Bradford and Bragg surprise me, the rest not so much.
Next year the only proven pitchers we will have are Olson and Frank (assuming Koty returns and Shay doesn’t). Ornelas, Brockett, Bensen and Hood have seen action, but not likely to be one’s to really improve the team. Brockett can be a midweek starter and Ornelas can be a quality middle reliever.
Bats returning are Max, Brice, and GA. Maybe we get Colby and Griff to come back.
Really need a lot of the incoming players to be good from the start. This past class was pretty much a dud. Surprising given how highly it was ranked.
Koty is on the fence while Shay returns if not offered an opportunity at the next level. I think Brockett will battle hard for the Sunday spot with Olson & Sears (JUCO guy) battling for the Friday/Saturday slots. Of course a portal addition can & will change everything.
Gomes & Feekin aren't coming back. I'm pretty sure Chick isn't either. I can't imagine Walsh is asked back as he's been non-existent for 2 straight seasons. Griff, see Shay - same situation.
Tough to say a class is a dud after one season, especially the number of high school kids in it. Let's see what happens over the next 2 years then we'll have a better idea. There's still 8 or 9 guys in that class coming back. The 2018 class was highly touted and for me, that class was a dud.
