Nick Adenhart was only 22 and the most promising pitching prospect in the Angels organization. He passed away early this morning due to injuries sustained in an automobile accident.
I stayed up late last night to watch the Angels game just to see Nick pitch. He pitched very well, 6 shutout innings. I saw him pitch last year during spring training in Tempe, AZ. I was impressed with what I saw that day and kept tabs on him during his up and down season in AAA last year. He was expected to bounce back this year as evidenced by him earning a spot in the Angels rotation.
He will surely be missed by the Angels organization and baseball fans all around the country.
