Cesar Salazar, c
One of the two freshman catchers on the team. He is very good, and there was talk that he was going to get drafted out of High School. That did not happen, and he joined the Wildcats. He is hitting well (.276/.323/.654), and I imagine that the next time he is eligible teams will not pass on him.
Ryan Haug, c
The other freshman catcher on the team. I almost did not get him, and was lucky enough to have some parents help point him out to me after the game. He is having a fantastic season, hitting .262/.408/.344 as the teams part time catcher. Still, those are numbers he is putting up as a freshman, so its not hard to see him getting more at bats next season and getting a larger role.
Ryan Aguliar, if/of
Aguliar is the teams leading power hitter, with 6 HR on the season. He is not just a power hitter though, and getting on base at a good clip (.392 OBP). He strikes out plenty (40), but also can take a walk (28), so he is a legit bat.
Louis Boyd, if
Boyd, an infielder, is having a very nice first season with the Wildcats, hitting .254/.399/.290. Transferred from Cochise College, where he has an awesome 2014 (.343 AVG, .429 OBP).
Nathan Bannister, sp
One of Arizona’s top starters, is having a successful season (9-2, 0.92 WHIP in 112.2 IP).
It is also worth noting that he has found great success in the summer leagues as well, going 6-0, 0.98 WHIP with the Alaska League in 2013, and 4-1, 0.86 WHIP with the Cape Cod League in 2014).
JC Cloney, sp
The Wildcats other top starter, Cloney is having a great season: 6-3, 1.09 WHIP. He does not strike out a ton of guys, but he has been very successful none the less.
Kyle Lewis, if
Hitting .286/.395/.333 on the season.
