WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Rhymes transferred to LSU in 2011 from LSU-Eunice.  While with LSU-E, he put up some impressive power numbers with very few strikeouts.  He didn’t show the same sort of power at LSU, but still finished second in average among the teams starters, trailing only top prospect Mikie Mahtook.  Rhymes is a sophomore and can re-enter the draft twice more, so he’ll probably be a tough sign.
