I was got a good look at DeJong working for USA Baseball this summer. I literally jumped out of my seat when I saw his name this morning. His is one of a handful of names only name I remembered from the about 1,100 players we were following. He was listed as OF/P, but I only have his stats as OF - I never saw him pitch. In the five games I saw him, he hit .389 and slugged .500, 2 for 2 stealing bases. He ran a 6.64 60 (player average was 7.362 and best was 6.35). Good hitting eye, selective, good contact with a K only every 18 AB.

Several years ago, FAU opened against Tennessee. The Vols' Julio Borbon simply put on a clinic that weekend. He was absolutely brilliant. That's still the biggest impression left on me by an opponent. That's the kind of impression DeJong left on me this summer. The scouts were bearing down on him - he has a high ceiling.

Can't wait to see these new guys blend with the talent we have. John has a way of finding winners.
