Recently I was able to interview Dodgers #16 top prospect (according to MLB Pipeline) As of 2017 he is the #15 prospect in the Mariners Organization. Chase Dejong. In 2015 he helped the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes win the California League title and this past November his contract was selected by the Dodgers from their AAA affiliate the OKC Dodgers. While getting to talk to him, I found that he has a great taste in films and a great respect for the old stadiums. Recently made his Major League Debut with the Seattle Mariners!

Mike Duffy: What did you do best this season?

Chase Dejong: This season I was able to pound the strike zone with quality strikes and cover my innings as a starting pitcher going 5+ more times then not.

Chase Dejong: This offseason I’ve been trying to put on some weight to help me last longer and cover more innings. Aiming for 180+ innings.

Shane Sawczak

Interviewed By Mike Duffy



Mike Duffy: How did you get a better control on the ball to get your era down?

Shane Sawczak: I learned how to locate my fastball. Throwing it on both sides of the plate and getting ahead of the hitters. First pitch strikes are key.


Mike Duffy: Hardest thing about pitching?

Shane Sawczak:  The hardest thing about pitching is knowing you will get hit and give up runs but you gotta move past it and keep pitching.


Mike Duffy: Best thing about pitching?

Shane Sawczak: The best thing about pitching is knowing that you are on the mound pitching for your team, then trusting you and you having their backs. Also striking someone out or in my case picking them off at first base (that’s my specialty).


Mike Duffy:  What are your favorite things to do during the off-season?

Shane Sawczak: My favorite thing about off-season and relaxing with friends and family. Learning about myself and looking forward to next season. Working out everyday to get bigger and stronger!

Sawczak2-1.jpeg


Mike Duffy: I was wondering  when you go from high school to the minor leagues, what was the biggest challenge when you reach each stage?

Shane Sawczak: My goals for this offseason are just staying healthy, improving in the weight room and improving my weaknesses. I need to learn how to locate my off-speed better.

Kevin Gowdy was drafted by the Phillies in the second round this year and is now ranked as the #11 Prospect in the Phillies Organization. In 2015 he went on to help the Team U.S.A 18U team win a gold medal and some of his teammates included other top draft picks this year like Will Benson, Blake Rutherford, and the First pick of the Draft Mickey Moniak. Deciding to sign with the Phillies rather then attending UCLA, he knows what he wants; and thats to play professional baseball!  Here my interview with Phillies next sensation Kevin Gowdy.


Mike Duffy: What makes you so successful as a pitcher?

Kevin Gowdy:  The mental part of pitching is a big huge part
of it for any pitcher. Once you get to the professional level, so many pitchers have such good stuff and I think it’s the ones who are mentally tough and can compete that end up being successful in the big leagues.

Mike Duffy: Whats your favorite thing about pitching?

Kevin Gowdy:  My favorite thing about pitching is being handed the ball every seven days and just going out there and doing what I can to help my team win

Mike Duffy: Was it a tough decision to sign rather then going to UCLA?
