Including 4 transferring pitchers (3 JUCOs) and 3 JUCO position players. Really nice writeups on each newbie...

Cienfuentes is primarly a pitcher, I believe. LaRue has potential, but the real stud catcher (if we can get him on campus and not turning pro) arrives in 2020.

BTW, Bragga commented that we have no returning Senior pitchers, but isn't Roel Garcia technically a Senior, at least until he gets granted a red shirt season?

15 seems like a lot to this casual observer. Is it?

Yes, it is, but that's because we lost a ton to graduation and the draft. If you recall we had more players graduate this year than any year in recent memory. We also had far more seniors on last year's squad than in years past.

Really nice write ups on all the incoming players. I'm not sure who is running the athletics media/social media dept but they have been doing a bang up job this last athletic season. I don't think there were any write ups or announcements for Graham's last class (2018's). We had to search Perfect Game and other outlets for any information at all on that class. Really excited about next season.

As a survivor of the Liberty Bowl, I am very sensitive to the sound of cowbell.

Anyone know who the 2 Rice players that entered the NCAA transfer portal? Just saw a CUSA list on D1baseball (Kendall Rogers) that showed Rice with 2. Just curious and may explain the larger 2019 recruiting class.

Parthasarathy is probably one, as he going to grad school at Stanford, and will try to make the Cardinal roster as a grad transfer.

Thanks Walt. Makes sense. I was concerned maybe a couple of the redshirt guys may be leaving based on some of the JC guys coming in.

No, Tyner was on the football transfer portal, not the baseball one.
