32 962 New York Mets Patrick Farrell C Colo.
Teams always find jobs for catchers who can hit at least a little bit, and Colorado has two such players this year. The first is senior Patrick Farrell, a sturdy 6-foot-3, 210 pounder who transferred to Regis from Nevada-Las Vegas. He has a knack for getting the bat on the ball, as he struck out 14 times over 145 at-bats this season, and also has power potential. Farrell is a decent receiver and has average arm strength, but needs to improve his footwork. He has a strong, durable frame and works hard. He had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in early May--an operation that was performed by Pierce Trumper's father--but he's back to 100 percent now.
