    Louisiana State's problems this season started on the mound, where the team wound up with an all-freshman rotation. That was due in part to a rough season by junior righty Tyler Jones, who had the best arm among LSU's veterans. He pushes his fastball up to 95-96 mph out of the bullpen, and he maintains a plus fastball when he starts. Command of both his heater and his pedestrian secondary stuff is the issue.
