South Korean prospect Ui Cheol Nam, recently ranked #4 on Bloody Elbow's World MMA Lightweight Scouting Report, will headline Road FC 2: Alive in Seoul on April 16th. Nam will square off against Kota Okazawa in a rematch of their bout from the first Road FC event last October. Nam knocked out Okazawa in the first round of that bout. Road FC 2 will feature a host of other South Korean talent, including freestyle wrestler Young Bok Gil in a bout against Atlanta-based fighter Jaral Bowman. [HT: Nightmare of Battle]

Our favorite new
catching second base prospect doing his thing in his pro debut.
In case anyone was wondering what Hitaniel Arias looked like, wonder no more. I bought this card on eBay for $1.75, and on it his birthday is listed as 9/21/94, rather than the correct 9/20/90. He'd be a hell of a prospect if he was only 13.
Nice pic of Brett Lawrie catching a fly ball against the Netherlands. He went 0-2 with a sac fly as Canada won 4-0. He's 0-7 with 2 RBI in the Olympics all together.

Well, that sucked again. But put this afternoon's game, and the seventh inning in particular, out of your mind for the evening and focus instead on the return of the Brewers' best pitching prospect to the mound after a 50-game drug suspension. That's right, Jeremy Jeffress is once again suiting up for the Brewers--or, more precisely, the High-A Brevard County Manatees. The game starts at 6:00 Central, and you can follow it here. Go Sea Pigs!
