Mack Draft: – Kelby Tomlinson, George Springer, Tyler Anderson, Danny Hultzen, Andrew Chafin

Kelby Tomlinson – This was my first look at Tomlinson, a transfer from Seward County Community College. The first thing you notice is his athleticism, as he is really put together well with good size and some strength. I had only been aware of him after being named the third best prospect in the Jayhawk League where he was hailed for his combination of speed and defense. He didn’t have an opportunity to show off his speed, but he made a few nice looking plays at short, showing good instincts and overall feel for the game.


George Springer came into the game struggling a bit, only hitting .138, but broke the game open in the 8th with a triple to right center. Just before the at-bat during a pitching change, he was talking to a few players taking notes next to the dugout and told them he was swinging first pitch. He called his shot and crushed it, legging out the triple. He’s back up to hitting .257. –


Tyler Anderson – Aside from watching some third-party footage of Anderson, this was my first chance to see him pitch. I really had a different picture painted of his style and abilities, which is why it is always important to me to try and watch any player perform to get a sense of what they’re all about, and more importantly, what they could become at the next level.


Danny Hultzen continues to dominate on Friday nights for the Virginia Cavaliers as he lasted 6.2 innings, giving up just five hits and three walks while striking out 14, Interesting enough, he struck out at least two batters in six out of the seven innings pitched. The Cavaliers were able to take the opening game of the series behind his strong performance by a scoreline of 5-0.


Kent State pitcher Andrew Chafin: The Golden Flashes received yet another outstanding performance from the left-handed hurler. Chafin struck out six batters and allowed just four runs in seven shutout innings in a 2-0 victory over Coastal Carolina. Chafin is increasing his draft stock with every dominant performance.
