The Auburn Baseball Farm Report: Part Two

By | Auburn University News | No Comments

milb logoThere are currently two former Auburn players that are in the major leagues, Josh Donaldson and Grant Dayton, but there are ten former Tigers that are working their way up through the minor leagues. Unlike professional football and basketball, a contract does not guarantee big money with the big boys. After being drafted and/or signed, a player is assigned to a minor league affiliate for the major league club that holds their contract- single A is the lowest level, followed by single-A advanced, double-A and triple A. If you haven’t read the first Auburn Baseball Farm Report, click here to view it. Here’s a look at the rest of the former Tigers in the minor leagues that are working towards getting a call-up to the majors:

 

Dan GamacheDan Gamache was drafted out of Auburn in the 6th round of the 2011 MLB Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Gamache signed with the Pirates organization after his junior year at Auburn, a season in which he hit .299 with five homers and 29 RBI. The Auburn third baseman’s sophomore season grabbed the most attention from fans and scouts when he hit a remarkable .365 with eight home runs and 37 RBI. After spending part of 2011 in at a short season team, Gamache was initially placed at the Pirates single-A affiliate in Charleston, West Virginia to begin the 2012 season. Gamache made it to the Pirates triple-A team in Indianapolis, Indiana to begin the 2015 season, but was released by the team in September of 2016. On December 15th, 2016, the Minnesota Twins signed the free agent to a minor league contract and assigned him to their double-A team in Chattanooga, Tennessee to begin the 2017 season. Gamache is currently batting .207 with 29 RBI.

 

Anfernee GrierA name that many Auburn baseball fans recognize is Anfernee Grier. Grier, who was liked by many MLB scouts for his speed, was a Collective Bargaining Agreement pick (between 1st and 2nd rounds) in the 2016 MLB Draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The speedy center fielder batted .336 with 12 homers and 41 RBI in his junior and final season at Auburn before signing with the Diamondbacks. After being drafted, Grier played rookie ball then was placed at the Diamondbacks Single-A affiliate in Geneva, Illinois to begin the 2017 season. In his first full season in the minor leagues, the Russell County native is batting .271 with 14 RBI and 14 stolen bases.

 

Stephen KohlscheenStephen Kohlscheen came to Auburn for a year after transferring from Cowley College in Arkansas City, Kansas before being drafted in the 2010 MLB Draft. In his one and only year at Auburn, Kohlscheen held a 1-0 record 6.49 ERA in 17 appearances (2 of them starts). Kohlscheen was drafted in the 45th round of the 2010 draft by the Seattle Mariners, then was assigned to the Mariners single-A team in Clinton, Iowa to start the 2011 season. On July 31st, 2014, the Mariners traded Kohlscheen to the San Diego Padres where he was placed on their triple-A team in El Paco, Texas. After struggling in triple-A, the Padres sent the right hander down to their double-A team in San Antonio, Texas in June of 2015. Kohlscheen was then released by the Padres on March 26, 2016, but just three days later, the Milwaukee Brewers signed Kohlscheen and assigned him to their double-A team in Biloxi, Mississippi. Kohlscheen was invited to Brewers spring training before the 2017 MLB season, then began the 2017 season at the Brewers triple-A affiliate in Colorado Springs, Colorado. So far this year, Kohlscheen holds a 1-0 record and a 5.68 ERA in Colorado Springs.

 

Trey WingenterTrey Wingenter was drafted out of Auburn after his junior season in the 17th round of the 2015 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres. In his junior season at Auburn, Wingenter posted a 1-6 record and a 4.28 ERA before signing with the Padres. After playing in a Padres rookie league in 2015, The Madison, Alabama native was assigned to the Mariners single-A advanced team in Lake Elsinore, California to begin the 2016 season. Wingenter is currently pitching for the Padre’s double-A team in San Antonio, Texas and has a 2-0 record and a 2.28 ERA so far this season.

