Hoping this isnt a repeat since this is a couple days old, but July 14: Athletics acquire Homer Bailey from Royals The A’s added a starter for cheap, acquiring Bailey in exchange for infield prospect Kevin Merrell (ranked Oakland’s 17th-best prospect).

  3. Gulf Breeze's Brandon Schrepf earns place in German national baseball program Eric J. Wallace, Pensacola News Journal Published 3:39 p.m. CT July 19, 2019 Excerpt: University of South Florida outfielder Brandon Schrepf, a 2018 Gulf Breeze High grad, has found a place in the German national baseball program, which is preparing for international competitions this fall. Born into a military family from Penzing, a small municipality in southern Germany, Schrepf holds German citizenship and has long hoped for the chance to play baseball at the international level. ... Schrepf made the cut for Germany’s 70-man national team squad in May. Later in the summer, German national team head coach Steve Janssen, formerly a Chicago Cubs pitching coach, informed Schrepf that he’d made the final 20-man roster for the German U23 National Baseball Team.

  4. USF ATHLETICS GoUSFBulls.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Web Link: http://bit.ly/30yGkaa Mohl Completes Coaching Staff with Addition of Bo Durkac Durkac recently coached at Miami for a season after nine seasons at Illinois State, four as head coach TAMPA, July 16, 2019 – Head coach Billy Mohl is excited to welcome the final addition to his coaching staff with the hiring of Bo Durkac. Durkac will serve as an assistant coach, working with the infielders and hitters as well as holding the responsibilities of recruiting coordinator. He spent the 2019 season as the volunteer assistant coach at the University of Miami. After missing the NCAA Tournament in 2017 and 2018, the Hurricanes went 41-20 last year, returning to postseason play and winning two games at the Starkville Regional. Durkac aided in the development of Raymond Gil, who was named to the All-ACC Third Team. Miami hit just .231 as a team in 2017 and .257 in 2018. With the help of Durkac instructing the offense, the Hurricanes finished fourth in the ACC with a .291 batting average in 2019. They led the conference and finished 10th nationally with 85 home runs and led the league with a .472 slugging percentage. “I am thrilled to announce our newest assistant coach and recruiting coordinator, Bo Durkac,” said Mohl. “I had the pleasure of working with Bo for five years while we were assistants together under Mark Kingston at Illinois State. He was a large part of turning Illinois State into a premier program in the Midwest during our time there. Bo has a relentless work ethic on the recruiting trail and on the field. There is no doubt in my mind our players will reach their potential working with him every day. More importantly, Bo is a high-character individual and I am looking forward to him, his wife Heather, his son Gabe, and his daughter Dylan joining the Bulls family.” Durkac and Mohl are no strangers to one another, coaching on the same staff while at Illinois State from 2010-14. Durkac spent nine seasons with the Redbirds (2010-2018), including the last four as head coach. Illinois State consistently ranked among the MVC’s top offensive teams during Durkac’s tenure, and 17 student-athletes to play under Durkac were selected in the MLB Draft, including St. Louis Cardinals All-Star shortstop Paul De Jong. “Coach Durkac is a dedicated baseball coach who has professional playing experience and has a strong desire to learn and teach the game at the highest level,” said De Jong. Durkac went 82-124 as head coach at Illinois State. The team made the third-largest jump in DI RPI from 2017-2018, going from No. 268 to No. 118. That team had the 40th best offense nationally and the 40th best fielding percentage. The team went 5-5 against NCAA Tournament at-large opponents in 2018. The 2016 recruiting class was ranked No. 2 in the MVC and the program had five-straight 30-win seasons during his time. The team won its first-ever outright Missouri Valley Conference regular season title, set the MVC record with eight first-team all-conference selections and won a program record 39 games in 2013. Durkac made sure his teams were just as successful off the field, averaging a GPA of 3.26 over his four years as head coach with a high of 3.48 in the spring of 2017. The team was one of only 40 DI programs to earn the ABCA Team Academic Excellence Award in 2016-17. The Redbirds were one of only 34 DI teams to earn the award in 2015-16. “Bo is a great addition for Coach Mohl and USF,” said Kingston, former head coach at USF and current head coach at South Carolina. “He will work tirelessly in all areas of the program, while teaching and developing players at the highest level. He is a true student of the game and will ensure USF reaches its potential.” Prior to his time at Illinois State, Durkac spent seven years as the hitting coach at Charlotte, working with the infielders and assisting in recruiting efforts. Durkac coached or recruited 36 all-conference selections, three All-Americans and three freshman All-Americans at Charlotte. He helped the team to a 232-153-1 overall record from 2003-09. Charlotte was the Atlantic 10 regular season and tournament