Yesterday’s Good News

I have learned, and it was corroborated, that 2012 5th Round draft choice Damien Magnifico has agreed to a professional contract pending results of a physical examination.

Magnifico is a flame-throwing pitcher who, scouts say, throws an easy 100 MPH fastball. He needs to develop a secondary pitch to find success at the big league level as a reliever, but that’s something people feel he is certainly capable of.

Congrats to Magnifico and a warm, if pending, welcome to the Brewers organization!

***UPDATE***
Jim Callis from Baseball America has learned that Magnifico agreed to a contract value of $285,000 which is higher than the slotted pick value of $209,900.

Good News:
SS Jeff Bianchi batted lead-off Saturday and went 3-for-4 w/ RBI, BB, 2 SBs, and then 3-for-4 on Sunday raising his average to .321 in 46 games as a Sound.

Also good news, absolutely. Not exactly topical, but I appreciate the statistical update all the same.
