OUTLOOK

We will be very deep on the mound. Maybe the most depth we've had on the mound in my 13 years at SJR. We can run a dozen really good college arms out. Gause definitely has the most pro potential and could be an early pick. Chase Malloy and Kyle Smith will be our offensive leaders. JJ Sousa is back after tearing an ACL in the 10th game of the year and he can really swing it. He was hitting over .420 when he went down. Andre James played a lot for us last year and started of great but faded the last dozen games. We need him to be a consistent producer for us. Beyond those 4 guys, we've got a lot of untested guys. We are going to have to get some offensive production out of some guys that haven't shown me they can do it yet.
