USF ATHLETICS GoUSFBulls.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Web Link: https://bit.ly/2BIQ2A2 USF’s Davila Signs With Detroit Junior pitcher Nick Davila has signed with the Tigers as an undrafted free agent. TAMPA, July 6, 2020 – USF junior pitcher Nick Davila signed with the Detroit Tigers as an undrafted free agent Monday afternoon. Davila (Hialeah, Fla.) became the third Bull to join a professional team this summer. Fellow pitcher Carson Ragsdale was selected by Philadelphia in the fourth round of the 2020 MLB Draft, and Graham Hoffman was signed as an undrafted free agent by Boston. “I want to thank the coaching staff, compliance and all my teammates for a wonderful experience over this past year,” Davila said. “I transferred in from Hillsborough Community College and off the bat I clicked with the guys on the team. I made lifelong friends and relationships that I will cherish forever. It feels surreal to have the chance to play professional baseball because you train every day for this dream. You hope and pray that one day your hard work will pay off. Go Tigers!” Davila made his debut with the Bulls during the 2020 season after playing two seasons at Hillsborough Community College. Even though his junior season was cut short due to COVID-19, Davila had some impressive numbers in 2020. During his first outing with the Bulls, Davila tossed three innings of relief while striking out five batters against Marist to pick up his first win of the season. Davila set his USF career high with six strikeouts against Florida A&M. Davila finished his USF career with 19 strikeouts through 12 innings of work. "Congratulations to Nick,” head coach Billy Mohl said. “His hard work and dedication has paid off, and now he has a chance to go live his childhood dream. I’m proud of him and wish him nothing but success.” USF’s combined total of MLB Draft selections and non-drafted free agent signings since 1973 is now up to 162.
  5. By Brad Meyer | Published 07/06/2020 | USF Baseball Tampa, FL - USF Bulls pitcher Nick Davila (Junior/Hialeah, Fl) became the third player to forego his remaining USF career for a shot at professional baseball. Previously, junior Carson Ragsdale (drafted in 4th round/Phillies) and sophomore Grahman Hoffman (free agent/Boston) departed the Bulls this summer. Davila, a right-hander, signed with the Detroit tigers, becoming the third pitcher lost by the Bulls. He joined the Bulls in 2020 after beginning his collegiate career at Hillsborough Community College. Davila gathered seven appearances in his USF career, including one start. In all, he combined for 12 innings pitched while striking out 19, giving up 11 hits and surrendering four bases on balls. The Bulls 2020 season was ended after 17 games due to Covid-19 concerns. "Congratulations to Nick,” head coach Billy Mohl said. “His hard work and dedication has paid off, and now he has a chance to go live his childhood dream. I’m proud of him and wish him nothing but success.” Brad Meyer is site founder of and writer for TheBullsPen.com. He can be contacted at admin@thebullspen.net.

TAMPA, JUNE 14, 2020 – USF redshirt sophomore pitcher Graham Hoffman signed with the Boston Red Sox as an undrafted free agent Sunday afternoon. Hoffman (Tampa, Fla.) became the second Bull to join a professional team this week. Fellow pitcher Carson Ragsdale was selected by Philadelphia in the fourth round of the 2020 MLB Draft on Thursday night. “It’s honestly a dream come true. I have worked all my life for this moment. Thank you to Coach (Billy) Mohl and the USF family for always supporting me in my college career,” Hoffman said. “They pushed me every day to be a better person and a better player. Go Bulls and go Red Sox.” After missing a bulk of the 2019 season due to Tommy John surgery, Hoffman started off 2020 strong while making five appearances out of the bullpen before the season cut short because of COVID-19. The right-hander picked up his first save of the season against Northwestern after recording one strikeout through one inning of relief. Hoffman finished his USF career with 26 strikeouts through 20.1 innings of work. In 2018, Hoffman was part of a Bulls pitching staff that recorded 581 strikeouts and ranked fifth nationally in strikeouts per nine innings at 10.0. "Congratulations to Graham. He has battled adversity and fought his way back from injuries, and this is the reward he has been waiting for,” Mohl said. “He has been a model student-athlete during his time here and I couldn’t be happier for him. We wish him the best of luck.” USF’s combined total of MLB Draft selections and non-drafted free agent signings since 1973 is now up to 161.

