Recruits
« on: May 29, 2012, 09:50:57 am »
Here is a website I found that seems to do a decent job keeping up college baseball commitments.

http://www.perfectgame.org/College/CollegeCommitments.aspx?college=Stony%20Brook&grad=2012

One kid I'd like to know who doesn't have a lot of hype over there is Jack Parenty. He was the CHSAA player of the year in 2011, the same conference standout freshman Steven Goldstein is from.

Two of our signees were drafted this week. Third baseman John Caputo was drafted in the 12 round by Oakland. LHP Daniel Zamora was drafted in the 27th round by Toronto.

Anyone know the details of the new collective bargaining agreement and how it might affect these two potentially signing with their MLB teams?

"A couple months ago, I had no clue I was going to get drafted," said Zamora, who got news of his being selected via a surprise call from Amat coach Andy Nieto, which Zamora thought was a joke at first.

"I guess my hard work in the weight room, on the field and the hard work the coaches put in toward me paid off. I don't have an answer for which way I'm leaning (college or pro). Some people have had a year to prepare for this, I've had like a month."

As far as I can tell only recruit was drafted, Ryley Maceachern with 1111 pick. Hopefully he still comes to SBU

We have a few more than that http://www.perfectgame.org/College/CollegeCommitments.aspx?college=Stony%20Brook

1. Kyle Devin (Lynn MA, Catcher) - #3 ranked player in Mass, High HM Preseason All American
looks like he was scouted by the Yankees for draft, went undrafted.
http://riveraveblues.com/2013/04/2013-draft-kyle-devin-85120/
Article comments on throwing strength + batting power, but still raw player. Maybe he can develop into the next Cantwell?

2. Josh Palacios (Brooklyn NY, Outfielder) - top Brooklyn player, nephew of former major leaguer Rey Palacios. Another MLB draft prospect, undrafted though. High HM Preseason All American
http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/high-school/palacios-swing-seawolves-article-1.1224653
More recent article confirms. The above article loves this kid, and his numbers this season (>.600 BA, amongst others), have my mouth watering

3.  Joe Guercio (Kings Park NY, RHP) - All-County, 2012 League V Pitcher of Year. Plays football too.
http://kingspark.patch.com/groups/schools/p/kings-park-baseball-standout-signs-letter-of-intent-wcc4f0c129b

4. Ryley MacEachern (Salisbury MA, RHP) - 37th Round Pick by the Phillies, High HM All American. No evidence that he's signing, but may be very early to tell. He could be very good, and go MUCH earlier if he goes to college and gets his fastball speed up. Hopefully he's thinking similar. http://www.perfectgame.org/players/playerprofile.aspx?ID=277104

5. Casey Baker (Ronkonkoma NY, SS) - Not a lot of info on him. Glad to see another local boy at SB though. We lost one from Ward Melville to U Conn, which was disappointing.

6. Jeremy Giles (Claremont CA, 2B/SS) - Looks like he's a pure athleticism guy, which bodes very well for his development. http://www.perfectgame.org/players/playerprofile.aspx?ID=292476
Looks like he was being watched/recruited by a bunch of the better CA baseball schools

7. Fernando Guerrero (Elizabeth NJ, RHP) - I really like this guy. Looks like he's a fighter that got a lot of high major attention, but was underrecruited because of size. ::cough JANKOWSKI cough:: http://www.perfectgame.org/players/playerprofile.aspx?ID=239705
Can't wait to see what this kid can do

8. Toby Handly (Whitby, Ontario - Outfield) - Seems like he was poached very early, Pannucci liked him. I trust him, let's see what we got http://www.pointstreaksites.com/view/terriersbaseball/news-room/news_46059

9. Cameron Stone (West Haven CT, 2B) - Top 25 players in CT, looks like he also pitches extremely well.
http://www.ctpostchronicle.com/articles/2013/05/01/sports/doc515db3449eb77702343459.txt?viewmode=default

10. Conor Doyle (Maspeth NY, RHP) - NY Post named him All-Queens Player of the Year in 2012 after a fantastic season. However, looks like he tore his ACL this season http://www.timesledger.com/stories/2013/19/dozoadamsbase_all_2013_05_10_q.html
Always worries me about instability post-recon, but maybe he can return to form and we'll have the makings of a very, very good rotation over the next few seasons.

Sorry I meant that MacEachern was the sbu recruit to get drafted. not that he was the only recruit. Totally agree about Geurero. He looks like a steal.

Maceachem has not signed with the Phillies and most picks of their have signed.  The signing period ends July 12.

Hopefully he stays with SBU for a few years. he can only improve in D-1  baseball.

2 players coming from Cypress JC in California. Look them up on their site. I think maybe 13-15 players will come in for next year if I had to guess.

Anyone know what the story with Fernando Guerrero is? He's now listed as a 2014 recruit at perfectgame.com
