Ryan Rolison – LHP – Ole Miss

5.0 IP, 1 hit and 0 earned. 12 K/2 BB.

Steven Gingery – LHP – Texas Tech

Terrible news for Steven Gingery, lefty arm out of Texas Tech, who was considered to be one the better arms in this draft class.

HIGH SCHOOL NEWS:

Ethan Hankins

The top high school prospect and Vanderbilt commit has had an unfortunate start to his senior season.  Hopefully this is a minor setback and the young man can continue his dominant ways in short order.  Regardless, red flags of any kind this close to the draft could easily drop a top 3 player to 18 overall.  Definitely a situation to keep an eye on.
