Not really a whole lot to talk about tonight. But let's at least look at the rookie of the pack, Johnny Ard.

Johnny Ard was the 20th pick in the first round of the 1988 June draft by the Minnesota Twins out of Manatee Community College.

He pitched in the Twins system until after the 1990 season when he went to the Giants system to finish out his career.

His minor league numbers are pretty good overall, but he never got a chance to pitch at the Major League level. In six seasons he put together a 49-33 record with 485 strikeouts and a 3.54 ERA. He ended his career after the 1993 season with the Double-A Shreveport Captains of the Texas League.
