The Jump

The transition from High-A to Double-A is largely considered the biggest jump in baseball. Many current RoughRiders played at High-A Myrtle Beach last season. Pitcher Zach Osborne talked about moving up from Myrtle Beach and playing with some of the same guys.

Osborne was recently assigned to Myrtle Beach. Some guys thrive when they are moved up while others need time to adjust. By comparing statistics from Myrtle Beach last season and statistics from Frisco this season, it will be easier to see who thrives at the next level.
