Obsessive College Pitcher Draft Watch
Posted 16 February 2013 - 09:30 AM
Apologies if this is going to be a regular main page feature. Didn't see it. Thought I would go for it.
Caveat: I just want to post articles and results. No stats. College stats are less useful than minor league stats. Just little bits about early favorites. Just a collection for folks to follow. No big whoop.
Junior Sean Manaea (0-1) pitched into the fifth inning, allowing four hits and one run with six strikeouts and three walks. The ISU southpaw was lifted in the fifth after allowing a leadoff walk to IPFW's Tyler Shepherd, who would come around to score on a fielding error with one out in the inning. The Mastodons (1-0) added to their lead later in the inning on a fielder's choice by Kristian Gayday.
Ryne Stanek started and picked up the win in his season debut, throwing four innings and allowing a run on two hits with four strikeouts.
Kubitza's Cardinal counterpart, Mark Appel (0-1), shouldered the loss after giving up five runs - two earned - with three strikeouts in 5.0 frames for seventh-ranked Stanford (0-1).
“First of all, I give Duke a lot of credit,” head coach Kevin O’Sullivan said. "I thought Jonathon [Crawford] threw the ball well."

I'd say that's pretty accurate.

"Manaea has one of the highest ceilings in the draft this year. His natural ability and untapped potential give him the ability to become a true #1. He will take at least 2 to 3 years because of the refining that is needed to be done in his delivery and pitch development."
I'd say that's pretty accurate.
Thank you its my scouting report.

He is another big lefty (6-4 225) with a nice fastball-change up. Probably isn't top of the board material, but he could end up being a nice supplemental pick.

Anyway Stanek didn't appear to have his best stuff. Only went 3 innings, faced 14 batters, gave up 2 earned runs on four hits (two doubles) while walking 2 and striking out 4 on 76 pitches.

He's maybe more of a comp round or second round guy right now, but if he keeps pitching the way he is, who knows...
4-0 in 4 starts for #2 Vanderbilt, 2 consecutive complete games, the second of which came against a very good #15 Oregon.
Advanced lefty at 6'3'' 200 lbs with good fastball in the low 90s, and a killer slider.
Vanderbilt lefties have historically done pretty well after getting drafted in the early stages.
