Welcome to the latest edition of the Indy Ball Weekly Perspective

The Kansas City T-Bones have sent Justin Bass to the Florence Freedom for former Kansas State Wildcat, Byron Wiley.

Wiley, a 22nd round pick in the 2008 MLB June Amateur Draft from Kansas State University by the Cincinnati Reds, was a standout for the Freedom in 2013. He was second in home runs (15) and second in RBI (53) while batting 290 in 93 games.

Bass, who was a 21st round pick in the 2007 MLB June Amateur Draft from Clements HS by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, has seven professional seasons under his belt. In two seasons with the T-Bones, Bass has batted .292 with seven home runs and 74 RBI. Bass was hampered by injuries in 2013, but still managed to go 10 for 12 in the stolen base department.

Despite not playing for the last two years, the T-Bones have acquired Wiley who is coming off a career year. His best season prior came in 2009 with the Dayton Dragons, the Single A affiliate of the Reds. According to the T-Bones website, Wiley's versatility in the outfield and discipline at the plate is a huge positive.

“Byron is an athletic outfielder who can play all three outfield positions,” said T-Bones manager John Massarelli. “He’s a left-handed bat with some pop and excellent strike-zone discipline. He’s a nice addition for us.”
