Junior RHP A.J. Shappi became UC Riverside's undisputed ace and went 8-2, 3.54. He's not overpowering with a fastball in the 86-89 mph range that touches 90, but he's sound mechanically and has command of three piches. His slider is his best pitch. Shappi is extremely intelligent and was a Rhodes scholar candidate before his GPA slipped below the minimum standard of 3.60 this year.
