I think that Meola or Wulfert will get the opps at third base this fall and that Nolan will be a DH and potentially the Sunday starter. That could change if neither of the 3B guys can get it done at the hot corner or if we do not have corner outfielders performing.
Benge has been playing left field on defense only (not hitting) and I think that is where he will be in the spring. I do not think that he will pitch until next season.

If Nolan is in the weekend starting rotation, and does at least pretty well (we all know his upside on the mound), that brings a totally different element to the entire pitching staff.

I'm really not concerned at all about this lineup, or the defense. How good we are and how far we go next spring is as far as the pitching staff will take us. What I mean is, I love our chances of having a great season, as long as the pitching doesn't completely go in the crapper come tournament time.

It's probably been mentioned on this thread but I didn't notice the addition of Ben Abram to the roster. I'm not sure how I missed it. He played at ou last year on their CWS finals run. The transfer portal is really messing with me. :blink:

Any chance we see McLean some in RF? He's played there in the past, and it would give him the opportunity to be in the lineup every day, plus close on the mound. Losing both Trenkle and Thompson, Erhard is the only true returner we have in the outfield. Who amongst the newcomers will get some run out there?

It's possible McLean might play some RF, but we have plenty of options for the OF, just depends on who steps up the most and wins the jobs.


Ehrhard has CF on lockdown, I would imagine
Wulfert
Sylvester
Schubart
Crull
Benge has played a little LF apparently
Turley
Riggio could, but he's so good with Brown up the middle, I wouldn't mess with that
Holt

And, it wouldn't shock me if we tinker with Meola and Meza being out in the OF a little too. Both are great athletes who could probably handle it.

Still surprised Brennan Phillips made it to campus, but I'm glad as hell he did

Phillips could very well end up in our weekend rotation right away.

Also, I didn't expect Schubart to be as polished as his swing looks to me. Looks much more compact than I was expecting. Might put him into a position to contribute right away.

OSU leads 4-1 over Rangers prospects, never heard what inning

Tyler Wolfod (sp) hit a grand slam in the first.

Root on the mound for OSU

I was just scanning through the radio and came upon Rex and the Chief! Pleasant surprise

But Mike Gundy show is going to cut them off.
