Looks like we have our starting rotation "set":
Friday: Povich
Saturday: Hroch (New Mexico State grad transfer)
Sunday: Schanaman

So no Gomes or Perry in the weekend rotation for now. They're talking about Jake Bunz and Koty Frank as the #4 guy.

Bullpen:
Gomes
Schwellenbach
Wynne (Texas A&M transfer)
Schreiber
Tillotson (amazing this guy is still just a junior, but injuries and COVID)
Bradford
Bragg

Sounds like Chick continues to add a lot of power at the plate. Fun seeing 5'9 guys do that.

Freshman infielders Brice Matthews and Max Anderson (no shocker there) had good falls at the plate.

Lots of options at 1B: Boynton, Banjoff, JC transfer Griffin Everitt. No mention of Gomes.

Wonder if they’ll get Gomes back in a closer role. Honestly that’s probably where he excelled best. At minimum he’d be a great setup guy. Was never starting material honestly.

I think we have a chance to be pretty good if that rotation lives up to the hype. The defense and bats are exciting for sure. I imagine a few guys will move on after the fall however. Nobody in line to get playing time by any means.

Perry had TJ, he's out for the 2021 season. Gomes had some cleanup done which held him out of the fall, but he's expected to be full strength once practice starts back up in January. Colby is a PO, no 2-way option, which is a good thing, assuming he buys in...

That's a heck of a weekend rotation with an outstanding bullpen. It's been awhile since we've had this number of quality arms as we currently have. Coach Christy has filled that group up quickly.

I was a bit surprised that Bragg wasn't listed as challenging for a starting pitching job in the weekday group. To me that's a positive sign that we have depth. I think I like the potential of our bullpen more than the starters. Wynne's stuff was nasty in that streaming scrimmage.

Good to hear Hagge is working on the small ball aspect and did well in fall ball. Finding playing time for everyone is going to be a challenge.
