Pre-Fall Info: Right handed pitchers

Trevor Fitts, Sr. 6-2 205
He is not flashy but he gets it done. Right now he is a week end starter. He is also a leader.
Will Cox, Sr. 6-4 200
He was injured last year so he might be a RS Jr. Anyway, he is working his arm back into shape. He may not pitch in a game until April. He should give us experienced relief help.
Preston Brown, Jr.RS 6-0 195
If he would have been healthy the whole 2014, the season may have turned out different. He is healthy now and should be a weekend starter.
Ben Hudspeth, Jr.RS 6-0 180
Was redshirted last year. Fall ball will determine where he is.
Myles Gentry, Jr. 6-0 180
A side arm delivery guy. Has gotten some big outs the last two years. A mainstay in the bullpen.
Cole Barlow, Jr.Tr. 6-2 180
A transfer who throws side arm. Fall ball will determine if he can help in 2015.
Paul Young, So.RS 6-2 205
Paul is finally healthy. Thank goodness. He has great potential. Butch will bring him along slow so by May 1st you should see the real Paul Young. He throws in lower to mid 90's fastball. I see him as a bullpen guy then in 2016, a full fledged starter.
Austin Sexton, So. 6-3 190
He showed flashes his freshman year. Now he is in full competition for a starting role. Another rising star on the staff. Fall ball will determine.
Dakota Hudson, So. 6-5 210
John Cohen said it after last season. He expects Dakota to compete for the Friday night starting pitcher role. He is a future 1st rounder.
Zac Houston, So. 6-6 220
I think Zac will be one of the closers. I think we will go with 2 or 3 to fill that role. Hard to replace Jonathan Holder.
Logan Elliot, So.Tr. 6-1 180
Another side armer. He did really good in JC throwing side arm. I do expect him to contribute in 2015. Fall ball will determine.
Jacob Billingsley, Fr.RS 6-1 185
Jacob had a really good summer. He should be one of the closers or a set up guy. Looking forward to seeing him pitch.
Levi Mintz, Fr.RS 6-4 190
Fall ball will be big for Levi. He needs to show what he can do.
Cole Gordon, Fr. 6-6 220
A multiple player. He can really hit the ball. He is a closer type. He had surgery two years ago but before then he was around 90 with his fastball. He has a ton of potential. He is a Mitch Moreland type, 1B/OF/RHP player.
Aaron Dominguez, Fr. 6-0 190
He is a very determined and scrappy pitcher. He will compete for PT in the bullpen.
Jesse McCord, Fr. 6-1 195
His brother played at Auburn. One of the top pitchers in the southeast coming out of HS. He will definitely get his share of innings in 2015. Most likely all bullpen duty but a future weekend starter.

RECAP: This list is extensive. Seems everyone is healthy although a couple may not be full speed. Lots of work to do in the fall to determine what role they will have.
