Wimmers named #3 prospect in Cape Cod League

Don't have a link to go along with this, well I do, but one you probably can't access since Baseball America is a paid-publication, but trust me on this.

All-American Alex Wimmers has been named by Baseball America to be the top RHP prospect of the 2009 Cape Cod Baseball League, and the #3 overall prospect.

Wimmers in limited time with the Bourne Braves was stellar going 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA in 22 IP. Wimmers struck out 37 for a ridiculous 15.1 K/9, allowed 12 hits in 97 at-bats as opponents hit .123 off the Moeller native. The 12 hits with 13 walks gave Alex a WHIP of 1.13.

In postseason action, Wimmers pitched 4 innings of 1 run, 9 K baseball in the CCBL semi-finals, proving to be a vital cog for the Bourne Braves to their first league championship.

NICE! Top RHP pitcher in the Cape is a HUGE honor! Looks like we will see lots of scouts in the stands this year.
