Still no word on any trades involving players with Kentucky ties today, but with just under two hours left until the 4 p.m. non-waiver deadline keep watch on here and on BluGrass Baseball’s twitter for any late breaking news.
There is some BluGrass Baseball news to pass along though. This morning I highlighted former EKU Colonel Christian Friedrich in the morning links post, and Baseball America has chosen to honor the Rockies’ prospect as well. The magazine ranked Friedrich number one on this week’s Prospect Hot Sheet. The Hot Sheet is a weekly ranking of the best performances from baseball’s top prospects.
Friedrich earned the honor after a week that saw him go 0-0 with a 0.82 ERA in 11 innings with 22 strikeouts and just three walks.
