I think he's going to be the number 2 or 3 pick this summer (barring significant injury), I just hope to see him pitch at his best sometime this year, because the start I saw was underwhelming which quite obviously was an outlier. Unfortunately it's not easy to catch college baseball, especially in my neck of the woods.
if it was a rough outing, it was probably LSU's opener at the College World Series last year. He definitely struggled with that one.
Don't really have an answer as to why, but i personally don't think it was fatigue.
You should be able to watch him on April 23rd at 7 (central time) on ESPNU.
LSU vs Ole Miss.
should be Ranaudo vs Pomeranz since both guys are the Friday starter for their teams.
