2 returns today:

Shane Broyles c/o Tri-City Dust Devils in 33 days

Nice return from the Rockies' 2012 draftee. Broyles has been excellent in 11 games in relief for Tri-City this year (5-0, 0.81 ERA over 22.1 innings with 38 strikeouts) but has stuggled in Asheville (a hitter's park).




Jonathon Crawford c/o Connecticut Tigers in 12 days

Awesome success from the Tigers' first rounder in 2013 and their #2 prospect (behind Castellanos). He has great pure stuff highlighted by a fastball that can touch 98 mph and a sharp breaking ball. Crawford was sent to short-season CT with a strict pitch limit and thrived in his 8 starts, notching a 1.89 ERA with 21 K's in 19 innings.

3 returns today (sorry for the low brightness!):

Cody Eppley c/o Rochester Red Wings in 62 days

Eppley was originally a top relief prospect, posting an ERA under 3 and a K/9 over 9 in each of his first three seasons. He was very reliable for the Yankees last year, but has not been successful in 2013, and was just released from the Twins' AAA affiliate.




Ben McMahan c/o Brevard County Manatees in 11 days

Nice return + PD addition from the former Gator and current Brewers prospect. He hit .315/7/25 in his first pro season, and .287/15/68 in his sophomore season. He also has some speed, swiping around 10 bases per season. If he can stay healthy, he could end up in the OF in Miller Park in the next few years.




Mitch Haniger c/o Brevard County Manatees in 82 days

Awesome return from one of the Brewers' three first round picks in 2012 and their #11 prospect. He's having a great first season, displaying all 5 tools and earning a midseason callup. Well worth the wait!

Thanks, I like it too! Some of the Manatees must have signed their mail together; 2/3 of today's returns were from them!

4 more TTMs today!!

David Buchanan c/o Lehigh Valley IronPigs in 12 days

Awesome return from the Phillies' SP prospect and a great PD set addition. Buchanan earned a promotion to AAA after pitching well in his 130.2 innings in AA. Since then, he is 4-1 in 5 starts with a 2.16 ERA over 33.1 innings. He has logged at least 6 innings in each of his AAA starts!




Josh Turley c/o West Michigan Whitecaps in 12 days

Sweet success from the Baylor product and one of the best Tigers' relief prospects. He is having a crazy good year from the 'pen, going 8-3 with a 1.95 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 73.2 innings. Love the personalization!




Austin Ross c/o Wisconsin Timber Rattlers in 15 days

Nice return from the former 2010 draftee out of LSU. Ross' pro career has been stifled by injury, and his only full season came in 2011. This year, he has found success with the Rattlers, notching a 2.58 ERA in 9 starts with a 2-0 record.




Ben Guez c/o Toledo Mud Hens in 14 days

Very cool return from the Tigers' AAA OF and Team Israel veteran. He was typically been a hit-for-average kind of guy in the minors, hitting close to .300 with 10+ steals in a typical year. In 2013, however, he has found his power stroke, and has clubbed 17 big flies so far. Hope he makes it to Detroit soon!

Nice stuff, as always!

Thanks! Haha I totally agree about his auto. It's crazy how some pro baseball players have autos that are just a couple loops. It's funny too because he actually wrote a really nice response to my note, so it's not like he was rushing!

3 returns today, all MLB!

Jordy Mercer c/o Pirates in 11 days

Awesome, quick return from the Bucs' rookie SS and hopefully soon-to-be NL Central champ. He is having a very solid rookie season, hitting .275 with 16 doubles and 6 homers in 87 games.




Neil Walker c/o Pirates in 388 days

WOW! Really wasn't expecting this one back. Really awesome return from the Bucs' 2nd baseman and a crucial piece of their playoff push. His best MLB year came in 2010, when he hit .296 with 29 doubles and 12 homers in 110 games. Glad to add another GQ!!




Cory Gearrin c/o Braves in 56 days

Nice return from the Braves' submarine reliever. He had a great 2012, notchign a 1.80 ERA over 20 innings with 20 strikeouts. He has been solid this year as well.

With Sunday and Labor Day, it's been a while!! 4 returns from today to share:


Justin Nicolino c/o Jacksonville Suns in 17 days

Awesome return (my third I believe) from the Marlins' #3 prospect and the #59 overall. He's having another great year, and I'm glad to add his Pro Debut auto to my set.




Zack Cox c/o Jacksonville Suns in 17 days

Nice return from the former first rounder and another Pro Debut addition!




