Distinguished guest at tonight's Sox game

UCLA baseball coach John Savage will be in Wenatchee for the next few days to check on three players who are committed to the Bruins for 2013 and 2014.

Two of those — pitcher James Kaprielian and outfielder Ty Moore — are currently playing for the Wenatchee AppleSox, who host the Kelowna Falcons to begin a four-game set.

The other, Wenatchee High School rising senior pitcher Dustin Driver, was on the Sox' opening day roster, but left the team in mid-June to focus on the showcase circuit.

Wenatchee manager Ed Knaggs, who has been friends with Savage for years, said that the UCLA coach wants to see Kaprielian and Moore play, and to make sure Moore will show up in Westwood.

The Mater Dei High School product, who was named California's Mr. Baseball for 2012, still has not made a decision on whether to sign with the New York Yankees or attend UCLA.

It seemed to be a fait accompli that Moore would go to school.

But since the Yankees, who drafted Moore in the 25th round, haven't been able to sign first-round pick Ty Hensley, a prep pitcher out of Oklahoma, more money could be available for Moore.

The re-jiggered MLB Draft signing policies give each team a pool of money to use on its top picks.

If Hensley doesn't sign, there's more money in the pool with which to tempt Moore to eschew UCLA.

Savage is trying to prevent that from happening, and has until Friday's signing deadline to do so.

For the elite players, the action in the summer isn't just on the field.
