As a two-way player last spring, LHP/1B Joe Koshansky led Virginia in wins (seven) and tied for the club lead in home runs (nine) but wasn't drafted. He didn't pitch last summer but won the home run derby during the Valley League's all-star game festivities. He returned as a two-way player this spring and was outstanding, becoming the first UVa player to win Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year honors in baseball. He went 7-2, 2.78 on the mound and hit 15 home runs with a .613 slugging percentage. Most scouts say his professional future is as a hitter. At 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, Koshansky is a physical specimen with above-average raw power. He is a lefthanded hitter who likes to pull the ball. He has a long swing but has shown the ability to make adjustments.
