The latest batch: TTM #10/35

Edwin Escobar c/o Richmond Flying Squirrels in 14 days

Very excited to add another top Giants' prospect to the collection! Escobar is a durable lefty with a unique delivery (he told me he'd compare himself to Madison Bumgarner). Even though scouts think he can continue to improve his offspeed pitches, he has been excellent this year, first with the San Jose Giants and then with the AA Richmond Flying Squirrels. Overall this year, he has posted a 2.95 ERA over 109.2 innings with 128 strikeouts. Possibly the most underrated Giants' prospect!

Erich Weiss c/o Jamestown Jammers in 13 days

Great return from yet another former Team USA regular, and a 2013 Pirates' draftee. He wrote me that one of his goals this year is to hit over .320, and he seems to be doing well with that so far, finishing August with a .377 avg. Love the personalization+inscription!!

The latest batch: TTM #12/35

Evan Scribner c/o Sacramento River Cats in 9 days

Another one of my favorite recent returns, the inscription is just so nice. Scribner was a key piece of the division champs' squad last year, appearing in 30 regular season games and posting a 2.55 ERA. This year, he was sent to AAA mid season and has been lights out, punching out 45 over 36.1 innings with a 2.48 ERA. Of all the quirky A's clubhouse traditions, Scribner says the Homerun Tunnel is his favorite!

Fernelys Sanchez c/o GCL Braves in 9 days

Beautiful auto from the young Braves' prospect. Sanchez was sidelined with an injury for the months leading to the 2012 MLB draft, so he slipped to the 16th round where the Braves' were happy to claim him. As a young, toolsy, switch-hitting OF, he has a very high ceiling and it will be interesting to see how he does in the minors!

Jimmy Nelson c/o Nashville Sounds in 8 days

Fantastic return from the Brewers' #1 prospect. He has a very strong repertoire and is having a very impressive season in AA and AAA, notching a 3.17 ERA with 125 K's over 125 innings. He should be in Miller Park before long!

The latest batch: TTM #15/35

Joe Kelly c/o Cardinals in 60 days

As a Giants' fan, when I think of Joe Kelly I think of the 2012 NLCS Game 7, when he was on the mound and Hunter Pence hit a banana curve line drive that fooled SS Pete Kozma and allowed 3 runs to score. This year, Kelly has been very good as a starter and as a reliever, posting a 2.98 ERA over 66.1 innings.

The latest batch: TTM #16/35

Joe Wendle c/o Carolina Mudcats in 6 days

Crazy fast return from one of the Indians' most underrated prospects. Wendle had an impressive pro debut last year in Short-Season, hitting .327. This year, he double jumped to high A Carolina, where he has shown off all kinds of tools: a .300/12/50 line with .522 slugging and even 9 SBs.

John Danks c/o White Sox in 367 days

My longest return to date: over a year! This is my second Danks Gypsy Queen auto, so if anyone wants to trade I would be happy to, just let me know.

Jordan John c/o West Michigan Whitecaps in 6 days

Very fast return from the Tigers' 2012 draftee. John has been impressive this year, going 7-4 with a 3.06 ERA over 98.1 innings.

Jose Cisnero c/o Astros in 19 days

Sweet return from the Astros' reliever. I love the inscription, I guess that's my reward for writing the notes in Spanish (it basically translates to "Best Regards"). Cisnero has logged 43.2 innings in the majors this year in his rookie season.

The latest batch: TTM #20/35 (still 15 more to go!)

Josh Martin c/o Carolina Mudcats in 14 days

Solid return from the Indians' 10th round pick in 2012 out of Samford. Martin, a relief prospect, pitched very well for class A Lake County to open the 2013 season, with a 3.38 ERA and 47 K's in 40 innings. Since being promoted to high A, he has been a bit more inconsistent.

Hmm that's weird, same thing happened for Sardinas, right? I guess some guys go through patches where they don't sign, then later they pick it up again.

The latest batch: TTM #21/35

Justin Maxwell c/o Astros in 50 days

Awesome return from the new KC Royal. The envelope is stamped from Minneapolis, so my guess is that Maxwell went through his mail during the Royals-Twins series from 7/29-8/1 (I got my card back on 8/3).

Kevan Smith c/o Winston-Salem Dash in 14 days

Awesome return + great addition to the '12 PD set. Smith is having a very good year in high A, posting a .269 / 9 / 60 line so far.

Lenny Linksy c/o Charlotte Stone Crabs in 16 days

Awesome success from the Rays' second rounder in 2011 and a promising relief prospect. He is having a solid year in high A Charlotte, and has nearly doubled his K/9 from last year. Linksy had a ridiculous stretch of four straight appearances this season (7/15, 7/19, 7/23, 7/28) where he pitched a total of 12 innings and took the win in all four (as a reliever)!!

The latest batch: TTM #24/35

Luke Jackson c/o Myrtle Beach Pelicans in 30 days

Phenomenal success from the Rangers' #9 prospect in a system overflowing with talent. A former 2010 first round pick, Jackson has put it all together this year, crafting a 2.23 ERA with 114 K's in 109 innings. He was just promoted to AA, so he must have signed these for me on his way out the door. His auto on the BC is massive, the "J" pretty much goes top-to-bottom on the card!

Yeah, for some guys, you just have to keep sending if you're unlucky the first time. Hope you get yours back soon.

Thanks on the Maxwell! I think it looks good with the thick blue.

Madison Boer c/o Cedar Rapids Kernels PO Box in 35 days

Not only is this guy a pro at pitching- he knows how to sign autos too! Nothing better than silver on a dark background. Boer was the Twins 2nd round pick in 2011 out of Oregon. This year, he was converted to a reliever and was rocky in high A but has been stellar in low A.

aww so cool! I just sent to him recently. I'm hoping him and Cisnero will get back to me soon

I think jackson being at Frisco now, and with Cisnero being in Houston you're getting them faster then me since I am way out in CT and you're closer in CA. i suspect i'll get them this week, i'm not sure what happened with Sardinas but I'll just try him ip in sprint training

Michael Goodnight c/o Mahoning Valley Scrappers in 9 days

Nice return from the Indians' relief prospect. He told me about a hilarious clubhouse prank where they wrapped one of their teammates' clothing in saran wrap and it took him 30 minutes to remove all of it! I'm hoping this guy pads his stock and becomes a closer- I don't there's any better name for a closer than "Goodnight"!!

Yeah that makes sense. It could also just be bad luck if we sent then more than a few weeks apart.

Patrick Leonard c/o Bowling Green Hot Rods in 14 days

There was a discrepancy of about 11 days between the stamped date on my SASE and the date I received this (usually it's like 2 days difference), which tells me that this got caught at the bottom of the mailman's bag and he didn't notice it until now. I hope that doesn't happen too often...
Anyways, Leonard came to the Rays' system in the Wil Myers trade, and entered the season as their #20 prospect. He has struggled overall since then, but has managed 23 doubles, 8 HRs, and 51 RBI.

Ryan Cavan c/o San Jose Giants in 37 days

Awesome return from the Giants' farmhand. He opened the season with a red hot stint in the AZL, hitting .526 (20-38) and is hitting .325 overall this year.

Scott Savastano c/o Tacoma Rainiers in 9 days

Great success from the AAA first baseman. He told me about a cruel yet hilarious prank that the team pulled on Rich Poythress- they packed up all of his stuff in his locker and told him to go see the manager (he thought he was being released)!!!
