Washburn Workhorses

Key Additions: C. Hammond

Key Losses:  B. Anastasi

Familiar faces return to the Washburn Workhorses this year as manager Mike Anderson brings back Sean Ancker, Chris Wilson, and Eli Beard.  These four combined to post a .507 AVG, 20 HR and 133 RBIs in 2014.  

The biggest addition to the team this year is Cody Hammond.  Hammond decided to test free agency this past off-season and was acquired from their league rival Oatka Quackers.  This could be the piece the Workhorses have been looking for, as they have lost to the Quackers in the World Series the past three seasons.  Hammond hit .415 with 5 HR and 33 RBIs as Quacker.

    Anderson should be dominant from the mound again, although the Workhorses won’t have him for long.  He is scheduled for knee surgery during the fourth week of play, and may not return to the team this season.  Anderson's availability will have a big impact on how this team performs in the second half of the season.

Projected Record: 7-5

Way Too Early Power Ranking: #1

Preseason Power Ranking : #2
