Osprey’s in the Majors

For those of you that attend Osprey games, the D-Back have just called up two ex-Osprey players.  Gerardo Parra and Bryan Augenstein were called up yesterday to join the team.  This is really cool!  I only know of one other person, Lyle Overbay to make it to the bigs after a year in an Osprey uniform.

A friend of mine watched Parra a couple years back and told me about him.  He has a gun for an arm that continues to nail players when they attempt to tag.  Here is what the scout.com had for Parra as well.

I don’t know much about Augenstein, but he sounds like a solid pitcher for the ball club.  The great thing about this move, they are both skipping AAA and jumping right in.  I think that speaks highly of their talent and playing level.  On top of that Augenstein is starting on Wednesday!
