Laber, Fuqua Named to Top Indy Prospects List

10/12/2011 2:52 PM -
The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks have two of the best young pitchers in independent baseball, according to Baseball America magazine. They are the only two players from the American Association named to the list.
 
LHP Jake Laber was ranked the second best prospect in independent baseball, while RHP Kevin Fuqua checked in at number five on the list, which was compiled in the October 17th issue of Baseball America. The Top 10 Prospects List considers all players in independent baseball age 25 and younger.
 
Laber, 25, was 10-7 with a 3.55 ERA in 23 games (21 starts) for Fargo-Moorhead in 2011. The Fargo native pitched a team-record 139.1 innings and struck out a team-high 100 batters. It was the second consecutive season Laber reached double-digit wins for Fargo-Moorhead.
 
Fuqua, 22, was 1-2 with a 1.60 ERA and three saves in 21 games for the RedHawks in 2011. After signing with the RedHawks out of LaSalle University (PA) in June, Fuqua pitched 33.2 innings and struck out 29 batters. In 20 games out of the bullpen, Fuqua had a 0.83 ERA for the RedHawks.
