Pros to Watch
Pros to Watch: Chris Davis (Navarro College), First Baseman, Baltimore Orioles
Southpaw James Paxton of the Seattle Mariners is another ex-Falcons big leaguer to keep an eye on in 2016. But it's 2015 MLB Home Run leader Chris Davis of the Orioles that has clearly emerged as superstar commanding a 7-year $161M Free Agent contract over the off-season.
Big Man on Campus
Big Man on Campus: Curtis Taylor, Pitcher, University of British Columbia
Hard-throwing pitcher Curtis Taylor of UBC is generating great scout interest as the draft-eligible right-hander continues to progress on the mound. The 6'5" pitcher led UBC in appearances last spring with 24 while posting a miniscule ERA of 1.02, going 4-2, striking out 51 over 53 innings pitched and registering a team-leading 12 saves. Curtis earned NAIA honorable mention All-America honors and finished his 2015 season as a big part of the Kelowna Falcons division championship club. Taylor went 3-3 with two saves over 10 appearances and 7 starts and posted a 3.37 ERA last summer for the Falcons.
