Tanner Campbell, RHP. Campbell is a freshman pitcher for WVU. Coming out of high school in Florida he was a very highly sought after pitcher, ranking one of the top 500 players in the country. The Mountaineers bring a veteran rotation into 2016, so it might take a season or two for Campbell to find consistent playing time…but he is a big part of the programs future.
KC Huth, of. Huth is starting the year off…very well. He is hitting .387 with a .424 OBP and 2 HR. He was also named Big 12 Player of the Week. He is the offensive heart of WVU, and it looks like he is going to have a fantastic season.
Andrew Zitel, an infielder, only has 6 at bats on the season, though is hitting .333. Another of many very talented freshman on the team, he is just not getting the at bats (yet!) to tell what kind of player he is.
Brandon Boone is a relief pitcher right now, but in his limited innings thus far is proving to be very effective: in 3 IP he has allowed only two hits and stuck out five, with only one walk. I think there is a very good chance that he will get some starting assignments before the season is over.
Through 17 at-bats, Caleb Potter has a .176 AVG and .263 OBP. But he does have a HR and drawn two walks.
Infielder Cole Austin is hitting .229, but is tied for 2nd on the team with two HR.
Kyle Davis leads the team with three home runs, and is also hitting .300 with a .378 OBP. My favorite stat of his is that he has more walks (4), than K’s (3).
Ross Vance is a very good pitcher. I was able to get his autograph on the first night of the series (he is the Friday night starter), and we talked a little and he is a super cool dude. He would pitch and win game two, and on the season he is 3-0 with a 0.95 ERA and only 11 hits allowed though 19 IP. He has stuck out 13, and only allowed four walks.
Shaun Corso is leading the team with a .400 AVG, and is also second with a .400 OBP. Granted he has had a couple less at bats them some of the starters (20), but it looks like the sophomore infielder will be having a very nice season.
BJ Meyers was rated by Perfect Game to be the team #1 draft prospect, which says a lot about his talent. On the season he is 2-1 with a 1.71 ERA and 14K/3BB through 19 innings.
Jackson Cramer is also having a very nice start to the season, hitting .273 with a .368 OBP and 1 HR. He leads the team in K’s with 13, but with his power potential you are more than happy to look past them. Last season he hit 8 HR with a fantastic .909 OPS. I think he is one of the more exciting prospects on the team, and I look forward to seeing what his numbers look like in a couple months.
Jimmy Galusky, inf, is hitting .303 AVG/OBP. He is a good hitter, but has yet to take a walk so his OBP is still a little low. Its early in the season, and the lack of walks is more a fluke than anything.
