Jim Fuller[edit]

Jim Fuller

Pitcher

Marlboro, Massachusetts
Bats: Left Throws: Left

James "Jim" Fuller (born June 1, 1987) is a North American professional baseball player. He is a left handed pitcher in the New York Mets organization. Fuller was a talented pitcher for Marlborough High School in Marlborough, Massachusetts, and gathered some attention out of high school, but was not drafted. In his high school career, Fuller accumulated two regional MVP awards, 353 career strikeouts and 27 wins.

He started college at Southern New Hampshire University. In hopes of improving his prospects of a Major League career, Fuller transferred to Western Oklahoma State College, but stayed only briefly before transferring to Southern Connecticut State University. Due to eligibility restrictions, Fuller did not return to action until 2008, in which he struck out 145 batters, leading all Division II pitchers, and averaged over 13 strikeouts per nine innings pitched. Fuller also recorded a streak of 59 scoreless innings pitched to go along with a 9-3 record and a extraordinary 1.39 ERA. He was named a Division II All-American.

After his sophomore season, Fuller was selected in the 21st round (644th overall) by the New York Mets in the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft.

The Mets optioned Fuller to the Class-A Brooklyn Cyclones. Fuller pitched 18.0 innings with an ERA of 1.00 while earning one save, two wins, and striking out 22 in an impressive first season in professional ball.[3]

B. J. Hermsen[edit]

B. J. Hermsen
Minnesota Twins
Pitcher
Born: (1989-12-01) December 1, 1989 (age 24)
Masonville, Iowa
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Brett Joseph Hermsen (born December 1, 1989) is an American professional baseball player for the Minnesota Twins organization.

Hermsen attended West Delaware High School in Manchester, Iowa. The Minnesota Twins selected Hermsen in the sixth round of the 2008 MLB Draft. Hermsen signed, rather than follow through on his commitment to attend Oregon State University.[4]

In 2012, Hermsen was named the Twins' best minor league pitcher. Before the 2013 season, the Twins added Hermsen to their 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.[5] After pitching to a 1-10 win-loss record and a 4.81 earned run average during the 2013 season, they removed him from the 40-man roster that offseason.[6]

Daniel Ortiz[edit]

Daniel Ortiz
Minnesota Twins – No. --
Outfielder
Born: (1990-01-05) January 5, 1990 (age 24)
Caguas, Puerto Rico
Bats: Left Throws: Left

Daniel Ortiz (born January 5, 1990) is a Puerto Rican professional baseball outfielder for the Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Ortiz was drafted in the fourth round (126th overall) by the Minnesota Twins in the 2008 MLB draft out of Benjamin Harrison High School in Cayey, Puerto Rico.[8] After signing for $253,000, Ortiz reported to the GCL Twins where he did well, hitting .274 with two home runs and 27 RBIs over 48 games.[9] Daniel was forced to miss the 2009 season after undergoing left knee surgery during the offseason[10] and as a result, his stock dropped dramatically from a high-round draft selection to a player still playing in a Rookie League two seasons after being drafted. Ortiz did little to change that perception over the next two years, hitting .259 with 11 homers and 43 RBIs over 62 games with the Elizabethton Twins in 2010 and .239 with 10 homers and 71 RBIs the following year with Low-A Beloit. For the 2012 season, Ortiz began the year back with the Snappers but quickly proved that he was a changed player, hitting .299 with 8 runs and 13 RBIs through only 22 games and earning himself a spot on the midseason Midwest League all-star team.[11] This production was enough to warrant a promotion and Ortiz started the month of May with the High-A Fort Myers Miracle. Over the rest of the season, Ortiz continued to hit for both average and power, finishing with a .269 batting average, eight home runs and 35 RBIs. Ortiz was promoted again to begin the 2013 year, playing for the Double-A New Britain Rock Cats. Though at 23 he was 1.4 years younger than the average Double-A player, Ortiz proved that he was where he belonged, hitting a career high 12 home runs to go along with a .258 batting average and 60 RBIs. In 2014 Ortiz remained with the Rock Cats and absolutely tore up the Eastern League for 48 games, and he owned a .500 SLG%, a .325 AVG, and 31 RBIs before an early-June call up to the Rochester Red Wings. In only 55 games since his promotion, Ortiz has hit 7 home runs, driven in 29 runs, recorded a slugging percentage of .456, and owns a respectable .257 batting average, all in a league where he is a full three years younger than the average player.[12]


Reynaldo Rodriguez[edit]

Reynaldo Rodriguez
Minnesota Twins
First baseman
Born: (1986-02-07) February 7, 1986 (age 28)
Cartagena, Colombia
Bats: Right Throws: Right

Reynaldo Rodriguez, a first baseman and corner outfielder, was signed as an undrafted 19 year old free agent by the New York Yankees in 2006. He spent that season and the next season performing well in rookie ball. He was released and returned to Colombia where he played in 2008 before being signed by the Yuma Scorpions of the independent Golden Baseball League for the 2009 season. He had a breakout year in 2009 and headed Baseball America's Independent League Top Prospects List and had his contract purchased by the Boston Red Sox in the off-season. Always a hitter for average his power developed as he matured and with Boston he made it up to the triple-a Pawtucket Red Sox. Over the 2012 offseason, he became a free agent and was signed by the Minnesota Twins where he had 21 homeruns and an OPS of .787 in AA New Britain in 121 games. In 2014 he continued his hot hitting posting 20 home runs and an .870 OPS while batting .293 in 122 games before being promoted to AAA Rochester where he is now.

Early years[edit]

Rohlfing was born in St. Louis, Missouri and attended Oakville High School in Oakville, Missouri. After graduating from high school, the Minnesota Twins selected Rohlfing in the 14th round of the 2007 First Year Player Draft.

While attending high school, Rohlfing was named Suburban West Conference Player of the Year, first team All-State, and first team All-Conference as a catcher as a high school senior after batting .486 with three homeruns, 27 RBIs, and a .591 on-base percentage.
