Default 2018 - Weekend Rotation

Anyone have any clue (or guesses) as to this seasons weekend rotation? Midweek starter? Closer?

Outside of Hill being the Friday starter, it seems everything else is pretty much wide open.

It's all still wide open until we finish Spring practice, and I would imagine we'll use the first few weekends to still work out a true rotation. Not uncommon when you lose 2 of your previous weekend guys.

It's definitely wide open with only one proven /experienced weekend starter.

I'm surprised that no one has speculated on a potential weekend starting rotation could be since someone should have separated themselves at least a little during the Fall Scrimmages.

Default Re: 2018 - Weekend Rotation

If I had to take a stab right now:
Fri-Hill
Sat.-Morris
Sun-?

Would love to see a lefty starter in weekend...limited options. won't be surprised if it is Gilreath. Logan Chapman or Shane Roberts I think are also options.....

Wonder if we will see a JUCO guy like Demurias start in one of the spots.

I'm sort of hoping Gilreath can come in and earn a starting spot tbh.

Hill and Morris are who I would pretty much assume to be in the rotation.

Expecting Chapman or Mlodzinski to compete for a sunday spot.

Plus we have no idea how Meade's going to want to tailor the rotation when he sees the arms in the spring. So he's going to see our arms with fresh eyes over the next few months.

I'm glad to have a fresh face as pitching coach it seems like Meyers was not able to develop quality relievers after Matt Price left. Do y'all think we will struggle with a lot of new pitchers?

I should've said Braden Webb but we didn't have a real solid bullpen just 1 or 2 guys like Widener and Webb can't even remember who pitched last season cause I was so frustrated with the team.

Default Re: 2018 - Weekend Rotation

With so many new faces, from the head coach to the pitching coach to most of the pitching staff, I think there are so many unknowns that expectations for this season will be wide ranging.

Personally, I just hope we make the NCAA and show signs of being well-coached. A good season with a lot of young guns in year one, would make expectations for year two extremely high.

Per the Post and Courier's David Cloninger on twitter, Coach Kingston stated today that the starters will be Hill, Morris, and "probably one of the Chapmans" - Logan or Ridge.

The closer looks to be Eddy Demurias....

As I have said in previous posts, Hill is the only proven returning quality pitcher. As the above stats point out we are in serious trouble with our pitching unless we have great improvement from our returning players or some very good newcomers. Some question why we are not ranked in most of the polls. No mystery at all. Why should we be ranked with our pitching being such a huge question mark?

I just hope fans don't start jumping on our new staff if our pitching does not work out. Please give Mark and his staff time to coach and recruit. I think we will be a much better hitting and scoring team but pitching is the key.

Just as an FYI....

Ridge Chapman is a JUCO from Spartanburg Methodist and Greenville's Wade Hampton HIgh School. He was only 5-5 last year after going 7-3 as a Freshman, but he had an ERA under 3.00 (2.84) and averaged about 1 1/2 strikeout per inning in JUCO. He topped out at 88 MPH with his fastball in High School but I would suspect that he has gotten faster since then.

Logan Chapman was the POTY for South Carolina last year. Played at Easley and had a 6-0 record and an ERA of 0.66, 93 strikeouts in 51 innings.

Both players were drafted last year, one in the 36th and one in the 39th round.

This is why I have not worried as much as some about our pitching. When you know that you need help, you can usually find it, even if you have to go JUCO. Both Chapmans look like the real deal - Ridge is ahead since he is a JUCO but Logan has a ton of upside potential. I would suspect Logan will start out as a mid-week guy but could move to the weekend when he gets some experience.
