The Chattanooga Times Free Press has an awesome article out today on Ralph Webb.

"Webb is the most accomplished running back in Vanderbilt history, but he often remains overlooked in Southeastern Conference circles due to more recognized rushers such as Georgia's Nick Chubb, LSU's Derrius Guice, Auburn's Kamryn Pettway and Alabama's Bo Scarbrough." -- David Paschall, Chattanooga Times Free Press

2018 Shortstop (#20 Overall Prospect) Xavier Edwards Commits to Vanderbilt


Tim Corbin will likely lose All-Americans like Will Toffey and Jeren Kendall before the 2018 season. He's already started to reload, adding the #20 prospect in the '18 class Xavier Edwards. Edwards is a high-level athlete who can play either shortstop or second base in the SEC. (via @xedwards9).

Drew VerHagen Earns a Call Up to Detroit

via @beckjason, Drew VerHagen has earned himself a return trip to the major leagues. The former #VandyBoy is rejoining the Detroit Tigers after an up and down season in the minors. He's been solid at AA, but AAA batting has eaten him up - to the tune of a 10.38 ERA in three appearances. Let's hope he has more success in his latest call up.
