I look forward to following these players more as the season progresses and as we draw closer to the All-Star break. In the upcoming weeks, I will be doing individual posts with some of these players. My first post will be with the Washington Wild Things draft picks – Pitcher Joe Iorio and Catcher John Fidanza.
