, as Callahan is a very promising prospect!!

7/13 return #6/8

Jason Van Skike c/o Winston-Salem Dash in 17 days

Van Skike has had an odd year so far in high A, mostly pitching in long relief but also making 6 starts scattered over the past few months. He has been very good overall, crafting a 2.60 ERA in Winston-Salem so far.

7/13 return #7/8

Michael Reed c/o Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in 19 days

Awesome return from the Brewers' CF speedster prospect. A few impressive figures from his year so far: .295 BA, 21 SBs, and most shocking of all: 9 triples!!!

7/13 return #8/8

Zack Cox c/o Jacksonville Suns in 8 days

Last season, the Marlins and Cards swapped Cox for Mujica, and Cox entered this season ranked the #10 Marlins prospect. He must have signed my card on his way out the door, as he was just promoted to AAA!