champion in both 2007 and 2008, earning NCAA Regional appearances. Under Durkac’s guidance, the team set a school record with a .333 batting average in 2008. Charlotte went 49-12 in 2007 and was ranked No. 24 by the NCBWA at the end of the season. Before joining the coaching ranks, Durkac played seven years of professional baseball. He finished his professional career with the Long Island Ducks of the Atlantic League in 2001. He also played for Sonoma County in the Western Baseball League that summer and the Taichung Agan of the Taiwan Major Leagues during the spring. Prior to 2001, he played three seasons in the Western Baseball League for the Chico Heat and was named a Western League All-Star in 1999. That fall, he played for Team USA in the XIV International Cup in Sydney, Australia. Durkac spent the 1996 and 1997 seasons with MLB farm teams. In 1996, he hit .298 for the Visalia Oaks (A-Advanced for the Detroit Tigers) of the California League. He spent the 1997 season with the High Desert Mavericks (A-Advanced for the Arizona Diamondbacks), batting .282. In 1995, he split his first pro season between the independent Adirondack Lumberjacks of the Northeast League and the Will County Claws of the North Central League. Before his professional career, Durkac was a two-time All-Metro Conference third baseman at Virginia Tech. During his three seasons with the Hokies, he hit .360 with a school-record 60 doubles. Durkac played all but two innings in his final two collegiate seasons. In 1993, he was the Metro Conference Newcomer of the Year, as he led the conference in hitting with a .423 batting average. The Kittanning, Pa., native graduated with a liberal arts and sciences degree from Virginia Tech in 1995. He has also authored two books about baseball: “2001: A Baseball Odyssey” and “How to Become a Professional Baseball Player.”

  6. USF ATHLETICS GoUSFBulls.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Web Link: http://bit.ly/2ZWi3dW Bulls Welcome Alan Kunkel as Newest Assistant Kunkel brings more than 15 years of coaching experience within the state of Florida to Tampa TAMPA, June 28, 2019 – Head coach Billy Mohl is excited to announce the addition of Alan Kunkel to his USF baseball staff. “I’m pleased to welcome Alan Kunkel into the Bulls baseball family as an assistant coach,” said Mohl. “Alan has developed an unbelievable reputation around the state of Florida as a great baseball coach, but more importantly as a developer of young men. His Florida ties are strong and will help us immediately in recruiting.” Kunkel arrives in Tampa following four seasons as head varsity coach and Director of Baseball Operations at Calvary Christian Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. He guided the program to a pair of Class 4A state titles during his tenure. The team finished 22-4 in 2019 and 28-4 in 2018. He coached the Florida Dairy Farmers 4A Player of the Year in 2017 and 2018 (Christian Scott). Kunkel coached and developed Raynel Delgado, a sixth-round selection in the 2018 MLB Draft by the Cleveland Indians. He also coached pitcher Jake Eder, who was drafted in 2017 by the New York Mets before honoring his collegiate commitment to Vanderbilt. Eder pitched and won Game 3 of the College World Series on June 26, as he helped the Commodores earn their second national title in the last six years. Prior to his time at Calvary Christian Academy, Kunkel was the head coach of Florida Travel Ball Tucci and the Director of Recruitment and Teams from 2010-2013. He then returned to FTB in August of 2017. In 2012, FTB was rated as one of the top travel ball organizations in the U.S. in 2012. The team was the WWBA World Championship runner-up in 2017. Kunkel coached nine MLB Draft selections with Florida Travel Ball, including two first rounders. Nick Gordon was the fifth overall pick in 2014, Christian Arroyo was the 25th selection in 2013, while Sean Reid-Foley was the 49th overall pick in 2014. From 2013-2017, Kunkel was the Director of College Recruiting and head coach of the 17U Prime Team with South Florida Elite in Pembroke Pines. The team made the WWBA Final Four and Perfect Game World Series Final Four in 2015. The team placed third at the Perfect Game World Series in 2014 and was the PG Memorial Day Weekend champion that year as well. He coached 10 All-Americans and 20 players that were selected in the MLB Draft. Tristan Casas was taken in the first round (26th overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2018. Jeter Downs was the 32nd overall selection of the Cincinnati Reds in 2017. Mark Vientos, Joe Perez and Quentin Holmes were all second-round draft picks in 2017. Kunkel also had a coaching stint at Westminster Academy in Fort Lauderdale as an assistant with both the baseball and football programs from 2012-2015. He coached with the USSSA All-America Team in 2013, as it competed in Prague, Czech Republic and won bronze. The team was also the 18U champion of the Gold Medal Games. Kunkel's first head coaching role was at Orangewood Christian School in Maitland, Fla. He was there from 2004-2011 and coached his team to a 120-80 record over that time. Orangewood Christian was the 2A District 7 champions in 2009, 2010 and 2011. The 2011 club was the Class 2A state runner-up, finishing 