The Darton site has no stats listed for 2009 for any of their players... he used to be a SS

14th best prospect in GA per BA

"This year's top junior-college talents in the state are all pitchers, including Darton JC righthander Tony Whitenton, who ran his fastball up to 94 mph at times this spring, sitting in the 88-91 mph range. He also flashed a solid to plus slider that had power and some depth."

Whitenton was signed away from Kennesaw State.

Some think he was the best JC player in the state of Georgia.

Interesting. Well, there you have it, that's one guy I didn't expect to sign.

On a side not, Kennesaw State got crushed in its recruiting class as Whitenton, Nash and Wheeler all signed (or likely to). Jeez.

Yeah, and if you're using the "He's 19" logic, then I guess the best report a scout could give us is:


"I have no idea. He's a teenager. He may go through 5 arm surgeries between now and his 30th birthday. He may add a pitch. He may lose a pitch. He may put on 30 lbs and add velocity. He may put on 50 lbs and eat his way out of the league. I literally have no idea what he is going to be."

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?
