Ole Miss Rebel Baseball: Rebels in the Pros

I saw where Alex Presley is tearing it up for the Pirate's AAA franchise.  He is currently hitting .377/.421/.561 (.982 OPS) for Indianapolis with 21 runs, 5 doubles, 2 triples, 4 home runs, and 16 RBI.  He is 8 out of 10 in stolen bases as well.

Seems like he should be called up for the lowly Pirates.  He spent last year between AA and AAA putting up pretty good numbers there as well (hitting .320/.373/.494 combined) before being called up in September (.261/.292/.304) with the Pirates.  

We've had quite a few players drafted, and the Rebels in the Pro's thing is a little out of date on so I thought I'd see what I could dig up.

Chris Coghlan, Seth Smith, and Matt Tolbert are all in the majors.  

I've listed active minor leaguers first followed by some that are still out there, maybe, somewhere "Unknowns". Followed up with players out of baseball:  first "Out of the majors" for players that reached the big leagues but are no longer playing baseball; secondly, "Out of baseball" for those who didn't make it out of the minor leagues.  

Nathan Baker (2-1, 5.53 ERA)  along with former Rebel Phillip Irwin (1-0, 0.82) are playing for the Bradenton Marauders (A+) of the Pirates organization.

Chris Corrigan (0-0, 2.84, 2 svs combined A/A+) is pitching in high A ball for the Cards organization.

Zack Cozart is playing for the Louisville Bats (Cincinnati) in triple A (.259/.296/.388).

Tim Ferguson is with the Royals organization, playing high A ball at Wilmington (.165/.261/.289).  (Ouch, maybe not much longer though)

Stephen Head is attempting to come back as a left handed pitchers for the Rockies organization.  He was signed out of tryout camp and designated for extended spring training.  It appears he will be on the Tri-City Dust Devils Class A - short season team starting in June.  (HT: akmiller)

Jordan Henry is playing for the Akron Aeros of the Indians organization (AA - .299/.384/.345 - 11 out of 11 steals).

Justin Henry is playing for the Erie SeaWolves of the Tigers franchise (AA - .322/.437/.424).  He bounced back and forth between AA and AAA in 2010.  

Bobby Kielty last played in the majors in 2007, currently in Tucson (AAA) for the San Diego Padres.

Lance Lynn, Memphis Redbirds, St. Louis Cardinals organization.  Lynn is 2 - 3 so far this year with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.  Both of those are just under the league average as the PCL is a pretty run heavy environment.  Last year he was 13-10 with a 4.77 ERA for the Redbirds, and the league average was 4.78.  

Matt Maloney - AAAA pitcher right now; struggled for the Reds earlier this year (0-1, 8.49) currently with AAA Louisville and doing well (1-0, 1.10).

Cody Overbeck - AA for the Phillies.  Hitting .291/.336/.592 (.929) through 28 games for Reading (9 homers).

Drew Pomeranz is 1 - 0 so far but he's pitched pretty well for the Kinston Indians.  He has 42 K's in 28.1 innings with a 0.92 WHIP.  

Aaron Barrett played for the Vermont Lake Monsters in 2010, playing for the Auburn Doubledays starting in June for the Nationals.   (HT: WVTNRebel)

Unknown:  Scott Bittle - He is still with the Cardinals but hasn't pitched and details were sketchy.  

"Scott Bittle eyewitness reports and more!" - from the Cardinals Insider on

Listed on the site as being a member of the Batavia Muckdogs, but that information is not updated yet through the Cardinals/Muckdogs team roster.  


Out of the majors:  T.J. Beam, David Dellucci.