The Auburn Baseball Farm Report: Part One

By | Auburn University News | No Comments

milb logoThere are currently two former Auburn players that are in the major leagues, Josh Donaldson and Grant Dayton, but there are nine former Tigers that are working their way up through the minor leagues. Unlike professional football and basketball, a contract does not guarantee big money with the big boys. After being drafted and/or signed, a player is assigned to a minor league affiliate for the major league club that holds their contract- single A is the lowest level, followed by single-A advanced, double-A and triple A. Here’s a look at the former Tigers in the minor leagues that are working towards getting a call-up to the majors:

 

Justin CampFollowing his senior year at Auburn, right handed pitcher Justin Camp was drafted in the 37th round of the 2016 MLB Draft by the Kansas City Royals. Camp pitched all four years at Auburn from 2013-2016 and was most impressive as a junior, when he posted a 2.33 ERA in 28 appearances out of the bullpen. In his senior year, Camp transitioned into a starting role and recorded a 3-5 record and a 4.43 ERA in 14 starts. The Royals initially assigned Camp to their single-A affiliate in Lexington, Kentucky to begin the 2017 season, then promoted him to their single-A advanced team in Wilmington, Delaware. So far this season, the Decatur native holds a 0-0 record and a 1.54 ERA.

 

Trey Cochran-GillIn 2014, Trey Cochran-Gill, who is a native of Tallassee, was drafted out of Auburn in the 17th round by the Seattle Mariners. Cochran-Gill left Auburn after his junior year to sign with the Mariners in 2014, a year in which the right hander posted a 3.41 ERA in 28 relief appearances. In 2015, the Mariners promoted Cochran-Gill from their single-A team in Bakersfield, California to their double-A in Jackson, Mississippi, then to their triple-A affiliate in Tacoma, Washington for one game. However, the Mariners traded Trey to the Oakland Athletics organization on December 8th, 2015 where he was placed on the roster for their double-A team in Midland, Texas and held a 4-5 record and a 3.07 ERA. After starting this season on the disabled list, the Mariners sent Cochran-Gill down to single-A ball in Stockton, Indiana.

 

Garrett CooperAnother Tiger working his way through the minor leagues is Garrett Cooper. Cooper transferred to Auburn from El Camino Community College to play his junior and senior years at Auburn. In his senior year, the Auburn first baseman hit .354 with seven homers and 37 RBI. His outstanding play earned him a 6th round selection by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2013 MLB Draft. The Brewers initially placed him at their single-A team in Oshkosh, Wisconsin after signing with the team, but Cooper has worked his way through the Brewers farm system to the Brewers triple-A team in Colorado Springs, Colorado where he is currently knocking the cover off the ball hitting .362 with 11 homers and 56 RBI.

 

Damek TomschaAnother corner infielder working his way to the show is third baseman Damek Tomscha. Tomscha transferred to Auburn from Iowa Western Community College to play his junior and senior seasons. In his senior season in 2014, Tomscha hit .313 with five home runs and 29 RBI. He was then drafted that summer by the 17th round by the Philadelphia Phillies and assigned to the Phillies single-A team in Lakewood, New Jersey. At the beginning of the 2016 season, Tomscha was promoted to the single-A advanced team in Clearwater, Florida. Tomscha is still in Clearwater and is currently hitting .296 with seven homers and 32 RBI this season.

 

Joshua PalaciosFormer Auburn center fielder Joshua Palacios was drafted in the 4th round of the 2016 MLB Draft by the Toronto Blue Jays. Palavios only played one year at Auburn after transferring from San Jacinto College, then left Auburn after he was drafted to sign with the Blue Jays organization. He was first assigned to the Blue Jays single-A affiliate in Lansing, Michigan and after some brief stints in Blue Jays rookie leagues, returned to Lansing to begin his 2017 campaign. This year for the Lugnuts, Palacios is hitting a tough .195 with 14 RBI.

 

The road to the show is not always an easy one, but be sure to keep an eye out for these Auburn baseball alumni in the majors in the coming years. On Friday, five more Auburn players that are currently in the minor leagues will be in the spotlight in “The Auburn Baseball Farm Report: Part Two” right here on espnau.com

Four Auburn Players Drafted in the MLB Draft

By | Auburn University News | No Comments

The 2017 first year player draft is in the books and four Auburn Tigers will get the opportunity to play at the next level. Keegan Thompson, Jonah Todd, Daniel Robert, and Gabe Klobosits were selected in this year’s MLB Draft. If Thompson and Todd decide to decline the offer, they may return to Auburn because they still have NCAA eligibility but both are expected to sign with the team they were drafted by.

