Quick Hits

Lots of interesting notes on our local athletes:

David Freitas (Elk Grove H.S.) has been promoted to AAA-Norfolk by the Baltimore Orioles. He began the season with Double-A Bowie.

J.D. Davis (Elk Grove H.S.) was doing so well after being drafted in June by the Astros that he's already been promoted from Short Season A-Tri City in the New York/Penn League to Class A Quad Cities in the Midwest League. He's rejoined high school teammate Jake Rodriguez on that club. Davis is playing third base in the minors. Rodriguez is a catcher.

On Wednesday, Brian Detrick placed 1st in Men's Slalom in the 2014 Regional Waterski Championships at Laku Landing Lakes just outside of Denver.

On Tuesday, Emelda Malm-Annan (Monterey Trail H.S.) of Golden State Throwers won the national Junior Olympic hammer throw title in Texas.

Jordan Johnson (Franklin H.S.) has signed a pro contract with the Giants, thus forgoing his final two years at Cal State - Northridge.
