Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Mitch Keller, Ian Happ, Jordan Stephens, and Logan Shore.

Prospect of the Day:

Mitch Keller, RHP, Pittsburgh Pirates (High-A Bradenton): 6 IP, 5 H, BB, 7 K
Making his High-A debut, Keller missed not a beat in running to five his streak of starts without allowing an earned run – a span of 29 innings (and counting). His heavy fastball runs up to 95, and he pairs it with a nasty hook that’ll flash plus when he’s able to land it consistently. With last year’s arm issue hopefully in his rearview at this point, he looks the part of Pittsburgh’s next best pitching prospect.

Field Generals: The Fall Window


Ian Frazer

The challenges of the regular season are more obvious for college coaches, yet the fall is where things start to come into focus.

I’ve said in this space before that coaching is essentially the practice of making adjustments in the best way possible, and Brian O’Connor, head coach of the 2015 College World Series champion Virginia Cavaliers, would agree.

One of the top collegiate arms squared off with one of the nation's best squads last weekend; here are eyewitness accounts of players who stood out.

I was down in Charlottesville this weekend for the highly anticipated matchup between Virginia and East Carolina, featuring one of the top arms in the draft class, Jeff Hoffman (East Carolina), and one of the deepest teams in the country in UVA. While there were plenty of 2014 draft eligibles on display, Virginia’s impact talent stretches to the 2015 and 2016 classes, as well. We’ll have some additional notes on ECU players, as well as further collegiate and prep updates, in next Monday’s extended Draft Ten Pack.

Player Spotlight: Jeff Hoffman (RHP, East Carolina)
