One to watch (Logan Sawyer): After starting the season in Asheville, 2014 29th round draft pick Logan Sawyer came back down to Boise and put together three quality starts in his first five outings for the Hawks. All told, he’s 2-1 3.30 ERA in 30.0 innings in Boise this season, with a 1.17 WHIP and just a .229 batting average against.
As a college guy from Tennessee, the 22-year old (he’ll be 23 just before New Year’s Day) has his back to the wall a little bit due to his age, but assuming he keeps throwing well and earns a recall to Asheville in a few weeks, there’s no reason the 6’5″ right handed pitcher couldn’t get another longer look in the Rockies’ organization next season.
Quick hits: Turns out we aren’t the only folks who have good things to say about Logan Sawyer … More from the Idaho Statesman, the Hawks are doing one good thing in a season that’s been tough: they are stealing bases … Here’s a good read on Rockies’ undrafted free agent Brian Carroll and his time with the Hawks.
