Former Brandon High (and Delta State) standout Brent Leach is on the roster of the Chattanooga Lookouts, who start a five-game Southern League series at Trustmark Park in Pearl on Monday. Leach, 26, isn’t a Top 10-type prospect, but he has to be a pitcher on the parent Los Angeles Dodgers’ radar. He was protected on their 40-man roster over the winter. Leach is a 6-foot-5 left-hander who throws fairly hard. In four games this season, he has a 1.23 ERA and 9 strikeouts (6 walks) in 7 1/3 innings. The Lookouts, a Dodgers affiliate now after so many years with Cincinnati, have another Mississippi-connected player on the club in veteran right-hander Tim Corcoran, a Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College product. There should be a good chance to see both relievers over the course of the five-game series with the Mississippi Braves.