  14. BULLS START GEARING UP FOR 2020 SEASON UNDER THE LIGHTS January 25, 2020 By TOM ZEBOLD USF Senior Writer TAMPA, JAN. 24, 2020 – Head coach Billy Mohl's motivated Bulls got right into game mode during the first team practice of the 2020 season on Friday night. Under the bright lights at USF Baseball Stadium, the new-look coaching staff got a good glimpse of the players' offseason progress during intrasquad action. Two more scrimmages are set to take place over the weekend, as USF goes full speed ahead in preparing for the regular season that begins with a home series against Marist College Feb. 14-16. "Seeing how much development took place over the last six weeks is gonna be a fun thing to watch," Mohl said. "We're trying to get in the swing of things, gets these guys in a game day atmosphere, get them under the lights and simulate a three-game series as best as we can." One huge benefit for the Bulls this weekend, and throughout the preseason, is having lots of options available. Much to Mohl's enjoyment, USF has returned to the field much healthier than it was during the 2019 season, especially in the pitching department. "Given the injuries we had last year, it was tough. We were short-staffed," sophomore catcher Julio Cortez said. "This year, we have new JUCO arms that came in. We have a couple freshmen we're really excited about." Cortez (Weston, Fla.) led the Bulls with a .354 batting average last season and he'll share a bulk of the catching duties with healthy redshirt junior Jake Sullivan (Tampa). Together, the four-man catching unit gets to work with 11 returning pitchers and more talent from a group of 12 newcomers overall. Nine position starters also bring valuable experience back to the Bulls. "I feel confident with this group," said Mohl, who added team chemistry is at an "all-time high" right now entering his third year as USF's head coach. #CarryTheBoat Coach Mohl credits his players for their offseason efforts of building a close-team culture that includes a catchy, new slogan. #CarryTheBoat will be something Bulls fans see often on Twitter this season. Redshirt junior infielder/outfielder Riley Hogan (Orlando) brought the saying to Bulls' attention after finding inspiration from New York Times bestselling author David Goggins, a retired U.S. Navy Seal. "The guys love him, just because he's a self-made man," Mohl said. "When you go through Seal training, it takes the entire team to carry those boats as you're going through the beach sand. It's kind of the phrase that they came up with and it's kind of a team unity deal." Catcher Julio Cortez said the Bulls bring up the #CarryTheBoat slogan often and they'll continue to do so during the grind of the 54-game regular season. "It's something we use to pump us up before practice, before workouts," Cortez said. "Baseball is a very repetitive sport, so you've got to find motivation day-in and day-out. That's kind of our thing this year and that's what we're gonna use." Mitchell Earns Preseason Honors Promising outfielder Dontae Mitchell has already earned some preseason praise. Perfect Game USA has named the St. Petersburg, Fla., product out of Lakewood High School its 2020 Preseason Freshman of the Year for the American Athletic Conference. "He's a really talented player and he's a really hardworking kid," Mohl said. "He has all the tools to be successful." Described as an "elite defensive center fielder" by Mohl, Mitchell has the ability to play all three outfield positions for the Bulls, and his bat keeps getting better. "He didn't play a lot of travel ball, so he's very fresh," Mohl said. "He's like a blank slate and our hitting coaches have done a great job developing him. I'm excited for him." Former USF Standouts Headed to Spring Training 2020 Major League Baseball spring training will feature plenty of Bulls. Former standout USF pitchers Shane McClanahan (Tampa Bay), Phoenix Sanders (Tampa Bay) Jimmy Herget (Texas), Tommy Eveld (Miami) and Austin Adams (Seattle) have been to participate with their respective big league clubs. Kevin Merrill, an All-American shortstop for the Bulls in 2017, also will head to spring training with the Kansas City Royals. Congrats to @teveld on the big league invite with the @Marlins. He also has a little message for our fans. ?? #BayMade pic.twitter.com/KzFKdBokXJ — Billy Mohl (@USF_CoachMohl) January 21, 2020 "It starts in the recruiting process. Our assistant coaches have done a great job recruiting great players," Mohl said. "Our coaches also have done a great job developing them and allowing them to get to the level they're at. "Obviously, they've taken the next step now. They're Bay made and I'm proud of all those guys. They're great alums. They're always back here supporting our guys and I love following their careers."

