In 2012, Ryan Verdugo made the PCL's midseason and postseason All-Star teams, ranking among the top four in the league in wins, ERA and opponent batting average. He was just the third Omaha pitcher to win 12 games since 1993.
For his efforts, the left-hander got an early trip home for the offseason without a September big-league call-up, and then was put on waivers in November.
