Southern Mississippi had a disappointing season, but Pierce surely wasn't the reason. He's earned nearly one-third of the team's wins as its undisputed ace, going 9-2, 2.59 to earn all-Conference USA honors. The wispy 6-foot-4, 160-pounder lacks projection but has a good feel for his fastball. He'll sink it, cut it or run it away from hitters with average 88-92 mph velocity. He throws a slider and changeup and trusts his slurvy slider more, but he throws both pitches down in the strike zone. He has allowed just two home runs in each of his two seasons.
