Miami Righthander Victor Mederos To Transfer To Oklahoma State
Righthander Victor Mederos is transferring from Miami to Oklahoma State, he announced Monday on Instagram.
Mederos was an Under Armor All-American in high school and the No. 59 ranked prospect in the 2020 draft but upheld his commitment to play for the hometown Hurricanes. He was a part of their top-ranked recruiting class, the program’s first ever No. 1 class.
Mederos opened the season in Miami’s rotation and went 1-3, 6.08 in eight starts over the first two months of the season. After lasting just two innings in a loss at Pittsburgh – in a series Miami was swept – Mederos was moved to the bullpen as a part of a shakeup of the pitching staff. He made over the remainder of the season four relief appearances, all in mid-week games, totaling seven innings.
Following the season, Mederos entered the transfer portal, enabling him to transfer, and went to the Cape Cod League to play for Chatham. He’s made three appearances for the Anglers and after a tough first outing has thrown five straight scoreless innings.
Mederos now will head to Oklahoma State, where his strong frame and powerful fastball-slider combination should earn him a significant role on the Cowboys’ pitching staff.
Oklahoma State returns All-American Justin Campbell (7-2, 2.57) to the rotation and likely will also return lefthander Parker Scott (8-1, 2.54). But the Cowboys have this summer been looking to upgrade their pitching in the transfer portal, also adding lefthander Dillon Marsh and righthander Jimmy Ramsey from Kentucky.
Mederos will turn 21 years old next June and therefore be eligible for the 2022 draft.
