Only a few days away from first official hacks of the new year. I love college baseball, wish I had gotten into it far sooner, and it has been a great distraction from an offseason of general negativity throughout the game at the MLB level. Any teams, players, regions that jump out to any of you guys this year, from a Mets or basic baseball POV?

I like watching players I'd like the Mets to draft throwing 140 pitches, and then coming in in relief 2 games later.......

I used to worry bout that, and there have certainly been some collateral damage along the way as far as abused arms..... but honestly, the strategy of using kid gloves at the professional level does not seem to be helping with durability either. So for now at least, I side with the level that the focus is on grinding out every win possible.

Watching LSU game from last night, Daniel Cabrera looking like pro-version of Conforto. Stud sophomore.

No idea what his draft stock is like, but KU catcher Jaxx Groshans (older brother of Blue Jays first rounder Jordan) is off to a ridiculous start.

12 for 26 with 6 HR, 14 RBI and 9 BB

Anytime you start with Adley Rutschman you've got a chance at a historic catching class, but Shea Langaliers could also be a top-10 pick. Kyle McCann is essentially replacing Joey Bart at Georgia Tech, and Groshans is crushing the ball too..... very interesting group

Braves prospect Ian Anderson's twin brother Ben, a pitcher for D1 Binghamton, might be an interesting target at the middle/late rounds...

As someone who went to Binghamton for a few semesters, I approve.

Anyone know what will happen with Navy stud pitcher Noah Song? As far as baseball goes, he sure seems like a top talent, but doesn't he have to serve a few years as a requirement of attending the Academy?

He's looking at a 5 year requirement. Not sure if he can get out of it.

Here's a story after the 2018 draft.

I don't have a subscription to BA or D1Baseball, so I apologize in advance if the following list mirrors any list of theirs that highlights players trending up heading into the draft. As far MLB Pipeline's Top 100 draft prospects list is concerned, the following is a bunch of guys who caught my eye this spring who fall outside their top 100.

RHP Ty Adcock, Elon -- Has caught, played some outfield and DH'd, but also closes for the Phoenix and that's where his future lies in pro baseball--on the mound. Kirby and Brnovich get the press, deservedly so, but Adcock is a fine prospect in his own right thanks to a FB that his touched mid 90s.

RHP Nelson Alvarez, South Florida -- Big kid with a big fastball. Closing for the Bulls in his first D1 season after transferring from JUCO. Drafted twice previously (27th Rd. in '16; 23rd Rd. in '18), but will certainly go earlier than that this time around.

1B Bryce Ball, Dallas Baptist -- First D1 season after two years in JUCO. 6'6" lefty has smashed 15 longballs.

LHP Dante Biasi, Penn State -- Northeast players rarely get the recognition they deserve, but Biasi should be able to overcome such bias and get selected early on. FB has been recorded as high as 95 and his changeup is a plus-pitch in the making. A personal favorite I'd really like to see the Mets drat.

OF Will Brennan, Kansas State -- Pro-level understanding of the strike zone. Has popped four home runs this year after going homerless in 2017-18. High 80s off the mound. Low-ceiling, but could make for a "value" pick.

RHP J.C. Keys, Southern Miss -- Senior sign. Diminutive closer with low 90s FB (T94) and sharp breaker.

RHP Chris Lincoln, UC Santa Barbara -- Converted to relieving full-time after starting some games in 2017-18. FB has ticked up after move to closing role. Lean and athletic. Arms and legs fly at the hitter.

2B/UTIL Trevor Ezell, Arkansas -- Senior sign. Has played 1B, 2B, 3B and some OF during college career. Switch-hitter. Utility profile.

LHP Nick Snyder, West Virginia -- 6'7" lefty has been a mid-week starter for WVU. Low 90s FB plays up due to size. Nearly no-hit Marshall a couple weeks ago going 8.2 before an infield single broke it up. He K'd 16 in the effort. If he gained any velocity in short stints there's the making of a power lefty out of the pen.

RHP Matt Waldron, Nebraska -- Senior sign. Control artist has seen a velocity spike into the low 90s late in college career.

RHP Jacob Wallace, UConn -- After lighting up the Cape in 2018, he has continued his dominance this spring by pounding the zone with legit mid-90s fastball. Low 3/4 arm slot with arm side run. Could be a quick mover in pro ball.

RHP Justin Yeager, Southern Illinois -- Another big kid with a mid 90s fastball.

RHP Jarred Zill, Cal Poly -- Senior sign. Missed time in 2017 (underwent TJS after three starts) and 2018 (shoulder), but velocity has held up post-injury as he's been as high as the mid 90s.

Add New Mexico righty Justin Slaten to that list.
