The Aggies welcome back some talented hitters from a lineup that finished last season with a .300 average, but must find a way to replace departed power hitters Brodie Greene and Joe Patterson. On the mound, John Stilson’s move from closer to weekend starter is the biggest story line entering the spring. Stilson has a great arm and is a top draft prospect, but it’ll be interesting to see how he makes the transition. - http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/baseball/news?slug=kr-tamucountdown012311



#37 - RHP Dylan Bundy Owasso HS, Oklahoma 6'0 1/2 200 - very good arm and out pitch, hard cb 11/6 rotation with sharpness, 90-94 mph fb, has been pretty much the same for last 2 years, some effort to delivery but overall very strong and competitive, shows decent control and command to advance further in pro ball. Will have to watch pitch counts with him as he develops. U of Texas commit? hmmmm. http://xmlbscout.angelfire.com/



Adam Bryant – Troy - While fellow Sun Belt star Garrett Wittels garnered all the national acclaim for his hitting streak last season, Bryant had a monster “below the radar” campaign of his own. Of course, Bryant wasn’t below the radar as far as Sun Belt Conference pitchers were concerned. The 5’10 junior batted .356 with 65 RBIs, while leading the Sun Belt with 23 HR, 70 runs and a .744 slugging percentage. He struck out just 38 times in 250 at-bats and amassed an OPS of 1.175. Bryant smashed four of his home runs en-route to Troy’s run to the Sun Belt Tournament title game, which they lost 14-10 to Wittels and FIU to fall one win short of an NCAA bid. He committed just three errors in 295 chances for a spectacular .990 fielding percentage. http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/01/21/top-11-college-baseball-ss-to-watch-in-2011



http://www.perfectgame.org/Articles/View.aspx?article=5164  - - The recently completed Perfect Game World Showcase in Fort Myers featured one of the most talented groups of players ever to play in this long running event, which dates back to 1997 and was the original Perfect Game showcase. Players are 2011 prospects: - 23. RHP Robert Michael Garcia Quiroz (Mexico City): The loose and athletic Mexico native topped out at 86 at the California Underclass Showcase a year ago but was up to 90 mph at a time when most pitchers are at less than full velocity. That’s a good sign there’s still more to come.



Jett Bandy – Arizona Bandy batted .356 with six home runs and 42 RBIs in 2010, up from .299 with 39 RBIs as a freshman in 2009. His .982 OPS, helped by a team-high 23 doubles, was the second-best on the Wildcat roster. In fact, he has stroked a whopping 44 doubles in 108 games in his first two seasons in Tucson. The junior was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 41st round coming out of high school, but the preseason All-American looks to be a much higher selection when this June’s draft roles around. - http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/01/18/top-11-college-baseball-catchers-to-watch-in-2011

Levi Michael – North Carolina - It’s hard to believe, but Michael is already a junior. The early high school graduate batted .290 with 13 home runs and 57 RBIs while helping UNC to Omaha in 2009 in what should have been his senior season in high school. He moved from second base to shortstop last year and his overall production moved-up as well. The 5’10 sophomore led the Tar Heels with his .346 average, and while his home run total dipped to nine, his slugging percentage still went up from .527 to .575. His OBP also went from .377 to .480 thanks to 44 BB and 17 HBP, compared to just 26 strikeouts. He also led his team with 20 stolen bases. http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/01/21/top-11-college-baseball-ss-to-watch-in-2011
Brad Miller – Clemson - Miller led his team with a .357 batting average to help the Tigers reach the College World Series. Now a junior, the 6’0, 185 lb. Miller scored 71 runs with 49 RBIs, 8 home runs and a team-best four triples while starting all but one of Clemson’s 70 games in 2010. His 1.018 OPS was also the second best on the Tiger roster. After the run to Omaha, Miller played the rest of the summer with the USA Collegiate National Team. He was one of just three on the roster who played for Team USA in both 2009 and 2010, becoming the first Clemson player since 2000 and 2001 to have that distinction. http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/01/21/top-11-college-baseball-ss-to-watch-in-2011

http://www.perfectgame.org/Articles/View.aspx?article=5164  - - The recently completed Perfect Game World Showcase in Fort Myers featured one of the most talented groups of players ever to play in this long running event, which dates back to 1997 and was the original Perfect Game showcase. Players are 2011 prospects: - 21. 1B/LHP Michael Gunn (Wilson, AR): Gunn isn’t a big, physical 1st base type slugger but has a very quick bat and packs plenty of power in his 6-1, 195 lb frame. He also throws in the mid 80’s from the left side off the mound.
James McCann – Arkansas - Catchers are known as “field generals”, but it says something that, as a sophomore, McCann was named a captain of a 2010 Razorback squad that was coming off a trip to the College World Series. The 6’3 backstop started 35 games as a true freshman, including all four of Arkansas’ games in Omaha. He kept that going last year by starting in all but six of his team’s 64 games. The junior batted .286 with nine home runs and 34 RBIs. The 2008 draft pick of the Chicago White Sox has committed just five errors in 108 career games to date. - http://collegebaseball360.com/2011/01/18/top-11-college-baseball-catchers-to-watch-in-2011

#39 - 1B-3B-OF Cody Asche Nebraska 6'2 210 L/R - solid hitter with above ave power potential, 20-25 type HR frequency ability, solid ML arm and runs better once underway, sub 7.0, 60, ran 4.3 straight away from home to 1b, better quickness between the bases, arm is strong with carry when on top, sinks when he throws from the side, could be competent at 3b corner ala former 1st round phenom Alex Gordon a few years back for NU. http://xmlbscout.angelfire.com/
