College Stat Roundup: Week 13

• Clemson righthander Daniel Gossett tossed a complete game, four-hit shutout against Notre Dame, striking out 11 against one walk. His wiry 6-foot-1, 175-pound build, nearly over-the-top arm slot and effort in his delivery concern scouts about his long-term ability to stay in the rotation, but those scouts commend his ability to compete. Gossett has been mostly 89-93, touching 95 this season with a curveball that is at least an average offering, as is his changeup. Gossett has cut his walk year each year in school, walking 2.7 per nine against 9.2 strikeouts this season.

• Another starter who has cut his walk rate by a significant margin every year is Georgia Southern lefthander Sam Howard, who went 8 2/3 scoreless innings against Western Carolina, finishing one out shy of a shutout. His fastball velocity has been 88-91 this season, ranging higher and lower at different points in the season. He has the potential for at least average control and is walking 1.8 per nine. Howard’s top secondary pitch is his average changeup, with his inconsistent breaking ball lagging behind. Howard has struck out exactly a hitter per inning.

• Mississippi State lefthander Jacob Lindgren continues to strike out hitters at a prodigious rate after retiring nine hitters via strikeouts in six innings. The lefthander with a plus fastball-slider combo has struck out 45 percent of all hitters this spring. There is some effort and stiffness to his delivery, leading to a walk rate of 4.3 per nine, but still good for a strikeout/walk ratio of 3.9.

• With a strong 6-foot-4, 230-pound frame, Florida Gulf Coast outfielder Michael Suchy looks the part of a power hitter with a sculpted physique. That power played in game action against East Tennessee State with four extra-base hits, including a home run. He is hitting .322/.379/.536 with eight home runs while playing in a pitcher’s park (78 Park Factor) while chipping in 10 steals. In 243 plate appearances, Suchy has walked at a below-average rate of 6.2 percent with a 16.5 percent strikeout rate.

Here are all of the weekend stats for the nation’s top draft-eligible college players. Any player who appeared on the College Top 100 in November who played in a game over the weekend is listed below in alphabetical order, as well as many players who have emerged this spring. A handful of players directly outside of the top 100 were added to the list to make up for top 100 players who did not play over the weekend. The stats were collected by CollegeSplits.com.
