Preview: Rising Star Addison Russell Ready to Shine for Stockton in 2013

Top draft pick Addison Russell is set to star for Stockton!

Top draft pick Addison Russell is set to star for Stockton!

The opening day roster for the Stockton Ports, the A’s Class-A affiliate in the California League, was announced this week. And the Ports’ lineup will be led by the A’s top draft pick from last year, rising star Addison Russell.

The A’s top shortstop prospect will be joined in the Ports’ infield by first baseman Max Muncy, second baseman Antonio Lamas and third baseman B.A. Vollmuth, along with backups Tony Thompson and Wade Kirkland. Returning outfielders Myrio Richard, Josh Whitaker and Dusty Robinson will be joined by newcomer Bobby Crocker, and Ryan Ortiz and Ryan Delgado will be behind the plate.

The Ports’ pitching staff will be comprised of Sean Murphy, Jacob Brown, Drew Granier, Blake Hassebrock, Seth Frankoff, Andres Avila, Tanner Peters, Jose Macias, Jonathan Joseph, T.J. Walz, Pedro Vidal, David Mota and Omar Duran.

You’ll find the Stockton Ports’ complete roster, along with profiles of some of the team’s top players, below…

 

arhi-res-162044917_display_imageADDISON RUSSELL

Right-Handed Hitting Shortstop

Age On Opening Day: 19

Drafted 2012 – 1st Round

The A’s top pick in last year’s draft was not only the star of the A’s 2012 draft class but was also the star of the team’s entire minor league system. And it didn’t take long for Russell to quickly become a favorite amongst A’s fans who have their eyes on the future. The Florida native earned the attention by tearing through three levels of minor league ball at the age of 18, and he’ll be starting the year in the California League at the age of 19. In 217 at-bats in the Arizona League, the NY-Penn League and the Midwest League in 2012, Russell had 10 doubles, 9 triples, 7 home runs and 16 stolen bases with an impressive .369/.432/.594 slash line. He didn’t disappoint in the field either, showing nice range and a good arm. The bottom line is that Russell is very young, very talented and very hard-working, and there’s no reason that he shouldn’t continue to rise as quickly as his performance demands.

 

mm628x471bMAX MUNCY

Left-Handed Hitting First Baseman

Age On Opening Day: 22

Drafted 2012 – 5th Round

Another promising catch from last year’s draft, Muncy skipped two levels of the A’s minor league system and started the year higher than any other member of the A’s draft class at Class-A Burlington in the Midwest League. And he held his own there, posting a .275/.383/.432 slash line in 64 games. The left-handed hitter also seemed to be developing a little more power this spring in Arizona. And Muncy will be joining Russell, as the two fastest-rising members of last year’s draft class, in Stockton’s infield this season.

(Home Run / Double / 3 RBIs)

 

 

Worth Noting: Shortstop Brandon Hicks had another big night at the plate. After hitting his 8th home run of the season on Thursday, he launched his 9th home run on Friday to give the River Cats the lead, which they never relinquished. First baseman Daric Barton homered as well, and starter Graham Godfrey had another solid outing, allowing just 2 runs over 7 2/3 innings to run his record to 6-0. In other news, the Manny Ramirez era in Sacramento is officially over as the slugger asked for his release and was promptly granted it by the A’s.

Worth Noting: Third baseman Miles Head had another big game on Friday, homering twice and driving in 3 runs. The Ports better enjoy his production while they can though, since rumor has it that Head will soon be on his way to Double-A Midland. Starter Blake Hassebrock, making his first appearance after spending the last 8 weeks on the disbled list, allowed 4 runs on 5 hits over just 2 innings. Left-hander Ian Krol followed up by allowing 4 runs, 2 earned, over 5 innings of work.

But starter Seth Frankoff had another rocky outing, allowing 6 runs on 10 hits over 5 innings to run his record to 1-5. Right-hander Jonathan Joseph took over in the 6th inning and did his best to give the Bees a chance, tossing 3 scoreless innings in relief.
