We signed a dude; prospect from Australia

Since as far as I can tell, it was never mentioned here...

16 year-old pitcher from Australia named Nick Hutchings. Nothing super exciting, but he looks like he could be a legit prospect if he continues to grow and mature. No word on the actual signing bonus, but this means we will now have 4 (I believe) Australians in the system. Dylan Child, Wilson Lee, and Jackson Lodge. Lodge might be the best prospect right now, but with a fastball - talking about Lodge - that sits in the high 80's, he's not much of a prospect at the moment.


Hopefully Hutchings can pass him quickly. More on him here.

Update: We have two other Australians, SS Sam Kennelly signed this year and infielder Stefan Welch
