Damon Casetta-Stubbs made recent headlines by being named to pitch in the Northwest League All-Star Game, but since our last update prior to the start of the national tournaments in Cypress, Texas, quite a bit has changed for many of the New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series powered by Program 15 alums who have made their way into the pro ranks.
Sean Guilbe (pictured) has turned his season around in a big way with the Tri-City Dust Devils, turning in four multi-hit games and three home runs in the last ten days. Guilbe very, very memorably homered in the inaugural International Week event held in Sugar Land, which helped put him on the map for the following year’s draft. He enjoyed the experience so much, he returned to the subsequent International Week event at Camelback Ranch to help out.
A trio of 2019 MLB Draft picks have made their pro debuts; Daniel Espino, Kyren Paris and Dasan Brown have all signed and headed either to the AZL or GCL.
Brown already has two triples in his first 23 at-bats, showing off the blazing speed that dazzled at many P15 events. Espino is striking out over one batter per inning despite being very sparingly used, while Paris had a two-hit game in his July 31 pro debut.
