2015 Preview: Outfielders

Jake Vickerson, Senior: Will be in the OF rotation. Bats left and has a great arm. Maybe can play center in 2015?
Jacob Robson, Sophomore RS: Injured his elbow early in the 2014 season. Should redshirt. Should be in the OF rotation, depending on left/right match ups. Needs to have a break out 2015.
Cody Brown, Sophomore RS: Started most of the 2014 campaign in left or right field. Will be in the OF rotation in 2015.
Joey Swinarski, Freshman RS: Enrolled a year early last year. So even though he will be 18, he is a redshirt freshman. Brings great hitting ability to the OF. I do expect him to play a lot, either in corner OF or DH.
Brent Rooker, Freshman RS: Rooker is a good hitter. But where does he play? Is listed as a 1B/OF. Looking forward to the fall to see what he can do after being redshirted.

2014 Losses: C.T. Bradford, Demarcus Henderson, Derrick Armstrong


Michael Smith, Junior JC Transfer: Speedy OF. Hit .331 and stole 29 bases in 2014.
Taylor Stafford, Freshman: Talented youngster from Columbus. Can also pitch. Bats and throws left.
Cole Gordon, Freshman: Can play the corner OF. He is a big guy at 6-6, 240. Can pitch also. I think he will be used as a pinch hitter/DH his first year. Bats left.

* I do expect at least one more signee before the fall. Probably a JC transfer. (AND I was right)
**OF rotation meaning 5 players who can start/pinch hit, etc depending on match up with right/left handed pitcher.
