Hayhurst To Make Debut

If you are asking yourself who Dirk Hayhurst is, you are not alone. The 27 year old hurler will get the start Saturday afternoon in San Francisco after 6 seasons in the Padres organization in the role of "anonymous henchman". Hayhurst has been given this opportunity because he has turned himself into a suspect type prospect after years of having only organizational value and providing minor league depth. The Padres are officially using the rest of this season as a glorified tryout for 2009 and beyond. Hayhurst will be pitching to convince the Padres that he is worthy of being on the 40 man roster this offseason, otherwise the Friars would have to make him available in the Rule V draft.
FF wishes Dirk Hayhurst all the luck in the world, and has some advice for the rookie: don't give up any runs, because your "offense" doesn't like to score...

Couldn't have blogged it better myself. Hope he makes the most of his cup o coffee. :)
