Weekly College Prospect Update: 4/4/14 - 4/6/14

A.J. Reed continues to clobber baseballs. Meanwhile, Carlos Rodon gets through his first game without walking anyone, but questions remain as Clemson hitters touch him up for eleven hits, six runs, and a lot of fly balls.

USA TODAY Sports

Some starters didn't put in the number of innings that Louisville closer Nick Burdi put in this weekend - the righty threw five innings total, including three innings on Sunday. He faced eighteen batters total and struck out nine of them, with his fastball sitting 97-100, with a filthy slider in the high eighties/low nineties.

Carlos Rodon's appearance this weekend marked the first time all season that he hasn't walked a single batter. The lefty went eight full innings against Clemson, striking out just five of the thirty-six batters he faced, while getting 11 outs in the air and seven on the ground. He also gave up 11 hits and six runs (three earned) while picking up the loss to fall to 2-5 on the season.

Remember when A.J. Reed hit five home runs in one weekend for Kentucky? He's done it again -- well, not exactly. But he did hit a home run in each of Kentucky's three games this weekend against Florida. He leads the SEC with twelve dingers this season. Reed also leads the Wildcats in innings pitched (56), with a 1.93 ERA and a .221 BAA over eight appearances, all starts.