 

Keegan ThompsonAuburn red shirt junior pitcher Keegan Thompson was the first Tiger to get drafted, as he went in the third round to the 2016 World Series champion Chicago Cubs. Thompson became the 105th overall pick in the draft, and most likely would have gone sooner he wouldn’t have had Tommy John Surgery in 2016. Thompson was drafted last year by the Detroit Tigers in the 33rd round, but declined it to pitch one more year at Auburn where he finished the year with a 7-4 record an a 2.41 ERA. The Tigers right hander impressed scouts with a great curveball as well as two-seam and four-seam fastballs, with his four-seamer touching 95 mph. He is described by many MLB scouts as a “mature and polished” pitcher and as a 22 year old developed college pitcher, he should go through the minors quickly.

 

Jonah ToddAfter Thompson, Auburn junior center fielder Jonah Todd got the call in the 6th round when he was drafted 175th overall by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Todd just finished his junior year at Auburn after transferring from Marion Military Academy following his sophomore year where he was given the ACCC Defensive Player of the Year honors. This season at Auburn, Todd hit .376 with 37 RBI. The Tiger center fielder is expected to sign with the Angels rather than return to Auburn for his senior year.

 

Daniel RobertIn the 21st round, the Texas Rangers selected Auburn senior first baseman Daniel Robert. Robert was selected 644th overall as a right handed pitcher. He primarily played first base for the Tigers this year hitting .290 with 42 RBI this year, but he did make six relief appearances in which he recorded a 2.16 ERA in 8.1 total innings with 11 strikeouts. The Rangers will obviously attempt to develop him in their farm system as a pitcher rather than a position player, and he has the size to do so (Robert stands 6-5 and 236 pounds).

 

Gabe KlobositsThe final Tiger that was selected in the draft was Auburn senior pitcher Gabe Klobosits. Klobosits was taken in the 30th round by the Washington Nationals. He was taken 1093rd overall and recorded a 5.18 ERA this season in 17 appearances, four of them starts. Like Robert, Klobosits has the size to be a major leaguer (Klobosits stands 6-7 and weighs 249 pounds).

 

Seven SEC Players Get Drafted in Round One of The 2017 MLB Draft

Seven SEC Baseball Players Get Drafted in Round One of the 2017 MLB Draft

By | Auburn University News | No Comments

               The SEC had an impressive showing in Monday night’s Major League Baseball draft as 11 players from SEC schools were drafted in rounds one and two, including eight in the first round. Kyle Wright was the first SEC player to be drafted, going fifth overall in the first round to the Atlanta Braves. The hard throwing right hander went undrafted out of Buckhorn High School in New Market, Alabama, but impressed scouts after his college career at Vanderbilt and became a certain top ten draft choice. Wright logged a 5-6 record and a 3.40 ERA this year at Vanderbilt, and throws a fastball that tops out at 97 mph, a slider, a curveball, and a changeup. Commodore pitchers are defiantly no stranger in the draft, as seven Vandy pitchers have been taken in the past ten MLB Drafts.

 

               Clarke Schmidt, a right handed pitcher from South Carolina was drafted by the New York Yankees later in round one. Schmidt was taken 16th overall in the draft, which is much higher than expected following his early leave this season to have Tommy John surgery. In the nine games that Schmidt was able to play in this year for the Gamecocks, he put up a 4-2 record and a 1.34 ERA. He features a fastball that tops at 96, a slider, a curveball, a heavy sinker, and a changeup. Schmidt’s teammate and fellow pitcher Wil Crowe was drafted in the second round by the Washington Nationals.

 

                Right after Schmidt and going 17th overall to the Seattle Mariners was Kentucky first baseman Evan White. White is not known for his power, but impressed scouts with his plate disciple and ability to hit for average. White hit an implausible .373 average with 10 home runs and 41 RBI this year for the Wildcats. He also joins Chad Green (Brewers, 1996 MLB Draft) as the only Wildcat position players to get drafted in the first round.

 

                Alex Faedo was drafted right after White at 18th overall to the Detroit Tigers. Faedo is a right handed pitcher from Florida that was expected to be a top five overall pick before requiring knee surgery prior to his junior year. Faedo had a rocky start to his 2017 season at Florida, but has still been very effective for the Gators this season with a 7-2 record and a 3.55 ERA. Faedo’s college career is still not in the books however, as Faedo and the Gators take on TCU in round one in Omaha starting Sunday night.

 

                Following Faedo, Jaren Kendall was the next SEC player selected going 23rd overall to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Kendall was selected in the 30th round of the 2014 MLB Draft by the Boston Red Sox, but Kendall declined to attend Vanderbilt. The Commodore outfielder was by far the best “five-tool” player available out of college. Kendall hit .307 with 15 home runs and 53 RBI this season at Vanderbilt.

