D1 - Sunday's Game Notes

(This is a limited report today... under the weather)

·         We’re going to go under the assumption that GSU junior OF Victor Roache’s season is over. There’s always is a change he can make it back, but the least that will happen here is many teams will pass on what looked like a guaranteed top ten pick. What will the Mets do at #12? Well, this is not the kind of injury that is going to cost Victor any of his skills and you would hope that the powers to be in Queens would recognize that they aren’t going to get too many chances to sign a bat like this one.  We’re first going to have to wait for the results from the operation and then the healing process.

·         LSU seems to have some big offensive problems. They lost two out of three games to Appalachian State and scoring only one run in the last 20 innings.  The Tigers are now 5-2, but don’t be surprised if you see a lineup shuffle before next weekend

·         Stat Lines: 

o   Iowa (2014) LHP Sasha Kuebel – 7.1-IP, 3-H, 0-R, 3-K, 1-BB

o   Appalachian State junior LHP Rob Marcello – 8.1-IP, 3-H, 1-R, 4-K

o   Miami senior LF Rony Rodriguez – 3-4, 2-RBI, 1-R, 2-2B, 1-SAC

o   Miami junior SS Michael Broad – 2-4, 3-RBI, 1-R, 1-BB, 1-SB, .333

·         Speed Check:

o   TCU LHP Brandon Finnegan (2014) – 90-92

o   Radford RHP Eddie Butler – 95

o   CSF RHP Michael Lorenzen – 94-96, 81-slider

o   CSF RHP Dylan Florio – 87-89, 91, 78-80 breaker

o   TCU Andrew Mitchell – 91-92, 94, 80-82 slider

If Roache slides to #12 because of this, the Mets should take him.

I totally agree.

This is not a structural injury that would alter his game at all.
