College Baseball Prospect Update: Pitchers 2.25.11

Every weekend Prospect Junkies will be keeping tabs on the performances of the Top College Baseball Prospects and feeding their stats and our insights into one convenient place.

There are a number of key matchups this week among our top 25 teams. #6 Stanford travels to #3 Vanderbilt for a true benchmark series for these two Omaha hopefuls. Of course, one could argue that Stanford just came out on top of a benchmark series last weekend when they took 2 of 3 on the road against Rice.

#4 TCU hosts #12 Cal State Fullerton and but we won’t get a Noe Ramirez v. Matt Purke matchup as Purke was pushed to Sunday due to blisters.

#21 California and #22 Coastal Carolina will also face each other once this weekend at the Caravelle Resort Baseball at the Beach event in Myrtle Beach, SC.

**Rankings are based on our Weekly Top 25**

Pac 10

Mike Appel – RHP – Stanford – So. 6IP 7H 2ER 3BB 3K. (L, 0-1). Tough luck loss @ Vanderbilt.

Kevin Miller – RHP – California – Sr. 7.1IP 1H 0ER 1BB 10K. (W, 1-0). Not sure if Miller is a legit draft prospect but outings like this against ranked teams (#22 Coastal Carolina) can make people like me take notice.

Kurt Heyer – RHP – Arizona – So. 7.2IP 4H 0ER 0BB 4K. (L, 1-1)

Jake Barrett – RHP – Arizona St. – So. 4IP 8H 4ER 2BB 5K.


Sonny Gray – RHP – Vanderbilt – Jr. 6IP 3H 1ER 4BB 6K. (W, 2-0). The Gray/Apple matchup lived up to the hype in a 2-1 Vanderbilt victory.

Ryne Stanek – RHP – Arkansas – Fr. 5.2IP 3H 2ER 1BB 2K. Interesting that they started the blue chip freshman and brought Baxendale (last week’s Friday starter) out of the pen.

DJ Baxendale – RHP – Arkansas – So. 5IP 4H 0ER 1BB 7K (W, 2-0).
