It’s not a reach to look into the crystal ball and predict left-hander Albert Minnis maturing into a Friday night starter at Wichita State a few years from now, based on this look from the summer.

Prospect vs. Prospect: Scouting Video of Greg Brodzinski vs. Albert Minnis (2010 Draft)

By
January 28, 2010

The prospect vs. prospect at-bat is one of our favorite features here at Baseball Beginnings. We thought it would be a good time to dust off the plate and have a look at two players from different parts of the country with Kansas left-handed pitcher Albert Minnis and New Jersey catcher Greg Brodzinski.

First look: 2010 Draft Prospects (High School pitchers)

By
September 22, 2009

Baseball Beginnings is pleased to unveil our first NATIONAL look at the June 2010 draft here in September, 2009, eight months before the first name is called.

In the scouting world, every quality player is on a follow list. It’s a good bet that most of these players are already on such lists, but it’s important to remember that things will change over the next eight months – no list, no matter this one or one by a team should be considered definitive at this time of year, but should instead be regarded as a road map.

Some players who are not on this list will be hot and others who were hot in summer and fall will lose some luster in spring. That’s why you won’t see rankings here, because Baseball Beginnings works like a major league team. We’re not ranking players right now. And when we do, we keep them in-house. The world is full of people who will rank players. A good scout NEVER tells.

Every single player on this list has been seen by our scouting staff IN PERSON, meaning we don’t take our information from secondary sources. It’s on us.

Area Codes Game 2: Bundy, Shipers and Bradley shut down Rangers

By
August 5, 2009

Dylan Bundy, Jordan Shipers and Archie Bradley combined to pitch seven no-hit innings for the White Sox at Blair Field Wednesday night until Kendrick Perkins led off the eighth inning with a single against left-hander Albert Minnis.

White Sox starter Dylan Bundy (Owasso HS, Sperry, Oklahoma), a husky, powerfully-built 6-2, 205 right-hander, hit 91, 92 and 93 mph with his fastball in the first inning, controlling it enough to get outs. He dropped in a change-up at 77 and a curveball for a strikeout at 74 to retire Perkins, showcasing his secondary pitches.

Bundy struck out the side in the second inning. Pitching with his fastball at 91-93, Bundy struck out Jacob Felts (Orangefield HS, Orange Tex.) and Jared Lakind (Cypress Woods HS, Cypress, Tex.) with fastballs. He finished off Dex Kjerstad (Canyon Randall HS, Amarillo) with the best breaking ball he threw in his outing.
