Anthony Rendon and the Rice Owls are off this weekend, so it’s only Gerrit Cole in action. Here are the weekend links:
-Perfect Game has a scouting report on Cole.
-Beyond the Box Score recaps the debate between Rendon and Cole for the number one overall pick.
-Interesting comment via Kendall Rogers of Perfect Game, regarding Cole:
Interesting comment from a coach. Quote “Our guys are much more scared of facing Trevor Bauer than Gerrit Cole”.
-Cole has had two rough starts recently. Jason Churchill of ESPN mentions a temporary mechanical flaw that has caused his stuff to be flat, and adds that his change-up hasn’t been as dominant lately. He’s still considered a potential ace.
-I mentioned this earlier in the week, but Baseball America did a mock draft, and all three writers doing the draft said they would take Rendon first overall.
The schedule for Rendon and Cole this weekend:
9:00 PM EST – UCLA (Cole) vs Oregon State
