College Draft Prospects Stat Roundup: Week 4


• Texas Christian lefthander Brandon Finnegan continues to rack up strikeouts at a high rate this season after striking out nearly 40 percent (12 of 31) of the Michigan State Spartans he faced Friday. On the season, the 5-foot-11, 184-pound Finnegan has struck out 39 percent of all hitters (114) with a strikeout-walk ratio of 7.5 and he ran his fastball up to 96 mph in multiple outings.

• Hartford lefthander Sean Newcomb continued his strong start to the season against East Tennessee State. Newcomb allowed only two hits in seven innings, both of which could have been ruled as errors. The Bucs rarely created hard contact against Newcomb, who generated 13 swinging strikes, eight strikeouts and 11 of his 15 balls in play allowed were groundballs.

The 6-foot-5, 240-pound Newcomb produces some of the easiest velocity found in the amateur ranks in recent years as his fastball ranged from 90-95 mph and sat 92-94 at times.

“You almost had to check the gun again to after some of those fastballs where it looked like he just lobbed it in there, but then you check and you are like ‘Wow, that was 94.’ It comes out as easy as you will ever see 95 come out,” an American League scouting executive said.

When on top of the ball, Newcomb produced above-average fastball life with arm-side run and sink when down in the zone and late glove-side run when working in the upper half of the zone. On a night when his fastball generated 11 whiffs, Newcomb worked heavily off his heater, throwing it 77 percent of the time. Newcomb was primarily fastball-curveball against a Bucs’ lineup that featured only two lefthanded hitters. His 77-80 mph curveball was inconsistent but flashed average potential. He threw only five mid-80s changeups on the night but the offering showed the potential to be at least an average pitch, flashing above-average. Newcomb did not throw his fourth offering, a mid-80s cutter/slider, in game action Friday.

63 percent of his pitches went for strikes and he walked three hitters. The lefthander also made an athletic defensive play when he snared a chopper up the first-base line with his bare hand to get the runner to first.

“I think if he has a lot of starts like he did Friday night he is going to go pretty good,” the executive said.

• National college writer Aaron Fitt recently profiled Florida International catcher Aramis Garcia, who sustained his loud offensive start to the season, hitting three home runs and a double over the weekend against Charlotte, which has an offense-oriented ballpark. The athletic 6-foot-2, 200-pound Garcia is hitting .424/.521/.763 in 59 at-bats this season with five home runs and 11 walks against four strikeouts.

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. 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, save for total batters faced, were collected by CollegeSplits.com. Follow CollegeSplits on Twitter @collegesplits.
