Of the nine alums of the inaugural International Week event that have gone on to professional baseball, it’s Grayson Rodriguez (pictured) that’s garnered the most attention so far.
Rodriguez, the 11th overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft by the Baltimore Orioles, is 3-0 with an 0.54 ERA in his first three starts for Low-A Delmarva, striking out 28 batters in just 16 2/3 innings while walking only six. He struck out ten batters in each of his first two outings, and fanned eight in his most recent outing against Greensboro.
Here’s a look at the rest of the active alums, with plenty more to come once the 2019 MLB Draft takes place in June, which will include plenty of 2018 International Week participants.
All stats are accurate as of April 20, 2019:
Noah “Bo” Naylor, Indians, Lake County (A-): 11 GP, .184, 0 HR, 4 RBI
Dominic Pipkin, Phillies, Lakewood (A-): 0-1, 5.79 ERA, 3 GP, 1 GS, 7 K, 4 BB, 9 1/3 IP
Damon Casetta-Stubbs, Mariners, Modesto (A+): 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 GP, 3 K, 2 BB, 2 1/3 IP
Mateo Gil, Yeancarlos Lleras, Sean Guilbe, Alberto Gonzalez, Xavier Valentin are all either in extended spring training or expected to be assigned to short-season teams.
