The comeback continues. Zach Joyce, 6'4", 225 lbs, pitcher, threw mid to high 90's at 18 yrs old at Walters State in early 2019. Tommy John surgery this year. On schedule to throw bullpens late November. Fingers crossed.
Zach is on track to start throwing bullpens in November. Look for him to be very good in a limited role early in the year. Unfortunately, his brother Ben, who has topped out at 101 and is normally at 95-96, either had or is scheduled for Tommy John surgery soon. He will be back next year. The Joyce Brothers are two of the hardest working athletes you will find anywhere.

I have no problem with it. Life would probably be a lot cheerier if you had a less sour outlook Bruin.

This is just the game you have to play to get on top. If we don’t offer and accept an elite prospects commitment, someone else will and then we’re on the outside looking in. It’s not like we’re the only one talking to these kids at a young age. Everyone is doing it.

since you brought it up I’ll answer it again

I don’t have a problem with us doing it I have a problem that everyone is doing it

The system needs to change
