Zack Jones Drafted By Minnesota In 4th Round
Zack Jones is the 11th San Jose State Spartan taken in the first 10 rounds of the MLB First-Year Players Draft
NEW YORK – San Jose State University junior right-handed pitcher Zack Jones was drafted Tuesday by the Minnesota Twins in the fourth round of the 2012 MLB First-Year Players Draft.
Jones was taken with the 130th overall pick in the fourth round. He is the 11th Spartan to be taken in the first 10 rounds, and the second in as many years.
“I’m kind of speechless. It’s a dream come true,” said Jones about being drafted Tuesday. “It was a little bit of a surprise. I was told rounds four through seven. I was on the phone with the Nationals as I got drafted by the Twins.”
Jones was at home Tuesday watching the live stream of the draft online with close family and friends when he heard the news.
“I think it’s going to be pretty similar to the Cape Cod League. Everyone is going to be pretty good obviously,” said Jones of his expectations for the next level. “My progress is based off my work ethic. I’m extremely motivated and extremely anxious to get better.”

Rivera signs free agent deal with Arizona Diamondbacks
Rivera, the program's all-time saves leader, was dominant out of the bullpen througout his Sunbird career.
Bookmark and Share
Fresno Pacific right-handed pitcher Michael Rivera signed a minor league deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday, making him the third FPU player from this year's draft class to be picked up by a professional team.
Rivera, the program's all-time saves leader, struck out 85 batters and walked just 35 in 77 career innings. This past season he led the team with a 3.18 ERA and recorded seven saves while holding opponents to a .158 batting average. His pitching arsenal features a mid-90s fastball, with devastating secondary pitches to complement his velocity.
Rivera threw a bullpen session for a Diamondbacks' scout this afternoon and was offered a deal just 20 minutes later. He'll join former teammate Jesse Darrah, Arizona's 8th-round pick from a year ago, in the Diamondbacks' system, bringing the total number of FPU baseball alums playing professionally up to eight.
"I'm really excited to be given this opportunity," said Rivera. "It's great to be able to get my foot in the door. Now I've just got to work hard, stay in shape and prove that I belong there. The Diamondbacks have a lot of good players in their system already and I'm excited to be a part of it."
"I'd like to thank Coach Hirschkorn, he's done a lot for me throughout my time at FPU. I'd also like to thank the coaching staff, especially Jordan Keener for helping me with my pitching and the mental aspect of the game. Being at FPU was a great experience. I grew not only as a baseball player, but as a person. It was a great atmosphere to be in and there's such a good support system there."

Great Fall Voyagers

  2010 Season Preview:

For now, there are no rookies on the Great Falls infield. From that Great Falls Tribune article, manager Chris Cron says his starters will likely be Pangilinan, Tezak, Davis and Silverio. Silverio's prospect stock continued to slip with a brutal showing at the plate for the Intimidators. For anyone to believe in him, he's going to have to hit this summer. Pangilinan hit .299 with a .778 OPS out of high school for Bristol last year. He could be an intriguing name to follow this year.

APPALACHIAN LEAGUE: Sox Slugger Strong In Defeat


By Tim Hayes
Sports Writer / Bristol Herald Courier
Published: August 28, 2009

BRISTOL, Va. – Bristol White Sox first baseman Leighton Pangilinan has been a hit in his first season as a professional.

The California native went 2-for-3 and raised his batting average to .296 on Thursday night in Bristol’s 8-2 Appalachian League loss to the Pulaski Mariners at DeVault Stadium.

Pangilinan connected for a RBI double in the third, doubled again in the sixth and drew a walk in the eighth. He’s shown a nice power stroke this season, which was one of the reasons the Chicago White Sox drafted him in the 40th round of June’s Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.

He hit .476 with nine home runs and 42 RBIs as a senior at Escalon High School in Northern California. While he admits that moving from the West Coast to Southwest Virginia has been a bit of a culture shock, it hasn’t bothered him on the field.

“It’s been a lot of fun,” Pangilinan said. “It’s a great experience and really good competition, of course. It’s a lot different from high school.”

Pangilinan had the ultimate highlight on July 6 in his professional debut at Johnson City. On the first pitch of his first at-bat, Pangilinan smashed a ball over the right-center field fence at Cardinal Park.

“I was surprised I hit it out,” Pangilinan said. “It was the first pitch … It was right there, and I swung as hard as I could.”

Pangilinan was one of the few highlights for the BriSox (25-38) on Thursday. Four Bristol pitchers combined to allow 12 hits and eight different Pulaski players had at least one hit.

Outfielder Fred Bello led the Mariners, going 2-for-4 with four runs scored, three RBIs and an impressive inside-the-park home run in the ninth inning.

Meanwhile, Pulaski pitchers John Housey and Jordan Merry combined on a five-hitter. Housey (3-2, 2.95 ERA) struck out six in 5 1/3 innings and Merry closed it out for his fifth save.

Bristol has an off day today before playing its final home game on Saturday against Pulaski. While many players are tiring of the daily grind and anticipating getting home for the
offseason, Pangilinan is still producing at the plate.

