Last few days: return #1/11

Cody Hall c/o Richmond Flying Squirrels in 10 days

Awesome return from one of Giants' best relief prospects. Hall is having an insane year, tallying a 4-0 record with a 1.27 ERA over 56.2 innings with 73 strikeouts. He has allowed just 27 hits and 15 walks for an insane 0.74 WHIP. Hope to see him in SF soon!

Last few days: return #2/11

Edwin Jackson c/o Cubs in 9 days

Awesome return + addition to the GQ set from the MLB starting pitching veteran and 2011 WS Champ.

Last few days: return #3/11

Greg Holland c/o Royals in 58 days

Awesome success from the most underrated closer in baseball. Holland has racked up 34 saves this year with a glittering 1.44 ERA and 78 K's in 50 innings, while allowing just 31 hits (.176 BAA). I love the look of the blue auto on the '13 heritage.

Last few days: return #4/11

Keith Hessler c/o Visalia Rawhide in 6 days

Lightning fast return and a great addition to the PD set. Hessler was originally a 28th round pick but made a name for himself with a very impressive first two seasons. This year, he was converted to a starter and his ERA has ballooned in the hitter friendly Cal League. He told me about a hilarious prank where the players freeze another player's clothing into an ice block!

The last few days: return #5/11

Kyle Hald c/o Palm Beach Cardinals in 7 days

Awesome return from the Belgian-born Hald and another addition to the set. He had a breakout year last year over two levels with a 3.36 ERA and 115 strikeouts in 136.2 innings, but has struggled overall this year in the Flordia State League.

Last few days: #6/11

Logan Bawcom c/o Tacoma Rainiers in 10 days

Awesome return from the M's reliever they acquired in the Brandon League trade. He had an incredible year last year with a 2.00 ERA and 75 K's in 63 innings. This year, he has been equally impressive in AAA and seems ready for possibly a September callup!

Last few days: return #7/11

Mark Appel c/o Tri-City Valleycats in 51 days

SICK return from the 2013 #1 overall draft pick. The Stanford grad has conquered two minor league levels so far and will be in Houston likely by next year. Overall, one of my favorite returns this year!

Thanks, he has a great auto!! I hope you get yours back tomorrow.

Last few days: return #8/11

Mason Katz c/o State College Spikes in 8 days

Awesome return from the LSU grad and 2013 Cardinals' draftee. Katz had a phenomenal career at 1B for the Tigers, batting .341 with 33 HRs and 180 RBI in his four years. Awesome inscription as well!!

Last few days: return #9/11

Sean Nolin c/o New Hampshire Fisher Cats in 23 days

Awesome return from the Jays' #5 prospect. He has an all-around strong repertoire and a very good feel for pitching, which should allow him to settle into a middle of the rotation role in Toronto. He just earned a promotion to AAA, and must have brought his mail with him!

Last few days: #10/11

Tyler Gonzales c/o GCL Blue Jays in 59 days

Awesome success from the Blue Jays' 1st round pick in 2012. A prep arm from Texas, Gonzales has a live fastball that sits comfortably in the 93-95 range, but he can crank it up to 97 when needed. He also has a wipeout slider that sits in the mid 80s, which scouts say is one of the best sliders of the 2012 draft class. He still needs a few years to develop, but once he's ready he could be a major asset to the Blue Jays' rotation. He even sleeved+toploaded the cards himself, which was a very nice touch!

Last few days: return #11/11

Zach Borenstein c/o Inland Empire 66ers in 8 days

Sweet return from the Angels' slugger and their #15 prospect: the 2013 California League MVP!! A former 23rd round pick in 2011, he never really got much attention from scouts until this year. His .330/25/89 line places him 1st/2nd/5th in the league. I love the inscription!!

Similar to that, I have a story to tell.

My cousin dated the guy who is Mr. Met (was, and is, commercials featuring him) for a few months last year. He would sometimes go out with the players after the game and one night, Justin Turner was buying everyone at the bar drinks. Just before they left, he turned to him and said, "I better not be starting tomorrow, I'm gonna be too hung-over."

Awesome! This is the second success I've seen from him the last couple days. I sent him a few photos around 50 days ago, I hope I get a return soon.

Great successes! Borenstein's inscription seems really heartfelt. I love it.

I sure hope so. He'd definitely be one of my best successes. I just wish I had a card to send him.

Good luck guys!! He does seem to be catching up. I've seen about 20 successes in the past 2 days on various sites

Nice returns. Seeing your posts make me wish I'd picked up more '12 Heritage Minors and '12 Bowman cards.

Thanks! Those are both great series for TTM

It always kind of annoys me how that set comes out right after the MiLB season ends haha. Good fodder for next year though

5 returns today:

JR Graham c/o Mississippi Braves in 26 days

Awesome return from the Braves' #2 prospect. He had a very impressive year in 2012 over two levels (12-2, 2.80 ERA in 148 IP) but has only managed 8 starts this year due to injury. With a fastball that can touch 97, Graham should end up in Atlanta soon!




Bryson Myles c/o Carolina Mudcats in 25 days

Awesome return and another great Pro Debut addition. Myles is having a very good year in high A, hitting .283/7/49 with 14 SBs.




Kyle Simon c/o Reading Fightin' Phils in 74 days

Nice return from the Phillies' relief prospect who was acquired from the Orioles in the Jim Thome deal last year.




Johendi Jiminian c/o Tri-City Dust Devils in 11 days

Awesome return from the young Dominican hurler. Johendi is having a very impressive year in short-season, notching a 3.08 ERA over 73 innings pitched (13 starts).




Chad Rogers c/o Louisville Bats in 13 days

Very cool return here. Just a couple weeks after being drafted by the Reds in 2010, Rogers was out surfing and was attacked by a shark. He managed to get back on the field for the 2011 season and actually still enjoys surfing! As an homage to this experience, his twitter handle is "@SharkRogers" (hence the inscription) and he even goes shark fishing in the offseason. This year, Mr. Rogers earned a AAA promotion after posting a 2.20 ERA in his 13 starts in AA.
