    2017 Baseball Team Post-Signing Deadline

    Now that we know who has signed, here's how it looks like the team will be in 2017:

    Roster

    C: Amditis
    1B: Barr
    2B: Bautista
    SS: Ruiz
    3B: Michelangeli
    OF: Davison, Chester, Tackett
    DH: Cooley

    Bench: Gonzalez, Alvarez, Crocitto, Gomez, 3-4 Freshmen

    SP: Cabezas
    SP: Mediavilla
    SP: Lepore
    Weekday SP: Sosa or Pimentel

    Closer: Bartow
    Bullpen: Veliz, Studstill, Meyer, Musa, McKendry, Hammond, 2-3 other Freshmen


    Analysis

    Strengths: Speed & baserunning, defensive range, hitting for average, starting ptiching
    Weaknesses: Lack of power, lack of strong arms in the field, unproven bullpen with no lefties

    Thoughts: The success of this team comes down to Freshmen pitching and JUCO hitting. The incoming players are extremely talented, but it remains to be seen how that talent will translate. If everything comes together, this could be a National Seed that returns to Omaha. If not, this will be a 2 or 3 seed that is an easy out in Regionals

    Good info. Although, we did sign JUCO LHP Jeb Bargfeldt. He pitched at Wichita St. before transfering to Cisco College, leading them to the JUCO World Series this past spring.

    According to canesport article today we got tgese two guys as well....

    JUCO LHP Ray Catena

    Catena transfers from Broward College, where he led the Seahawk staff in appearances (22) and earned run average (0.91) last season. He played one year at the University of Southern Mississippi before transferring to Broward, and he originally played at Park Vista High School.

    Transfer SS/2B Brandon Gali

    A Polk State transfer who grew up in Louisville, Ky., Gali is a 5-foot-11, 170-pound switch-hitter he struggled last season with a .219 batting average and had 26 runs, 28 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 56 games.

    everyone seems so certain that Amditis is gonna get the job behind the plate were Collins backups that bad or is this kid that good?

    Amditis is the real deal. Would have been high round pick if not for an injury his senior year.

    Amditis is an excellent replacement. Gomez is also a solid backup and in highly limited appearances batted 0.300 last year. Competition between the two will only help. Shortstop is the only position that does not appear to have a true representative player.

    Wonder if Studstill will pitch or bat or both.

    Hopefully we have a couple backups this yr that are capable of playing and giving our guys a break every now and then. Would be nice to see romy, gomez, crocitto or another freshman to step up.

    The coaching staff is also supposedly high on Alvarez (freshman this year). Justin Smith claims on his Facebook page that he will be back, but I find that to be doubtful.

    Would be ideal to have Cabezas, Meyer, Bartow as your 7/8/9th inning guys.

    Midtown, Lepore, Pimintel, Sosa the starters

    Meh! Missing power. We would need some stellar pitching to get back to Omaha. I don't see it for next year.

    We landed Mike Perez, JUCO pitcher out of Miami Dade too.

    combined career #s for Mediavilla and Lepore

    23-4, 2.57 ERA

    The team should once again be pretty damn good if Davison, Cooley, Tackett, Amditis are the real deal.

    Meyer was actually pretty dependable. Agree on the other two though.
    We have like 8 new arms arriving so whatever the case, not a big deal.