“I’m just trying to stay focused on the game and not worry about home so much,” he said.

Recent Escalon High graduate Leighton Pangilinan has signed a contract with the Chicago White Sox and is headed to Bristol, Virginia to start his professional baseball career. He was drafted by the Sox and officially signed with the club on Sunday. Marg Jackson/The Times

Pangilinan Signs With Chi Sox


Deciding to seize the opportunity that is in front of him, Escalon High School Class of 2009 graduate Leighton Pangilinan is now a professional baseball player.

The 18-year-old signed a contract on Sunday, June 28 with the Chicago White Sox organization, after being drafted by the Sox earlier in the month. He is due to report today, July 1, to his new team, the Bristol White Sox in Bristol, Virginia. The Bristol squad is a Rookie league team, playing in the Appalachian League. They play their home games at the 2,000-seat DeVault Memorial Stadium and Pangilinan was drafted by the Major League's Chicago White Sox as a first baseman.

He was enjoying a quickly arranged 'going away' party put together by his parents, Dan and Kelly Pangilinan, at the local D'Boni's Pizza on Sunday afternoon.

The party came just a couple of hours after Pangilinan signed his name to his first professional contract.

"I was just full of energy when I got to do it," he said of signing on for what he hopes will be an eventual trip to the major leagues. "I was ecstatic.

"This is my dream, to try to get there."

A ballplayer ever since he can remember, Pangilinan has made his mark on a number of travel teams and helped propel the 2009 Escalon High Cougars to a 26-1 overall mark and an undefeated Trans-Valley League season. He also has played for the San Francisco Giants Scout Team and it was there and through Cen Cal baseball out of Oakdale that White Sox scout Adam Virchis starting taking notice of Pangilinan's abilities.

"I've always loved it," Pangilinan said of the game, adding that even though it was "a dream" to turn pro, it's not one he thought about a lot, feeling it was just that, a dream.

Now, he has a chance to make that dream a reality.

He has some specific goals for himself as he makes the transition from Escalon to Bristol.

"I will watch what I do, I don't want to make a mistake," he said. "I'll listen to everything they (coaches) say."

Pangilinan will be under the tutelage of hitting coach Jerry Hairston, a former major leaguer, at Bristol. He also takes with him many lessons learned on the Escalon and travel ball fields.

"At Escalon it was fun but we were also serious at the same time," he said.

Coach Greg Largent said he's proud to see Pangilinan take this next step in his career.

"He's matured tremendously as a person the last three years and now he will be surrounded by players just as good as he is," Largent said. "I think there's more in him that hasn't been tapped and I think he's going to take his game to the next level.

"By far he's the best hitter that has ever come through the halls of Escalon High School. We don't go 26-1 without him. There were a lot of cogs in the wheel, but he was one of the main ones."

Mom Kelly was the baseball player in the family, playing in Nebraska while in school because they didn't offer softball at the time. Dad Dan favored football and basketball, but served as assistant coach for some of his son's teams through the years. Both are extremely supportive ... and proud.

"This has been a dream of his," Dan said. "He's still got a long way to go."

But by working hard, the 6-2, 230-pound teen believes his chances for success are good.

His sweet stroke saw him compile a .476 batting average this season in league play, with 42 RBI, 14 doubles and nine homers.

Mom Kelly said she was - appropriately enough - at a Cougar summer baseball game when she got word that he had been drafted in the 40th round.

"Everybody got all excited," she said of the Cougar fans in the stands watching the game when she shared the news. "I think I've been on the phone ever since."

Pangilinan did not have a graduation party, nor did he attend Sober Grad because he had a baseball tournament the following day. So Sunday's gathering at D'Boni's served as a kind of graduation-celebration-going away party.

Pangilinan will suit up quickly for the White Sox, arriving in Bristol on July 1 and getting a chance to play. They are even providing him with a new glove and bats.

Had he not opted to sign, Pangilinan said he would have attended Delta College and played baseball there for the Mustangs. But he figures if the chance is there, he's going to take it.

"I'm nervous but I'm really, really excited to go off and do something I love to do ... for a job," he said, grinning. "I'm just going to focus on baseball, try to get to the big leagues. It'll be tough, but I'm going to try my hardest."

Zack Jones


The senior right-hander struck out nine batters in six innings as the Saints (20-5, 14-5) defeated Sobrato 4-0 to clinch the Mount Hamilton title last Tuesday. It was their first Mount Hamilton title since the Blossom Valley Athletic League adopted a three-tiered system in 1993, Coach Steve Beaulieu said. Jones improved to 13-0 and continued his hot hitting with four hits, including two doubles, in two games last week. In league play he is hitting .507 with seven home runs and 34 RBIs. "Zack is very athletic and is a tremendous competitor with a strong presence on the mound," Beaulieu said. "His fastball is in the high 80s and low 90s and he has worked real hard to develop a good fastball in the last couple years." Jones has received interest from Division I schools such as San Jose State.
