2010 Draft-Eligible Pitching: Groundout Percentage

A few side projects that have been holding up things on the site should be wrapped up over the weekend, so expect a return to site normalcy before too long.

As for today’s post, well, it’s exactly what the title says. I’ve been keeping track of as many of the big 2010 names as I can, so if there is anybody you’re curious about, let me know and I’ll check to see if I have the data. I also have some of the biggest names of 2011 and 2012 tracked, so, again, if there is anybody you want to know about, let me know. Some of the names and numbers that caught my eye so far:

North Carolina RHP Matt Harvey – 82%

Florida Gulf Coast LHP Chris Sale – 71%

Texas Tech RHP Chad Bettis – 91%

Texas RHP Brandon Workman – 62%

Mississippi LHP Drew Pomeranz – 61%

Georgia RHP Justin Grimm – 57%

LSU RHP Anthony Ranaudo – 38% (note: all of these are small samples, but Ranaudo’s is especially small — one start — due to his injury)

Ohio State RHP Alex Wimmers – 53%

Georgia Tech RHP Deck McGuire – 43%

South Carolina RHP Sam Dyson – 59%

San Diego RHP Kyle Blair – 36%

San Diego LHP Sammy Solis – 52%

Cal RHP Dixon Anderson – 71%

Virginia Tech RHP Jesse Hahn – 75%

    I saw that Cole Cook threw a complete game win over Eastern Carolina. How good is he?

    • Rob Ozga says:

      I like Cole Cook quite a bit, actually. Here are my notes on him:

      SO RHP Cole Cook (2010): sitting FB 90-93, peak 94 with above-average late life; plus 83-84 CU with significant drop; hard 77-78 SL that could be plus pitch in time; low-70s CB that scouts are divided on; command needs work, especially with breaking balls; biggest current red flag is consistent loss of velocity as game drags on; pro body; 2-4 round talent; 6-6, 215

    Minnesota’s Seth Rosin this past Friday vs hot-hitting Harvard: 7.1 / 4 hits / 1 run / 0 BB / 12 Ks

    21.1 IP this season: 24 Ks and 0 BBs

    Whatcha got on Logan Darnell @ KY?

    • Rob Ozga says:

      Darnell is at 64% (37 GO/21 AO) through 4 starts. Love Darnell, but I’m a tad irrationally positive about the entire Kentucky pitching staff’s pro prospects.
