This was the last weekend of the regular season for almost everyone in college baseball which really means the draft is getting close. Next week will be the conference tournaments, and the scouting departments from all the clubs will be out in full force trying to see a large number of prospects all at a single site. It also means that teams are running out of chances to get a look at guys, and the scouting directors and cross checkers are out in full force to try and re-affirm what their local scouts have been telling them. Unfortunately for a lot of the top names in this draft, they probably left the decision makers wanting more on this weekend. Check out all the results inside.
Stephen Strasburg, RHP, San Diego St.
7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 10 K
2 runs? What is wrong with Strasburg?
Alex White, RHP, North Carolina
7 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 6 K
Nice outing from White on a weekend when a lot of potential first rounders got lit up.
Mike Leake, RHP, Arizona St.
9 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 12 K
Leake has been dominant in a year no one other than Strasburg has dominated. He has solidified himself in the top 15 picks.
James Paxton, LHP, Kentucky
5.1 IP, 11 H, 9 R, 8 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
Well at least he didn’t walk anyone.
Andrew Oliver, LHP, Oklahoma St.
2.1 IP, 7 H, 8 R, 8 ER, 3 BB, 1 K
Another ugly outing from one of the college pitchers projected to go in the Cardinals’ range.
Mike Minor, LHP, Vanderbilt
7.2 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 7 K
At least he got deep.
Rex Brothers, LHP, Lipscomb
4.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 K
Does anyone want to move up the draft board?
Kyle Heckathorn, RHP, Kennesaw St.
9 IP, 11 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 15 K
Big righty has some of the best stuff in the draft. The question is can he control his stuff and will he eventually have to move to the pen.
Kendal Volz, RHP, Baylor
3.2 IP, 12 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Volz has had a pretty rough season.
Brooks Raley, LHP, Texas A&M
6 IP, 9 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Another lefty getting beat around on Friday night.
Alex Wilson, RHP, Texas A&M
2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K
Sam Dyson, RHP, South Carolina
9 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 13 K
Tommy John survivor has huge arm. He was one of the few that actually tried to separate himself a little this weekend.
Chad Jenkins, RHP, Kennesaw St.
9 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 10 K
Doesn’t possess the same stuff as his teammate Heckathorn, but he throws a ton of strikes and is a pretty safe bet to be a middle of the rotation starter.
Dustin Ackley, 1B/OF, North Carolina
4-5, 2 2B, HR, 4 R, 4 RBI, BB, SB
Still the top hitter in the draft.
Tony Sanchez, C, Boston College
2-6, R, 3 RBI
Alex Wilson, RHP, Texas A&M
2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Brad Boxberger, RHP, USC
6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 8 K
One of the better outings of the year for Boxberger.
Kyle Gibson, RHP, Mizzou
1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Just a tune-up against a non-conference opponent this weekend.
Grant Green, SS, USC
Only the 4th homer of the year for Green.
