Weekly Draft Prospect Update

Melina Vastola-US PRESSWIRE

Stanford's Mark Appel continues to shine by adding a new career-high strikeout mark, and Indiana State's Sean Manaea returns to the mound for the first time since February 22.

There was a lot of noise being made by some of the top pitching prospects in college baseball this weekend, with Stanford's Mark Appel setting a new career-high strikeout mark, Indiana State's Sean Manaea returning to the mound for the first time since February 22, Vanderbilt's Kevin Ziomek struck out thirteen Oregon Ducks, and Minnesota's Tom Windle throwing the first complete game no-hitter in school history.

Carrying the torch for the hitters this week was New Mexico's 3B/1B D.J. Peterson, who feasted on LaSalle's and UC Riverside's pitching in six games to the tune of 11-for-15 with two doubles, a triple, and four home runs, scoring 9 runs, knocking in 6 RBI, and stealing a base.
