Q & A with Jordan Humphreys

 

Sam Hyman: Jordan, you have had a terrific season so far recently being named a South Atlantic League All-Star. How would you assess your performance in Columbia?

 

Jordan Humphreys: It's been great so far. I am lucky enough to have a great offense and defense behind me.

 

Sam Hyman: How has it been spending time in Columbia with your teammates on and off the field?

 

Jordan Humphreys: My teammates are unreal and we all get along really well. The fans are just as good and react with so much energy all the time. It's been fun so far.

 

Sam Hyman: What's been working for you on the mound this season? How have you been able to continue your success in each start?

 

Jordan Humphreys: I would say being consistent with my delivery, throwing strikes, and getting quick outs.

 

Sam Hyman: Do you see yourself as a strikeout pitcher? Is it something that helps build confidence?

 

Jordan Humphreys: I would say it is, but I am just focused on getting outs any way I can.

 

Sam Hyman: Your ultimate goal is to make it to the big leagues, so what are some things you need to do to improve on a in order to reach that point eventually?

 

Jordan Humphreys: There are always things to get better with in baseball. My delivery always needs more polishing and I need to remain focused in every upcoming start.

 

Sam Hyman: Before you got drafted, who was the baseball team you cheered for growing up?

 

Jordan Humphreys: I was a pretty big Tampa Bay Rays fan growing up since I lived in Florida. But now I don't really pay much attention because I am so focused on the Mets organization.

 

Sam Hyman: Have you had a chance to interact with any of the current pitchers for the New York Mets?

 

Jordan Humphreys: I haven't had the chance yet, but former Met Bill Wagner stopped by our clubhouse earlier this year and gave us some really good advice on how to make it to the big leagues which was cool.

 

Sam Hyman: When you were at Crystal River High School in Florida, did you know you wanted to try and play baseball professionally?

 

Jordan Humphreys: Not really. When was in high school, I didn't know I was going to make it to this level. I was a hitter and pitcher back in the day and decided on being a pitcher because I continued to throw harder throughout high school.

 

Sam Hyman: Jordan, if you could go one place in the world where would you go?

 

Jordan Humphreys: Australia.

 

Sam Hyman: Thank you so much for your time and best of luck the rest of the season.

 

Jordan Humphreys: No problem. Thanks for having me.
