  1. Cal Poly's strength of scheduled was ranked 233rd (Cal Poly baseball schedule scores and stats | D1baseball.com)
  2. I think we can ask the same question for Brooks Lee. Cal Poly plays in the Big West Conference. As far as I can tell, he played 6 games against a big conference opponent: 3 against USC (they finished with a losing record) and 3 against UCLA. The rest of his schedule was: Nevada Utah Valley Cal State Northridge UC San Diego San Jose State Long Beach State UC Irvine UC Riverside UC Santa Barbara CSU Bakersfield Cal State Fullerton UC Davis Hawaii Lee walked only 18 times last year in approximately 250 PA. If there's any q
  3. Not sure K rates bother Elias. He drafted a corner OF at 1-2 last year who, at an older age than a H.S. Jr., had a career 129:54 K:BB rate at Arkansas. It was a great concern to some analysts. About a week before the 2020 draft, Kiley McDaniel and David Schoenfeld were discussing players and that's what worried them about Kjerstad: https://www.secsports.com/article/29261732/2020-mlb-draft-preview-go-no-1-which-players-teams-match-best Who is a highly rated prospect you would have concerns about drafting with a top-10 pick? Schoenfield: I wouldn't touch Arkansas right field

  5. Sporting News mock has us passing on Davis, Lawlar House and Rocker for Ford. https://www.sportingnews.com/us/mlb/news/mlb-mock-draft-2021-pick-projections/en7lxdwplnga12306pyqr4ohf 5. Orioles — Harry Ford, C, North Cobb High (Kennesaw, Ga.) College outfielders Sal Frelick and Colton Cowser get brought up here often as discount picks for the Orioles, but Baltimore could take the approach of going the high school route to look for a high upside bat to take with this pick. Ford is not the prototypical catcher, offering enough speed to potentially play at second or even in the outf
  6. Fangraphs mock has us passing on Watson, Lawlar, Jobe and Rocker to take Cowser. Davis went 4th to Boston and Leiter went 2nd to Texas. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/mock-draft-2-0-3/ 5. Baltimore Orioles Pick: Colton Cowser, CF, Sam Houston State The Orioles would love to see something strange happen ahead of them in order to access one of Leiter or Davis, and they’ll jump on the opportunity if it presents itself. Barring that, they’ll likely cut a deal on one of the college outfielders, with Colton Cowser and Sal Frelick being the most frequently mentioned names. Cowser feels
  7. To give a little more color on Law's first mock, he has Pittsburgh taking Davis 1-1 (the ACC Tournament started on Tuesday and Davis went 2-5 with 2 HR's in a win against Clemson, and 3-7 with a HR in yesterday's loss to Georgia Tech). Here's what he wrote on Leiter being selected by Arizona, one pick after us: 6. Arizona Diamondbacks: Jack Leiter, RHP, Vanderbilt They’d love Lawlar, and I would say there’s a non-zero chance he gets here; if Texas takes Rocker or Leiter and Boston takes the other, that probably pushes Lawlar here, with Baltimore likely going under slot.
  8. New mock from Mayo. I really love Mayer and Davis. Would Elias even take Leiter? https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-mock-draft-2021-may-19?t=mlb-draft-coverage 1. Pirates: Marcelo Mayer, SS, Eastlake HS (Chula Vista, Calif.) The Pirates seem to have seven players still in the mix here and Mayer, who scouts have extreme confidence will hit, is right in the middle of that conversation. 2. Rangers: Jordan Lawlar, SS, Jesuit Prep (Dallas) The Mayer vs. Lawlar debate is one that could continue for years and the Rangers can take their pick of the one the Pirates
  9. Gammons wrote a long article about the effects of COVID and the lost year on the minors and the draft. Here's a blurb from the draft portion of the article: Begin with the draft, quasi-restored from five rounds to 20 and moved from the first week of June to the All-Star break in mid-July. It has seemed for weeks that the top of the draft was simple. Vanderbilt pitchers Jack Leiter and Kumar Rocker and high school shortstops Jordan Lawlar and Marcelo Mayer were going to be atop the board, with little variance, save perhaps pool money manipulation. “All along, we’ve been saying this dr
  10. I forgot to include the O's pick! 5. Orioles: Brady House, SS, Winder-Barrow HS (Winder, Ga.) House has bounced back after struggling on the showcase circuit last summer and offers some of the best power in the Draft and possibly enough athleticism to stay at shortstop.
  11. Louisville beat Vanderbilt on Tuesday. Henry Davis went 2-4 with a HR. He's now hitting .403/.520/.683 with 10 HR, 9 2B, 38 RBI, 29 walks and 15 strikeouts. He's also stolen 10 bases in 12 attempts. Callis just did an updated mock draft. Here's the top 6: 1. Pirates: Jordan Lawlar, SS, Jesuit Prep (Dallas) As a five-tool high school shortstop from the Dallas area, Lawlar draws comparisons to Bobby Witt Jr. (No. 2 to the Royals in 2019), who had louder tools but a less polished bat at the same stage of their careers. 2. Rangers: Jack Leiter, RHP, Vanderbilt Aft
  12. Henry Davis and Louisville played Clemson Fri-Saturday. Davis went 5-12 with 1 HR, 1 2B, 1 BB and 1 K in the series. On the season, in 37 games (135 AB), he's hitting .400 with 9 HR, 9 2B, 29 Walks, 15 K's. He's also stolen 10 bases in 12 attempts. He has a .520 OBP and a.667 Slg% (1.187 OPS). Defensively, he's caught 12 of 25 runners attempting to steal. Vanderbilt played Florida this past weekend. Florida won 2 out of 3. Kumar Rocker Rocker got the start on Friday night and got the win. Rocker went 5 innings, 4 hits 2 ER, 4 walks, 8 K's and threw 95 pitches. On the seaso
  13. Vanderbilt played Miss. State this weekend. Louisville's games were canceled due COVID, so no games for Henry Davis. Kumar Rocker Rocker got the start on Friday night and got the win while pitching a complete game. Rocker went 9 innings, 3 hits 1 ER, 0 walks, 8 K's, 1 HBP and threw 109 pitches. On the season, Rocker is 9-1 with a 1.55 ERA. 64 innings, 32 hits, 15 walks (2.11/9), 89 K's (12.52/9) and a .143 average against. Jack Leiter Leiter got the start on Saturday and took the loss. Leiter went 5 innings, 6 hits 4 ER, 3 walks, 8 K's, 1 HBP and threw 96 pitches.
