College Draft Prospects Stat Roundup: Week 10 (VIDEO)

• Florida State righthander Luke Weaver twirled a complete-game three-hitter against Wake Forest, surrendering one run while striking out seven. The lean, athletic Weaver sat 89-92 with his fastball with natural tail from a three-quarters arm slot. Weaver, young for the class, has the potential for above-average control and has walked 1.9 per-nine this season with a 3.9 strikeout-walk ratio. The quick-armed Weaver has been proficient in shutting down the opponents’ running games, allowing only three stolen base attempts in 70 innings.

• Teams picking in the top five had high-level decision-makers in attendance for East Carolina righthander Jeff Hoffman’s start on Thursday, when he turned in arguably the best start of his career. He showed premium stuff and was up to 97 mph with his fastball to go with strong command, striking out a career-high 16 of the 29 hitters he faced against a lone walk and bumping his strikeouts per-nine rate to 9.6. Hoffman tossed a three-hit shutout in a 1-0 victory.

• After another superlative outing in which he struck out 12 without surrendering a walk in seven innings against Dallas Baptist, Evansville lefthander Kyle Freeland has pushed his strikeout-walk ratio to 21.8 this season while striking out 12.2 per-nine.

• North Carolina State righthander Logan Jernigan continues to struggle in the rotation after surrendering three walks and four runs while getting only five outs against Boston College. Although Jernigan has a good pitcher’s body, athleticism and the makings of a solid fastball-curveball combo, his strike-throwing ability has not held up multiple times through the batting order. He has walked 5.4 per-nine this season and has averaged only 4.2 innings per start. Jernigan, who is old for the class, can throw slightly across his body and his arm action inverts in the back.

• Houston righthander Aaron Garza continued to pound the strike zone as much as any draft prospect, not allowing a walk in 6 2/3 innings against South Florida. Garza has walked .50 per-nine in 72 innings this season, the fifth-lowest rate of any Division I pitcher and lowest of any junior. Garza has been a staple in the Houston rotation since his freshman year and his walk rate has dwindled each season, walking 3.2 per-nine as a freshman and 2.4 as a sophomore. His control remains ahead of his pure stuff, with a high-80s fastball that touches 90 with a loose, easy arm action that generates downhill plane. Garza, who is old for the class, has a four-pitch mix and his slider shows average potential. The 6-foot-4, 200-pound Garza has an athletic body with a high waist and long limbs that will likely accommodate additional strength gains.

• Nevada corner infielder Austin Byler took advantage of his friendly hitting environment at home (112 Park Factor) against Fresno State. The lefthanded hitter slugged a pair of home runs off Fresno State righthander Jordan Brink, one opposite field shot and one to center field, giving him eight home runs on the season. He is hitting .326/.416/.631 with a 10.2 percent walk rate, but has shown some swing-and-miss tendencies with an 18.0 percent strikeout rate.

• Potential first-rounder Derek Fisher, a Virginia outfielder, returned to game action for the first time since breaking his hamate bone against Duke six weeks ago. Virginia’s next series will likely be well-attended by the scouting community when the prospect-laden Cavaliers’ lineup faces Weaver in Tallahassee on Friday.

• North Carolina State shortstop Trea Turner hit a pair of home runs on Saturday, giving him six on the season for a total of 13 extra-base hits. He has a .299/.387/.476 line with more walks (22) than strikeouts (18).

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.
