The playoffs in the minor leagues can often mean a new group of players. The Durham Bulls made this year's International League playoffs after they won their division. Throughout the year the team used a combination of Ali Solis and Curt Casali as catchers. However, towards the end of the season Casali was called up to Tampa leaving an opening in Durham. Enter Montgomery Biscuits catcher Luke Maile.
Maile is a former Kentucky Wilcat and was drafted by the Rays by the Rays in the 8th round of the 2012 MLB Draft. Maile seems like he could be a decent catcher, but should be back in Durham again next year for a little bit more seasoning. That said, today's #MyCardMonday is a little bit of a head start on picking up next year's Durham Bulls cards.
This is Luke Maile's only certified autograph and comes from the 2012 Donruss Elite set. While this set has some really cool patch cards featuring the logos of the college players who signed for the set, Maile only has this basic autograph. The card features a sticker autograph and a picture of Maile in his Kentucky baseball uniform. There are colored parallels of this card, but they a little outrageous for a guy who hits .270 in the minors.
