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!
