I still believe that Baxendale can become a Scott Baker-ish contributor to the rotation in 2015.
That would be fantastic. I don't think he will have the Strike Out numbers of Baker as his FB doesn't compare. I personally hope he develops amazing control, and maybe figures out some kind of devasting change-up and become Brad Radke. Baker, Radke and Baxendale all are flyball pitchers and susceptible to the long ball...so...maybe Baxendale would fit in well at Target Field.
Darnell - He has pitched himself into the mix as an AFL guy. His Right/Left Splits are pretty stark so he looks to fill a Duencing type of role. But he has really came around nicely this year.
E-Town - I just can't stop looking at their pitching staff. Almost none of them can legally drink but they sure can pitch! Its a cool group to watch. It so different to watching them pitch compared to previous years where they had a bunch of college guys strike guys out every inning. With their age, we should see another 6 man rotation at Cedar Rapids next year.

He needs to watch Slegers pitch or something.

Also, AJ Pettersen just tweeted that he'll be joining the Miracle for the rest of the season.
