Q: Which position player on the Cyclones team do you
think has the highest ceiling and why? What do you like about his game and what do you think he needs to work on the
most in order to develop into a big leaguer?
A: “Dustin Martin. He just has tons of potential. I don’t think he has to really work on anything, he’s
got all the tools.”
Q: Which pitcher do you think has the highest big league upside and why?
A: “Jose De La Torre. He’s a great young arm. He has electric stuff, 92 mph fastball with good movement,
a great changeup, a slider and curveball that I think are all plus pitches.”
Q: Who do you think is the biggest sleeper prospect, position prospect or pitcher? Who do you think will fly
under the radar, doesn't get the attention he deserves, but will become a quality big leaguer?
A: “Jonathan Schemmel. He’s one of those sound fundamental players that goes out there every night and
gets the job done.”
Q: Heading into the off-season, what do you need to work on the most to be ready for next season and what will you
be doing to work on it?
A: “I’m going to be focusing a lot on my catching; I just have to work on my reps and everything will be
fine. My hitting I know will be there.”
Q: What would you say is your biggest strength as a ball player? What do you bring to the field and to your team?
A: “Overall, I like to think I’m a well balanced ballplayer, I can do a bit of everything. I wouldn’t
say I’m a flashy or pretty player, I just try and go out there and get it done.”
Q: What did you think of your season this year? How do you think it went for you?
A: “I’m struggling a little bit offensively, but I feel that I’m doing a good job behind the plate
helping the team that way, so that’s something I rest my shoulders about.”
Q: To give our fans a better idea of the type of player you are, who would you compare your game to at the Major League
level and why?
A: “Probably a guy like Darin Erstad. All go, no quit all the time.”
