UK pitcher Jerad Grundy has officially opted to return to school for his senior season. HUGE news for the baseball team's chances of keeping it rolling next year. Weekend rotation of Littrell, Grundy, Shepherd/Reed is pretty strong.
Nice weekend rotation. Also looks like all the commitments will also make it to Lexington.
Wow. Huge news. UK does a really good job of getting their signees to turn down the draft for UK.
Here are the incoming recruits who opted to turn down pro contract after being drafted last month:
2013 Drafted Newcomers
Zach Arnold, C (27th round; Mets)
Kyle Cody, RHP (33rd round; Phillies)
Chase Mullins, LHP (24th round; Rangers)
Matt Pope, RHP (38th round; Pirates)
Casey Schroeder, C (21st round; Cardinals)
To understand their actual talent and where they would've been drafted, understand that most teams know that a player is going to return to school or not before they draft him, but they take a chance anyway.
This is great news for the baseball team.
Very good news for UK baseball. Some good pitching returning for UK. Also sounds like they've signed some talented pitchers who will join the squad in the fall. Hopefully, they'll be good enough offensively to return to post-season play again in 2013.
I think the biggest question mark is probably going to be at catcher but they've got two very talented youngsters coming in. If someone like Boehm can give them a legitimate RBI threat in the cleanup spot they've got a chance to have good enough lineup with that starting pitching and bullpen depth.
