2021 commit Connor Simon, although not recruited as a pitcher, struck out 4 batters, in relief, for the last 4 outs, to help St Paul win their Semi Final game.

Dude has ice in his veins. Brother Martin had the bases loaded with no outs trailing by one in the 7th.

I’m not up to date either. A few years ago, the football medical redshirt rule was that the injury had to have happened before the halfway mark of the season and there was something else. Not sure what it is for baseball. Don’t think he would want to go that route tho considering his age would still hurt his stock even with him having another year of eligibility.

re: LSU Baseball 2019 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread
This doesn't really apply to recruiting and definitely doesn't warrant it's own thread, but since I'm researching summer baseball destinations for LSU players and recruits I ran across a mildly interesting tidbit:

The Kokomo Jackrabbits of the Northwoods League (formerly in the Prospect League) will have two LSU siblings on their roster. Brandon Chinea, who started his career at Tennessee but is now at Nova Southeastern, and Vinnie Costello, who plays at Hofstra.

FanGraphs new mockdraft has three LSU commits going in the first 41 picks: LINK

28. Brewers – Maurice Hampton, CF, Memphis University HS (TN)
Hampton fits the Brewers’ upside type as a young-for-the-class, up-the-middle athlete with big exit velos, though he’s raw enough to get to this pick. Hampton is also an LSU cornerback commit but should be signable in this range.

Not good.

Not good. The list doesn’t even include hinds who I think will be signable. I don’t think this class will hang on to as many guys as last year but who knows.

But it's also not any different than we already knew.

If we don't push out half the roster this offseason, that won't hurt as bad as it could.

re: LSU Baseball 2019 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread
Lewis was a little unexpected as a comp pick but it seems like he has shot up boards. We still have a bunch of guys who can get picked in the second and third rounds. I’m really curious to see what happens at C and if Garza and/or Mathis are still on the roster next season.

If they aren't, and it isn't because of the draft, our coaches have learned nothing. We can't keep turning over catchers every year an expect to have the success we're looking for.

I feel like if we hold onto Travinksi, Phillips, Doughty, and one of Cairo/Hampton/Lewis/Hinds it will be a very solid win. I expect Espino's chances are close to 0.

I can’t figure out for the life of me why Mainieri would withdraw the scholarship offer to Jacob Scherer. He’s a really good ball player. Him and Simon and one other kid carried that team to the state championship game two years in a row.

re: LSU Baseball 2019 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread
The Athletic just did a write up on some of the top LSU commits, so I thought I'd share:

quote:

Maurice Hampton, OF, Memphis University HS: Hampton is one of the very best athletes in the class and is committed to play both baseball and football at LSU. That makes him a risk for teams on draft day, as they must be absolutely sure on his signability. He’s nonetheless attractive due to his power, speed, and arm tools, all earning 60-grades, though his game approach can be raw. He’s very much a high risk/high reward type. Projection: late first round.


quote:

Rece Hinds, 3B, IMG Academy: Another LSU recruit, Hinds features tremendous raw power, at least 70-grade and perhaps 75, near the top of the scale. He also has a strong throwing arm, but his defense needs work. Of greater concern are his pure hitting skills: he has a lot of problems with contact and pitch recognition, generating enough doubts to push him down behind other hitters. That said, the power is very, very loud. Projection: late first round or early second.


quote:

Daniel Espino, RHP, Georgia Premier Academy, Statesboro, Georgia: Espino is a great contrast with Leiter. Originally from Panama, Espino is much less experienced on the diamond than Leiter and needs work with his command and changeup, but his 94-99 MPH fastball is the best prep heater in the draft and his slider flashes plus. Committed to LSU, he could go anywhere from spots 20 to 40 in the draft.

re: LSU Baseball 2019 (and beyond) Recruiting Thread
Thanks, I'll have to check that out. I know they were adding prospect writers so I was wondering what kind of draft coverage they would have.

Baseball America just published their BA500 list, here are the LSU commits:

26 Daniel Espino
35 Maurice Hampton
40 Rece Hinds
54 Jimmy Lewis
80 Cade Doughty
83 Christian Cairo
258 Alex Milazzo
259 Hayden Travinski
302 Connor Phillips

Travinski won the home run derby last night at the LBCA All-Star game at Louisiana. Hit 5 in the final round to win it and it was an absolute laser show, he was hitting them onto the Pineville Expressway.

Physically he looks like Matt Holiday already, insane how physical of a hitter he is at 18 years old. Heres a quick video
