It appears as though six Kentucky players will be on teams in the prestigious Cape Cod League this summer, at least according to team rosters. Working to confirm through UK, but league starts this week. I've linked Cape Cod League site and the players are listed below:
Trevor Gott - Orleans Firebirds
J.T. Riddle - Orleans Firebirds
Jerad Grundy - Orleans Firebirds
Corey Littrell - Harwich Mariners
A.J. Reed - Harwich Mariners
Matt Reida - Harwich Mariners
Zac Zellers - Hyannis Harbor Hawks
Walt Wijas - Hyannis Harbor Hawks

That will be great experience for those guys.
Cam Flynn is done... signed with Marlins.
can't really blame him all that much. With the support the Marlins have put in changing their name, bringing in Ozzie and signing big names like it's going out of style, who wouldn't wanna be a part of that? Congrats to Cam
Austin Cousino just reminded me that he is NOT going to the Cape. Playing for Team USA instead.
Jerad Grundy has joined Trevor Gott and J.T. Riddle's team in the Cape.
Littrell went four innings, no hits, eight k's tonight. Was at pitch limit when pulled.

^ TKE, what are you hearing re Grundy's plans for next year (is he likely to eventually sign to play pro, or is there a solid chance he comes back for his senior season)?
Austin Cousino tweeted at Grundy today that he was 'glad (Grundy) was back on board" in reference to 2013.
Heyyyooooo!!!! That's some seriously good news.
Some early stats from guys in the Cape (including Walt Wijas, who joined Zac Zellers with Hyannis). Also, this is a wooden bat league.
Matt Reida (6 games): .304, 2 2B, RBI
Zac Zellers (6 games): .238, 2 RBI, 3 BB, 5 steals
J.T. Riddle (5 games): .050, 2 RBI, BB
A.J. Reed (3 games): .100; As a pitcher: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, BB, K
Trevor Gott: 3 IP, 0 H, BB, 7 K, 3 saves
Corey Littrell: 4 IP, 0 H, 3 BB, 8 K
Jerad Grundy: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, BB, 5 K
Walt Wijas: 2.2 IP, H, BB, K
Here's the page to find stats:
The UK guys continue to show well in the Cape. Matt Reida went 4-for-5 with two triples, a home run and two RBI last night. He's hitting .393 and five of his 11 hits have been for extra bases. Trevor Gott went two more scoreless innings (now 5.0 for the summer) to get his fourth save in as many chances. Walt Wijas struck out three of the four batters he faced and hasn't given up a run yet either. Corey Littrell and Jerad Grundy both slated to pitch Sunday.
Good day yesterday for Jerad Grundy, who threw 5 innings, allowing only 1 hit, 0 runs, and striking out 4; Trevor Gott yielded first hit in the cape but still had his sixth consecutive scoreless inning.
Austin Cousino had a big time debut for USA Baseball Collegiate National Team: 2-4, 2 doubles, 3 runs, 3 rbi, walk, stolen base
Also, UK has compiled a web page where you can track all the summer league stuff:
Untitled Document After UK's record 45-win season, the Wildcats dispersed for various summer league's throughout the country. UK players join LSU as the nation's leader with eight players in the presitigous Cape Cod League, with centerfielder Austin Cousino also...
Trevor Gott's summer in the Cape has ended early. He had some shoulder soreness last week and was examined, but everything appears fine. Still, with the long nature of Kentucky's season and then the Cape they didn't want to push it so he's headed back to Lexington.
Final Cape Stats: 7 games, 7.2 innings, 5 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, 10 strikeouts, 4 saves
