College Draft Prospect Stat Roundup Week 12

Although the penultimate weekend of the regular season in college baseball looms, the college position players rankings remain muddled, which is uncommon for this late in the season. But a few of the top college position players had strong statistical performances this weekend.

• Oregon State outfielder Michael Conforto, who is hitting. .410/.588/.625 with a 20.8 percent walk rate, showed his plus raw power in game action, hitting his fifth home run along with a pair of doubles to go with three walks against one strikeout.

• Indiana catcher/outfielder Kyle Schwarber also hit a home run, his eighth on the season, and a pair of doubles. Schwarber is hitting .345/.452/.598 with a 15.2 percent walk rate against 10.9 percent strikeout rate.

• North Carolina State shortstop Trea Turner had a superb weekend in many different facets of the game. His impact speed was on full display this weekend, swiping six bags (four more than any other player on the list and half as many as the 35 other players combined). Turner stole four bases Sunday, including home. Turner reached base 13 times in 15 trips to the plate, going 9-for-11 (.818/.867/1.363). Turner, who has a 14.2 walk rate and 10 percent strikeout rate, demonstrated his contact ability and control of the strike zone with four walks against one strikeout. His isolated slugging is approaching .200 at .193 after hitting his seventh home run of the season, second triple and ninth double.

• Switch-hitting Casey Gillaspie continued to do what is expected of a potential first-round first baseman college first baseman: hit for power and get on base at a high clip. Gillaspie belted a pair of home runs and a double against Bradley while drawing four walks against a lone strikeout. He has demonstrated superb control of the strike zone and contact frequency for a power hitter by striking out in 9.0 percent of plate appearances against 18.1 percent walks. Gillaspie is hitting .402/.511/.687 on the season and will face a talented Dallas Baptist pitching staff with multiple arms that can touch the mid-90s in Cy Sneed and Paul Voelker.

• Two of the top arms in the ACC squared off when Maryland righthander Jake Stinnett faced Notre Dame righthander Pat Connaughton, with both arms tossing complete games. Connaughton, whose control has improved over the last month as he moves father away from basketball season, surrendered two walks in 31 batters faced (6 percent), striking out four while allowing two earned runs. But Jake Stinnett tossed a complete game shutout on four hits. He struck out 13 of the 34 hitters he faced (38 percent), one short of a career high. His heavy fastball with plus life helped produce 11 groundouts against two flyouts.

• Three starting pitchers who could factor into the top half of the first round did not throw this weekend: East Carolina righthander Jeff Hoffman (arm soreness), Texas Christian lefthander Brandon Finnegan (shoulder soreness) and UNLV righthander Erick Fedde.
