Kent Baseball Players in the Pros - 2019 edition
Because we should have one when Eric Lauer pitches 6 shutout innings on opening day.

In the bigs:
Travis Shaw (3B Brewers)
Taylor Williams (RP Brewers)
Eric Lauer (SP Padres)
Andrew Chafin (RP D'backs)

and a cast of tens in the minors...

RE: Kent Baseball Players in the Pros - 2019 edition
Might as well do a May 1 update:

* Andrew Chafin is pitching well for the D'backs after a rough early outing. He seems to be in the setup role he's been in the past, but brought in where there is a clear platoon advantage.

* Eric Lauer has been solid for the Padres, but a little below average (kind of like last year). His fastball has been in the 92 mph range, which is good, but he does give up too many homeruns.

* Travis Shaw is off to a really rough start (194/282/347), but has shown some signs of the bat waking up the last week or so. His BB/SO has been bad this year (and it was horrendous in spring training), so I'm not sure what's up.

* Taylor Williams started the year in Milwaukee, didn't pitch particularly well and got sent to the minors where he has been ok. I think he'll bounce up and down a bit this year.

* John Fasola got promoted to St. Louis' AAA team. He hasn't pitched well, but he is only one step from the bigs. He was taken in the offseason minor league Rule 5 draft from the Rangers.

* Brian Clark started the year in AA for the White Sox and got released in mid-April. I'm not sure if Clark has big-league talent, but it was clear he was going no where with the Sox, so a fresh start somewhere might be helpful for him.
