Reliever Derek Self: Self spent the 2014 season between Potomac and Harrisburg as a reliever. He would pitch at the end of games finishing 24 of the 42 that he pitched in. He combined to pitch 66 and two-thirds, and struck out just over eight per nine innings. Self’s biggest issue was allowing the long ball and his allowed a professional career high of eight.
Self was drafted by the Nationals in the ninth round of the 2012 draft out of the University of Louisville and he is not a top 20 prospect in the Nats chain according to MLB.com.