Devon Travis c/o Lakeland Flying Tigers in 19 days

Sick return from the former FSU Seminole, current Tigers' #12 prospect. He's having an insane first full season, earning a midseason promotion hitting .351 with 16 HRs, 76 RBI, and 22 SBs over both levels. He also sports a K% of just 12.6!! The inscription/personalization is perhaps my best ever, he seems like an awesome guy.




Jorge Soler c/o Cubs ST in 19 days

Sweet return from the #26 prospect in the game! The Cuban native was inked to a nine year contract with the Cubs last year. He has the potential to become the next Puig, but saw his 2013 season cut short with a shin injury, and he is now rehabbing in AZ.

Yeah!! Epic Soler, I've been sitting on a few bowman platinums for him lately and I was planning on sending one to AFL hope he signs! I remember following him even before he was signed, like since early 2012 when he defected

The inscriptions on the Travis are awesome. The Soler was also great.

Thanks!! I sent it to Arizona, where he is rehabbing. I don't think he is currently affiliated with a MiLB team, but he will be in the AFL soon!

Nice! So far he seems to be a good signer, but the flood of mail he will get in AFL and especially spring training may deter him.

Thanks! I love the inscriptions too, and was pumped to get the Soler back.



TTM'ing can be crazy sometimes: yesterday I got 0 returns and today I tied my all-time high with a whopping thirteen (13) returns!!! Pictures coming soon, so stay tuned

9/5 TTM #1/13

Alex Meyer c/o New Britain Rock Cats in 82 days

Sick return from the Twins' #1 prospect whose name isn't Miguel Sano or Byron Buxton (#32 overall). Meyer stands at 6'9 and although he missed a few months this year due to injury, he has compiled a 2.99 ERA with 100 K's in 78.1 innings. He should arrive in the Twin Cities some time next year!

Wow 13? I've yet to reach 2 digits myself (or have I?).
Can't wait.

9/5 TTM #2/13

Alex Yarbrough c/o Inland Empire 66ers in 10 days

Excellent return from the Ole Miss alum and Angels' #8 prospect. He had an amazing year, hitting .313 with 32 doubles, 10 triples, 11 homers, 80 RBI, and 14 SBs! Very disappointed about the crease, but this is luckily the first bad USPS situation I've had in a very long time.

Something tells me you will next year if not in the next couple weeks
Are you past 50 on Pro Debuts yet?

9/5 TTM #3/13

Derek Holland c/o Rangers in 83 days

Sweet return from one of the Rangers' backbones in their rotation. He is having a great year, going 9-7 with a 3.07 ERA over 184.2 innings. I got a '12 gypsy queen signed by him in the exact same place, just below the picture!

I just counted my signed PD cards and right now I'm at 57. So I've gotten 55 successful returns.

And awesome Holland. Gotta try him next year.

Wow, awesome set progress! If I had to guess, I'd say I'm up to around 70-80 2012 Pro Debuts. However, at the end of last year I probably only had about 40.

Thanks! You might have a chance with Holland still because the MLB season lasts another month or so (longer for the Rangers probably).

9/5 TTM #4/13

Gioskar Amaya c/o Kane County Cougars in 86 days

Nice return from the Cubs' #19 prospect. After three great seasons in DSL, AZL, and short-season, Amaya had a solid full season debut this year.

9/5 TTM #5/13

Grant Buckner c/o Winston-Salem Dash in 19 days

Originally a 2011 draftee out of WVU, Buckner gained some attention his first season, hitting .311 with a .468 slugging pct. This year, his slash line is .254/10/62 in high A, and he should advance to AA next year. Nice PD addition!

9/5 TTM #6/13

Rio Ruiz c/o Quad Cities River Bandits in 38 days

Awesome return from the Astros' #15 prospect (ie #5 prospect in most other systems). He is having a great first full year, hitting .260 with 12 homers and 63 RBI, as well as 12 steals.

Nice stuff! Sucks about the crease on the Yarbrough. I was going to send him a refractor earlier this year but decided not to. I think he'll be a stud, though.

Hopefully we'll see his auto in Bowman Chrome this year.

9/5 TTM #7/13

Rob Kaminsky c/o GCL Cardinals in 45 days

Awesome return from the Cardinals' first rounder this year and their #9 prospect. In the GCL, he has displayed impressive fastball velocity and has punched out 28 in 22 innings. I love the picture of him with his Koufax card!
