It's officially that time where summer collegiate teams lose players and rosters occasionally have space where none existed. In the past 2 weeks, we've lost 2 to injury, one to flunking out of school, and one snatched away (okay, we actually agreed to release him) to a full contract at the Cape, which came as no surprise as the player was leading the SEC in batting average around .430, as a true freshman-watch for the name in the future, Jake Mangum, Mississippi State. A super kid with an unreal batting eye. We also lost a freshman pitcher that will undoubtedly be a freshman All American...but he's already around 80 innings so he'll be wisely shut down for the summer.
If you didn't get into your destination league, early to late May is when openings occur, especially pitchers.
Some teams will be looking for temps due to players held up by Regionals, Super-Regionals, and the College World Series. There are never guarantees and "temporary" usually means "temporary". We project 8-10 players coming late but we don't do temps. Nevertheless, many teams do and players do occasionally show enough to stay.
Our spots are filled-don't ask.
p.s. I was also tired of the same topic appearing here since March.