Click here to follow USF Baseball on Twitter Click here to like USF Baseball on Facebook 'HUNGRY' BULLS BEGIN 2020 SEASON WITH HOME SERIES USF baseball season begins with three-game home series against Marist on Friday night. By TOM ZEBOLD USF Senior Writer TAMPA (Feb. 13, 2020) – Third-year head coach Billy Mohl is feeling good about his new-look Bulls after several months of solid preparation. USF will unveil its impressive mix of young and veteran talent when the program starts the 2020 season with a three-game home series against Marist College. Friday's opener is set for 7 p.m. at USF Baseball Stadium. “The culture of the team is really good. We've got senior leadership, junior leadership," Mohl said. "We've got cohesion on the coaching staff. Everybody is rowing the boat in the same direction right now." Coming off an injury-riddled 2019 campaign, USF has its sights set on getting back to the postseason with a much healthier roster that features 16 returning letter winners and 12 promising newcomers. "I think hungry is an understatement," said junior catcher Jake Sullivan (Tampa). "We're ready to go and there's no better feeling in the world than being prepared. I think this team is as prepared as any team out there." That's definitely a positive for a motivated Bulls squad that will be put to the test right away with five games in five days. Following the series against Marist, USF heads to Tallahassee to take on Florida A&M (Monday, 4 p.m.) and No. 12 Florida State (Tuesday, 6:30 p.m.). "We're gonna be able to see a lot of options out of the bullpen," Mohl said. "It will be a good learning experience for us in terms of what we have heading into the home series against Northeastern the following week (Feb. 22-23)." Starting Rotation Taking Shape Mohl is "pretty confident" about his opening weekend rotation. He also has plan for USF's five-game run after watching his pitchers shine during last weekend's intrasquad action. Senior right-hander Collin Sullivan is scheduled to get the ball in the season opener for the second straight year. The Randolph, Mass., native led the Bulls last season in strikeouts (73) and innings pitched (81.2). Sullivan had 11 quality starts of at least five innings in 14 overall starts as a junior. Freshman right-hander Jack Jasiak (Spring Hill, Fla.) has been rewarded with a start on Saturday for impressing all preseason. The former F.W. Springstead High School standout is one of six freshmen on USF's pitching staff, but Jasiak doesn't act like it. "He's more mature than most freshmen," Mohl said. "His work ethic is much like an upperclassman. His preparation, everything he does, is consistent, it's thoughtful. He's got a chance to be a special player for us moving forward." Redshirt junior Carson Ragsdale (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) will make his return as a starter Sunday after missing all of last season due to Tommy John surgery. Prior to the setback, the right-hander struck out 24 in 21.1 innings of relief in 2018 and he's back to his old ways. "He's fully recovered. Obviously, the last thing to come back usually with the Tommy John guys is their command," Mohl said. "Last Sunday, he ended up with eight strikeouts, one walk. I think he gave up two hits in five innings. He looked really good this past weekend." Once opening weekend is in the books, Baron Stuart is slated to start at Florida A&M on Monday afternoon. The junior right-hander from Okeechobee, Fla., went 4-3 in 10 starts last season. "Tuesday's game at Florida State will be to be determined, based on who we use on the weekend," Mohl said. Youth Will Serve Early Another thing that stood out to Mohl this preseason is USF's freshman talent and fans will get a good look right away. Speedy Dontae Mitchell is penciled in as USF's starter in center field for opening night. The St. Petersburg, Fla., product out of Lakewood High School was Perfect Game USA's preseason AAC Freshman of the Year selection. "He's a real exciting player," Mohl said. "I look forward to seeing what he's gonna do this year." On Mitchell's right will be another freshman in the outfield. Daniel Cantu (Jacksonville, Fla.) is scheduled to start in left field on Friday night. The former Creekside High School standout was named Class 7A, Region 4 Player of the Year as a prep senior and St. Johns County Player of the Year as a junior. Experience and Familiarity on New Coaching Staff Mohl's new coaching staff features familiar faces and plenty of winning experience. Assistant coach/recruiting coordinator Bo Durkac worked with Mohl at Illinois State from 2010-14. Durkac served as head coach of the Redbirds from 2015-18. "It's like we haven't missed a beat," Mohl said. "He takes a lot of pride in what he does with the development of our hitters." Assistant coach Alan Kunkel headed to Tampa after winning a pair of Class 4A state titles in four seasons as head varsity coach of Calvary Christian Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. "He's had tons of success at the high school level," Mohl said. "His ability to relate to these guys and to teach the fundamentals of the game is second to none." Volunteer assistant coach Karsten Whitson was a first-round pick by San Diego in 2010 and an 11th-round selection by Boston in 2014. Prior to pro ball, he pitched on two SEC champion/College World Series teams during his Florida career (2010-14). Whitson was an assistant coach at Pensacola State College the past two seasons.

  21. For the two other baseball fans, not sure if ya saw this, wonder if this will wrap a spot for our ole boy https://www.mlb.com/rangers/news/jimmy-herget-claimed-by-rangers
  22. More baseball..... Looks like the longest active Bull in the majors is, hopefully, temporarily, out of a job "Relievers A.J. Cole, Tyler Olson, Tyler Clippard, Dan Otero, Cody Anderson, Danny Salazar and Nick Goody are no longer with the Tribe. Cole signed a minor league deal with the Blue Jays, while Goody was claimed by the Rangers." https://www.cleveland.com/tribe/2019/12/cleveland-indians-max-out-40-man-roster-by-re-signing-rhp-james-hoyt.html
  23. This is what I've come up with thus far, if anyone has any extra info let me know. Somewhere in there we are @ Cinn, @ECU, @ WSU, and home v Memphis and UCF. So thats 5 weekends yet to be scheduled plus a bye makes 6, so that leave 2 OOC teams maybe 3 if the season starts 2/14 instead of 2/21 but with that Monday game against FAMU scheduled (according to famu) idk how realisztic that is. So whatever, take it for whats its worth. Just looking ahead.