 

                Right after Kendall was Tanner Houck, who went 24th overall to the Boston Red Sox from Missouri. Houck developed into a very effective right handed pitcher at Missouri, and has become only the fourth player in program history to go in the first round. He is often compared to another well-known Missouri Tiger, Max Scherzer who is currently the ace of the Washington Nationals. Houck has an impressive fastball with sinking action that tops at 98 mph to go along with a slider and changeup.

 

                With the 30th and final pick of the 2017 MLB Draft, The 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs selected Alex Lange from LSU. Lange is a right handed pitcher that is sporting an impressive 9-5 record and 2.92 ERA. The Tiger is also misses a lot of bats, as he has 134 strikeouts so far this year. Lange has a fastball that ranges from 92-96 mph, a changeup, and a very powerful curveball as well.

Auburn High Baseball Falls to Hoover in the 7A State Championship Series

By | Auburn High News | No Comments

After becoming area 4 baseball champions, defeating Mary Montgomery in round one, McGill-Toolen in round two, and Theodore in round three, the Auburn High baseball team was unable to bring home the 2017 7A state championship on Saturday. Auburn won game one of the three game set at Paterson Field on Friday night by a score of 9-6. In the game, Teddy Benda went two for four with three RBI, and Rawlins Cleveland went two for three including a two-run home run in the first.

 

On Saturday the series moved to Riverwalk Stadium where the Tigers dropped the first game 4-0. Hoover starter Brock Guffey dominated the Tigers offense, as he went 7.0 innings allowing just two hits and striking out 11. With the series tied, a tiebreaker game was needed to decide the 7A state champion, a game that Auburn lost in a heartbreaking 6-5 defeat. Hoover scored one run in the first and five in the third to take a 6-0 lead. Auburn began a rally in the fifth, scoring 2 runs to cut the deficit to 6-2. Auburn added on one more in the sixth, then Rowdy Jordan brought home two on an RBI single in the seventh to give the Tigers life down 6-5. However, Jordan then got picked off first base to kill the rally. Hoover started Devin Cole got credit for the win for going 5.0 innings allowing no earned runs while Brock Guffey, who had started game two, came in and got the save in game three. 


Auburn finished the season an impressive 28-12 and got 7A State runner-up for the second year in a row. 

The 2017 7A State Championship Begins Tonight on ESPN 106.7

By | Auburn High News | No Comments

ahs-logo-smallThe Auburn High Tiger baseball team is getting set to begin the 2017 7A AHSAA State Championship on Friday night. Auburn comes into game one as winners of four straight, including a sweep of Theodore in the 7A semifinal series. Despite having a less than stellar performance in the series against Theodore Auburn Senior Rowdey Jordan comes into the State Championship with a team best .404 batting average including eight home runs and 28 RBI. Clay Golson comes into the championship swinging a hot bat. He went three for five with four RBI in the semifinal series. Also Auburn junior Tanner Jones, who was batting in the nine spot last Friday, did not perform like a typical nine-hole hitter. He went three for seven with two runs scored and a home run to center field.

 

Auburn also comes into the series with strong starting pitching. Junior Drew Jennings comes into the State Championship with a 5-2 record and a 3.56 ERA in 11 starts, including a win in game one against Theodore. Junior Brooks Fuller holds a 9-1 record and a 2.70 ERA in 10 starts. Fuller got credit for the win in game two in the series against Theodore. In the first three series of this year’s playoff, Auburn Head Coach Matt Cimo has pitched Jennings in game one, Fuller in game two, and junior Ryan Lambert in game three. If that rotation is kept for the State Championship, Jennings would take on Hoover in game one Friday night.

 

As for Hoover, they were extremely impressive in the semifinal series against Vestavia Hills, rallying from five runs down to win game one 9-8 in nine innings and won game two 3-1. Hoover is not used to this type of success in the playoffs. In fact, no player that will be taking the field Friday night for Hoover has ever made it passed the first round of the 7A playoffs before this year. Brandon Agsalud leads the Buccaneers in hitting this season with a .366 batting average and 26 RBI. Agsalud also is tied for the team lead in home runs with three. Hoover’s ace Devin Cole comes into the State Championship with a 4-2 record and a 1.60 ERA in 9 starts.

