Ranaudo started game 1 of today's double header

retired all 6 batters he faced, 1 K

recorded the game since I wasn't home for the beginning.
I'll go back and watch his 2 innings after the 2nd game is over.

Just confirmed that MTSU's Bryce Brentz will miss 2-3 weeks with a hairline fracture in his ankle. More details coming soon on College Blog.

Sick. I haven't seen any worthwhile college baseball yet this year.

Really excited to see Landry, Gibbs, Ranaudo, Grimm, and McRee.

Ranaudo still on some sort of pitch count I imagine?

I know the injury sets him back a little but what do you think about this guy? From what I have read he is a major power hitting corner OF projected prospect. I would like to hear your thoughts on him. Maybe a good KW buying chip since we lost a little faith in Mitchell?

Everyone is crazy about the videogame like numbers he put up last year, but the fact that he is playing against rather mediocre competition needs to be taken into consideration. From what I've read there are some questions about his makeup and his coachability.

I think he's more of a middle to late first round pick, and he needs to put up similar numbers to last years line of .465/.535/.930 for him to go early first round. It's entirely possible he's drafted earlier though, especially since this year's crop of college hitters is really weak. A team that buys into his bat and is lacking some OF depth could probably nab him for slot early on allowing them to spend more on later round picks. (See Pirates/Orioles of last year)

I do like the guy, partly due to his gaudy numbers and the oft mentioned Nick Markakis comp. I really would be surprised if we draft someone other than a pitcher with our 1st round pick though.

Here is a somewhat dated scouting report, and some video clips.

Also one here.

Thanks for the info! I know your usually the resident WSI guru on the draft and prospects. I actually selected this guy in the WSI Dynasty Minor League draft a few weeks ago and I wanted to hear some other opinions.

Nice to hear Jared Mitchell in the booth of the LSU/Georgia game. Wish I had noticed earlier.

Edit: Mentions that he might be playing in a fall league if recovery goes as planned.

Texas/Oklahoma is on ESPNU at 2:00 CST today.

Brandon Workman is starting for Texas, and is likely a mid first rounder in the upcoming draft. A definite possibility for the White Sox at the 13th pick.

Other legitimate prospects include Cameron Rupp, Kevin Keyes, Cole Green, and Chance Ruffin. All Texas players. I doubt any of them sniff the first round, but they likely fall in a top 300.

A testy game so far. Back to back homers from Texas, (one by Keyes), now Oklahoma has thrown behind a batter and plunked someone.
