Mitchell Osnowitz, a 6-5 righty from Illinois who has a high 90s fastball and is pitching for Salem. My son caught his bullpens last fall and summer as he worked with a scout/coach on a second and third pitch. He was drafted a few years ago by the Rockies as a third baseman. They converted him to a pitcher, but that didn't work out, so he took a year off to regroup and work on a change-up and curve. He's old for single-A, 25, but I love these "never give up the dream" stories.Anyone have any sleeper prospects they follow?
I wonder if they'll try him at reliever first, to see how his stuff plays in short stints.My sleeper prospect for this year is - or I should say will be - Trey Ball, RIGHTFIELDER! I'd give him a half year pitching, and if he's still not missing bats and walking too many, make the switch to outfield