 

scott-bagwellGame one of the 7A State Championship series is set for Friday night at 6:00 CT. Scott Bagwell and Riley Hubbard will have the call from Paterson Field on ESPN 106.7 beginning at 5:45 CT. Game two is scheduled for Saturday at 10:00 CT at Riverwalk Stadium.

In game one against Theodore, Auburn starter Drew Jennings outduled Theodore ace Caleb Coffey in a 6-4 victory.

Getting Swept by Alabama Will Not Stop Auburn’s Run at CWS

By | Auburn University News | No Comments

The unpredictable has happened over the weekend at Plainsman Park. The Auburn University baseball team that was tied for the best record in the SEC was swept by Alabama. Alabama held a 2-19 record coming into play, and it was an assumption by most Auburn fans that Auburn was going to either win or sweep the series. A series loss never crept into the minds of most Tiger fans, but baseball is a strange sport- and this weekend the unthinkable happened. In a poll run Friday on The Drive’s Twitter account, 59% of respondents voted that Auburn would sweep the series, 39% voted that Auburn would win the series, 1% voted that win the series, and just 1% responded that Alabama would sweep the ninth ranked Auburn Tigers at home. This is obviously a shock for the Auburn fan base after winning series against tough SEC opponents Arkansas, Florida, and Mississippi State.

Alabama_Crimson_Tide_Logo.svg

But the real question is how did this happen? How did a team that just won an away series against Mississippi State get swept by an Alabama team with a laughable record in the SEC? My take on it is that Alabama is a much better team that their record indicates, as they lost in seven one-run games including three against Mississippi State. The Crimson Tide has had some tough luck in close games, and they finally had a breakthrough this weekend- sometimes you need to tip your cap to the other team. Second, Auburn just had an “off series”. One theme remained constant throughout the series: not capitalizing with runners on base. The Tigers are used to having clutch hitting from consistent hitters like Josh Anthony, Jay Estes, Jonah Todd, and Dylan Ingram, but finished the three game set with a grand total of 41 runners left on base. In the 15 inning marathon on Sunday, Auburn left 13 runners on base from innings 9-15, where any of those runners could have become walk off game winners.

 

auburnThe key for Auburn now is being able to put the sweep in the rearview mirror. Auburn will most likely drop in the rankings and in the RPI, but Auburn knows that they are a much better team that what they showed this weekend. Two pivotal SEC series remain on the schedule for the Tigers, LSU and Ole Miss. Auburn needs to have good series against the Tigers and Rebels in order to reestablish themselves before the SEC Tournament on May 23rd. A good showing at the SEC Tournament will allow Auburn to host a NCAA regional and possibly even a super-regional in early June.

 

Remember that this is still the same Auburn Baseball team that we saw win series against Florida, Arkansas, and Mississippi State. Butch Thomson and the Tigers need to make quick adjustments and focus on claiming a high seed in the SEC Tournament. Getting swept by your biggest rival is embarrassing, but it shouldn’t stop the Tigers from making a push for the College World Series.

Auburn High Baseball Headed to the 7A Semifinals After Winning Series at McGill-Toolen

By | Auburn High News | No Comments

ahs-logo-smallThe Auburn High Baseball team is headed to the 2017 7A semifinals. The Tigers moved on after winning the series at McGill-Toolen, the former number one team in class 7A on Saturday.

 

On Friday afternoon, Auburn got off to a rocky start to the three game series as they were mercy ruled through five innings by a 10-0 score. The Tigers were shutout by McGill-Toolen ace Chandler Best as he held the Tigers to just three hits and no runs. However the Tigers fought back and won game two by 9-6 final score. The win was possible thanks to a five run fifth inning. Auburn Junior Brooks Fuller got credit for the win, as he turned in 5.2 innings allowing just one earned run and striking out five. Fuller also helped himself at the plate, as he went two for four in the game and drove in two RBI. Right Fielder Teddy Benda also had a nice game at the plate, as he drove in four RBI.

 

With the series tied 1-1, a tiebreaker game was played on Saturday to determine which team punched their ticket into the semifinals. The Tigers bats came alive in the tiebreaker game, as they exploded for 15 runs in a 15-4 victory. Junior Garrett Morris led the Tiger offense by going two for four with five RBI and three runs scored while Benda, Fuller, and Trey Woodham all recorded two RBI in the blowout victory. Auburn starter Ryan Lambert got credit for the win for going 5.2 innings, allowing four earned runs and recording four strikeouts.
