STARKVILLE — Mississippi State University had a pair of players on its roster and two signees drafted Wednesday on the final day of the Major League Baseball first-year player draft.
STARKVILLE — If the Bulldogs head into next season with rising seniors Devin Jones and Nick Routt, their pitching staff will be the most experienced its been under coach John Cohen.
ATLANTA — Jarrod Parks’ admitted hitting slump down the stretch of the season could have had a stronger impact on Mississippi State’s offense had it not been for fellow senior Nick Vickerson’s current hot streak.
Vickerson began the season as MSU’s leadoff man, and while he managed to score 20 runs through the first 14 games his batting average was just .250.
STARKVILLE — Mississippi State pitcher Devin Jones has a world of potential.
He just has to realize it.
That’s the message MSU coach John Cohen has had for Jones dating back to last season when the Eupora native struggled to find the strike zone against Southeastern Conference competition.
A year older, Mississippi State’s baseball team enters conference play with more tools and experience than it did last season.
