Talented Mudcats Start Season with Win
Nice article in the Rock Mount Telegram about the Carolina Mudcats and the impressive line up we have in AA. They played their opener against the Montgomery Biscuits (I kid you not).
Eight of the top 11 prospects in the Florida Marlins organization are with the Double-A team, and it was easy to see why this group is thought of so highly.
Starting pitcher Chris Volstad was efficient, giving up one run in six innings.
Cameron Maybin, the crown jewel of the system, might have struck out twice, but he had a pair of singles and a stolen base.
Shortstop Manuel Mayorson hit a double and scored, stole a base and took several hits away from the Biscuits.
Chris Coghlan, the best hitter for average the Marlins have in the minor leagues, was 3-for-4 and as impressive at second base as Mayorson was at short.
The Mudcats won 7-1.
