2013 MLB Draft: Sleepers (College Edition), Part Four


Part one of the series Part two of the series Part three of the series Brian Holberton, OF/C (North Carolina): Holberton’s a very interesting case. He’s shown off solid hit tools and a fantastic approach both this year and last (.297/.404/.398), while being a pretty impressive all-around athlete. You know, the type that can just Read More

2013 MLB Draft: College Pitching Recap, March 8-10


Notes: Minnesota lefty Tom Windle threw a no-hitter against Western Illinois. So there’s that. While he can be inconsistent, I think he’s worth a first round selection. Texas Tech righty Trey Masek‘s scoreless streak is now at 32 innings. He’s not only posting strong K and walk rates, but impressive groundball to flyball ratios (15-2 Read More


2013 MLB Mock Draft, Version 4

Still way too far out, I know, but there are some names creeping closer to first round consideration. # Team Pick 1 Astros Sean Manaea, LHP (Indiana State): Excellent frame, excellent stuff for any pitcher, especially a lefthander. 2 Cubs Clint Frazier, Read More

The¬†Dillon Overton/Scott Frazier¬†matchup in Friday’s Oklahoma – Pepperdine game wasn’t a complete letdown as the 10-7 score indicated (although it’s pretty close). Both pitched respectively outside of a weird Bottom 3rd, Top 4th 13 run outburst between the two teams. Frazier’s performance was poor, but Overton continued to miss bats, even with poor control. Potential Read More


2013 MLB Draft: Which pitcher goes after Appel, Manaea, Stanek?


OK, so the title should really be: “Who comes after Appel, Manaea, Stanek, Crawford”, but I just cut it short. In reality, that mistake could still be OK, because while Jonathon Crawford‘s stuff is nasty, he still has to convince some teams that he has the consistency to be a front line starter. For this Read More
