RHP Will Cox, Mississippi State -- Cox had a 4.64 ERA in 21 1/3 innings for the Bulldogs this past spring. He hopes to establish an even larger role for himself in 2013 after having a good summer. He made 11 appearances and had a 2.56 ERA in 45 2/3 innings of work. He also struck out 46 and walked 10. http://www.perfectgame.org/Articles/View.aspx?article=7522
Bobby Wahl RHP Mississippi- Had a big season for Ole Miss striking out 104 and walking just 32 in 99 IP. He was 7-4 with a 2.55 e.r.a.. Fastball, slider, change guy with low to mid 90′s heat and solid movement and command. He was used out of the pen for Cotuit on the Cape in 2011 and scouts saw a live fastball in the shorter bursts touching 97 (but he is a starter) where he was 1-1 with a .91 e.r.a in 17 games with 39K and 11 BB in 23 IP. http://pinetarpress.com/top-11-2013-draft-august-15th-2012/
Zack Collins C/1B American Heritage HS, Plantation, Fla. Ht.: 6-3. Wt.: 215. B/T: L/R. Collins has one of the best bats in the 2013 class and consistently drives balls both in batting practice sessions and game play. His lefthanded swing gets the barrel through the zone with authority. He also shows arm strength and is a solid receiver. He is verbally committed to Miami
Friends, I'll make this short: Next Friday I'll be undergoing TJ Surgery to repair a ligament that was injured because of throwing with TOS.
Chad Kuhl, rhp, New Market, (Jr., Delaware): Kuhl showed average to above-average velocity this summer with his four-seam fastball, working in the 90-93 range. His fastball is sometimes flat and straight, and he'll need to improve that pitch to enhance his draft potential next June. Kuhl employs a short, quick delivery and a three-quarters slot. His second pitch is a 79-82 curve with late 11-to-5 break. He also shows an 82-84 changeup with below-average depth. Kuhl's control for New Market was greatly improved over his spring season for Delaware, when he went 5-5, 4.42 with 64 strikeouts and 36 walks in 77 innings. In 41 Valley innings, he went 4-0, 1.11 with 39 strikeouts and 17 walks, holding hitters to a .167 average. http://ht.ly/1m4q1n
