Top 5 Albany Dutchmen Prospects From 2014 Season

The 2014 Albany Dutchmen season is over but it was a memorable one with the teams second consecutive trip to the PGCBL playoffs.

Like many college summer league teams, the Dutchmen will have a hard time retaining most of their players for the 2015 season. Most players in the PGCBL are in their freshman or sophomore years in college and once they get more playing time at the college level their stock usually rises, resulting in them going to other leagues around the country to gain more exposure in hopes of getting drafted and playing professional baseball.

With that being said, here are my top five prospects from the 2014 Albany Dutchmen to watch out for down the road.

#1 - Demetrius Webb (C - Indiana University) - Webb was the best defensive catcher in the PGCBL during the 2014 season. He seems to have to command of the game and his pitching staff. His arm put fear on base-runners eyes as he sniped off runner after runner who took a little much of a lead off a base. Many people would compare him to a young Yadier Molina. While his defensive skills are established, his offensive is still a work in progress. Webb should get a shot to play more at Indiana next spring and establish himself as one of the best catchers in the Big Ten.

#2 - Sean Aspinall (OF - Azuna Pacific University) - Aspinall was the most athletic player on the Dutchmen this season. His stats speak for themselves with a .336 batting average with 26 RBI, and 8 stolen bases. The 5-tool talent also displayed a rocket for an arm in the outfield.

 #3 - Austin Foote (LHP - Indiana University) - Foote was one of the better left-handed relievers in the PGCBL this past season. He's ability to work out of tough situations was impressive. He's composure is well beyond his years. He's still extremely young and can only get better as he pitches more in college.

#4 - Drew Tolson (RHP - Baylor University) - Tolson won't over power you with his stuff but he knows how to pitch and commands the strike zone.  His off speed pitches can be devastating at times. In 54.1 innings pitched he only allowed 6 walks.

#5 - Cam Miller (C/1B - Baylor University) - Miller showed a lo of power this summer with a .350 slugging percentage. Like many of his teammates he is still young and learning the game. Once he learns to hit, his confidence will come and he'll be putting up even better power numbers.
