Former Huskies In Professional Baseball

June 20, 2006

Fifteen former Washington baseball players are currently active in affiliated Minor League Baseball while five others are plying their trade in independent baseball.

The list includes four members of the 2006 Husky team as Zach Clem and D.J. Neyens, who signed a free-agent contract after the draft, are both playing for Helena (Mont.) in the Brewers organization and Matt Lane is with Auburn (N.Y.) in the Blue Jays system. Kyle Parker signed with the hometown Mariners and is playing in Peoria in the Arizona League with the hope of heading to Everett to play with the Aquasox before too long. Tim Lincecum, incidentally, has not signed a professional contract after being drafted by the San Francisco Giants.

Listed below are each player's Major League affiliation, current minor league team (as of June 20, 2006), league and minor league level, as well as the teams and leagues for the independent ballplayers.
