Phil Ervin wasn’t just a revelation early last summer - he was an eruption. Sure, scouts were aware of Ervin and the type of tools he had, but in a matter of about two weeks he forcefully announced himself as a first round talent for the 2013 draft. It sounds strange to be able to pin down the emergence of an elite prospect to one specific period of time, but it happened for Ervin. For those two weeks, he was the king of the Cape Cod League and summer collegiate league baseball. Of course, he brings much more to the party than just a two week white hot streak, but it’s stretches like these that stick in people’s minds for a long time.
