The SeaWolves

The ‘Wolves: 2014 Erie Seawolves Roster

Position Group to Watch: The infield. All four members of the infield are a part of the TigsTown Top 50, with Eugenio Suarez (SS) and Devon Travis (2B) just outside the top ten. All four can still make improvements in the field, but are already impressive, and will ultimately look to damage at the plate with their bats. As this group goes, so too will likely go Erie.

The Scout(s)takes

Devon Travis (2B): "Seriously though, that kid's a ball player. I've never been blown away by his tools, but he can play the game. He gets everything he can out of what he's got and he grinds in every part of the game. He's a big leaguer, just not a star."

Steven Moya (OF): "The progress I've seen Moya make in the last two to three years is absolutely incredible. I almost NP'd him a couple of years ago because I didn't think enough would come together for the power to play. He's really transformed himself. The coordination has come and the athleticism now shows. He's hitting tougher pitches and being a bit more selective. He's on the verge of something."

Jose Valdez (RHP): "I really liked the fastball that I saw from him last year; it has impressive life at the plate and the velocity can be truly overpowering at times. He has the stuff and mentality to pitch at the back end of games, and I won't be surprised if helps out in the middle innings in Detroit this year."
