    Was he hurt this year?
    Maybe he’s very good next year but don’t see him as a power guy.

    First half of the season he was the receiver for ceremonial first pitches. He moved well to get consitently wild throws.

    Yeah he redshirted due to injury. I don't see him as much of a power guy either but his BA is better than any of our incoming signees. We will find out early in the fall how much interest Sully has.

    That deserves a thank you, more than an emoji. I thought he hit from the right. You just made my day on that one. Thanks

    I wanted to bring this thru from the first page lineup. I've added the signed pitchers that have not been drafted as of the 17th round. I doubt very seriously we lose any other arms at this point, other than a late transfer somewhere. I've highlighted those that are still unknown but could have so much potential to step it up this coming year. We should expect plenty of innings for Cags, Neely, Fisher, Austin, and Slater. Maybe we get a good year from either Fic, Purnell, or Jameson (yes its a stretch). But the freshmen coming in and injured players coming back have some big shoes to fill and even bigger opportunity if they excel.

    Pitchers
    Starters - Jac Caglianone(L), Brandon Neely, Cade Fisher(L)
    Possible Starters - Kelly Austin, Pierce Coppola(L)???, Jake Clemente???
    Relievers - Ryan Slater, Nick Ficarrotta, Blake Purnell, Fisher Jameson, Sam Sloan???
    Signees - Jacob Gomberg(L), Hunter Jones, Frank Menendez(L), Caden McDonald, Luke McNeillie, Liam Peterson, Alex Philpott, Christian Rodriguez,
    Robert Satin(L)
    , Grayson Smith, Reilly Witmer

    That's 22 pitchers and maybe we pick up another one of two in the portal. We had 19 on this year's roster, although Coppola and Clemente were unavailable. It will be interesting to see if we lose any between now and the start of the season. The portal is open until 7/28 and once all these guys see how many arms are slated to be in fall camp, we might see some movement. Pretty impressed with the freshmen pitchers as a group, with several potential stars in McNeillie, Peterson, Menendez and Rodrigues. Any of the others could surprise as well.

    Yeah I don't either but I haven't seen anything for sure, unless I missed something. For now he's still accounted for.

    I thought he might be going somewhere else like a grad transfer for another degree.

    We have to replace the left side of the infield, catcher, best hitter in the nation in left field , top 2 arms .
    I don’t know how people can say they expect Florida back .
    Does anyone see us in the mix to even host a region ? To make the SEC T ?
