Every night I see the highlight shows and every time I see the Giants on TV, I am reminded of how many local players are in the big leagues.  Of course we see Nate Schierholtz and Brandon Crawford of the Giants playing nearly every day and last night, Tyson Ross made his season debut as the A's beat the Angels.  There are more around the bigs and a bunch more in the minors waiting to make their impact.  Not only that, we could see two of the local college pitchers drafted VERY HIGH in the first round.  Stanford RHP Mark Appel has been in consideration for the #1 overall pick all season and USF RHP Kyle Zimmer is also considered a first round talent, possibly in the first ten picks.

Here are some notable local and regional players and their stats for the season so far...

Matt Garza, RHP Cubs, Washington Union HS (Fresno), Fresno State - 1-0, 1.23 ERA

Bud Norris, RHP Astros, San Marin HS, Cal Poly - 0-0, 3.46 ERA

Doug Fister, RHP Tigers, Golden Valley HS (Merced), Fresno State - currently on DL

Vance Worley, RHP Phillies, C.K. McClatchy HS (Sacramento) - 0-1, 3.75 ERA

Jimmy Rollins, SS Phillies, Encinal HS (Alameda) - .311, 6 R, 2 RBI, 2 SB

Dustin Pedroia, 2B Red Sox, Woodland HS - .295, 3 HR, 5 RBI, 8 R, 1 SB

CC Sabathia, LHP Yankees, Vallejo HS - 1-0, 5.59 ERA

Ted Lilly, LHP Dodgers, Yosemite HS (Oakhurst), Fresno City College - 1-0, 0.00 ERA

Troy Tulowitzki, SS Rockies, Fremont HS (Sunnyvale) - .244, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 8 R

Brandon Morrow, RHP Blue Jays, Rancho Cotate HS (Rohnert Park), Cal-Berkeley - 0-0, 2.57 ERA

Kyle Lohse, RHP Cardinals, Hamilton Union HS (Hamilton City), Butte College - 2-0, 0.89 ERA
