Watching the AquaSox

Scanman is the comments thread asked about Class A prospect Dennis Raben, Seattle’s second-round pick from this year’s draft, pictured above wearing No. 29, and whether his year is done because of injury. Well, I just finished speaking to him and can tell you he’s back in the lineup for the Everett AquaSox after missing 2 1/2 weeks with a sprained finer ligament. He’s been in games the last two nights, getting a double yesterday. Raben is glad to be back playing, since the season ends next week. He’s been given a first baseman’s glove and has taken grounders at that position before games. But in the games themselves, he’s been playing left and right field.
Bu the way, he’s the guy who drew six walks during that College World Series game.
They want him keeping his options open for now as far as positions go. Down below, a shot of Raben in batting practice, driving a ball the opposite way. It didn’t go out, but did hit the wall.

Wasn’t quite as successful on this first-inning strikeout, shown down below. Though he made a strong throw from right to nab David Thomas of the Vancouver Canadians attempting to take second on an RBI single.

And for FukomdomeFan, here’s a video of Jharmidy DeJesus, hitting a three-run homer for Everett in tonight’s third inning to put the AquaSox ahead 4-2.