30-2. That team also held the Sentinel Super Six No. 1 ranking, was in Baseball America's top 50 and set the state home run record for a single season (83). The team had several individual honors, including a Baseball America All-American, two Under Armor All-Americans, three Rawlings All-Americans, one Louisville Slugger All-American, two Central Florida Player of the Year recipients, 11 All Central Florida Team members, five all-state players and 23 all-district players. Under Kunkel's guidance, Orangewood Christian had 13 players committed to play in college, five at the NCAA Division I level. Of the notable players that Kunkel coached are Dante Bichette Jr. (51stoverall pick of the 2011 MLB Draft), Tomas Nido (eighth-round selection in the 2012 MLB Draft), Forest Wall (35th overall pick of the 2014 MLB Draft) and Vicente Conde (ninth-round pick in the 2014 MLB Draft). Throughout his coaching career, Kunkel has coached 73 players that were selected in the MLB Draft dating back to the 2011. Aside from coaching, Kunkel has served as an associate scout with the Toronto Blue Jays, evaluating talent of area high school and collegiate players since 2017. He held the same title with the San Diego Padres from November, 2010 - August, 2017. Kunkel played at Glen Oaks Community College in Centreville, Mich., from 1995-1997. He then transferred to the University of North Carolina, where he played in Chapel Hill from 1997-1998. His UNC team was a NCAA Regional finalist in 1998 and was ranked in the top 15. What they're saying about Kunkel Joe Girardi - Analyst, MLB Network and FOX Sports | Former MLB catcher and manager "Coach Kunkel has developed my son Dante as a baseball player, but more importantly helped him develop into a great man." Christian Arroyo - infielder for the Tampa Bay Rays "Kunk was one of the best coaches I had the chance of playing for. Not only did he care about us players immensely, but he also made sure that we were getting the most out of our time at the ballpark. He's a phenomenal leader, fantastic father and incredible coach. I don't think there's anyone more deserving of being given this opportunity." Andrew Perez - USF baseball pitcher/closer (2016-18) - Drafted by the White Sox in the 8th round of the 2018 MLB Draft "Alan Kunkel is a player’s coach and understands and appreciates the development of his players. Having an opportunity to have been coached by him was amazing. He is very open and dedicated to help grow those he teaches by maximizing their potential." Coco Montes - USF baseball infielder (2016-18) - Drafted by the Rockies in the 15th round of the 2018 MLB Draft "I had the pleasure of playing for coach Kunkel back in high school with Elite Squad. He is always ready to help his players with anything they need on or off the field. Kunkel is a great coach and an even better person and I'm excited to see the positive effect he will have on the USF baseball program."
  7. So someone already stole my thunder, but its worth noting again that Jimmy H made it to the Bigs. He is now the third bull in the Majors at this present time. And I am not 100% sure but that is either the record or pretty close to it for the number of Bulls in the Majors at the same time. Jimmy was 1-4 over 33 relief appearances for the Louisville Bats. He had 2 saves in 4 opportunities and sported a 3.58 ERA and a WHIP of 1.43. Not lights out numbers in AAA so he is probably on a pretty tight leash. Lets hope he lasts! Also recently promoted was Andrew Perez who started the year with A Kannapolis Intimidators and a 2.25 ERA over 36 IP. His performance was enough to move him up to Advanced A ball with the Winston-Salem Dash. He has made 4 appearances and has a 3.38 ERA over 8 IP. Also Congrats are in order to Kevin Quackenbush for making the AAA PCL All-star roster. Who knows maybe he'll get called up to the Dodgers as rosters expend toward the end of the season. Jimmy is 2-2 over 33 relief appearances for the Oklahoma City Dodgers. He had 4 saves in 4 opportunities and sported a 3.11 ERA and a WHIP of 1.12. Quacker is still a lights out K artist with a 13.38 K/9ip and a K/BB ration of 6.22. Lotso potential there. Kind of weird journey for KQ, he was drafted by the Padres was brought up and sent down 12 times over 3 years before he elected to go free agency, the Reds signed him to AAA and brought him up once last year. He elected to go FA again and was out of job for over a month before the Dodgers signed him. It took Austin Adams a few years to find his spot with Seattle this year so it may just be a matter of finding the right spot. Good Luck Kevin! Shane Mclanahan is still rolling. After being promoted to Advanced A, all he has done is go 3-0 with a ERA of 0.39. He has allowed 1 earned run over 23+ innings and seems to have gotten the wild thing from the end of his last year with USF as he has 26 k to 3 bb. Far and above the best stats of any USF pitcher Austin Adams has found a home with Mariners. In 22.2 IP he has a 2.38 ERA, a 15.88 k/9ip and a 4/1 k to bb ratio. Phoenix Sanders is pitching well in the Rays farm club, he has an ERA of 2.19 over 37 innings and 9 saves in 12 opportunities. Opponents are batting .205 against him Peter Strzelecki is plugging along in Wisconsin, nothing spectacular, nothing awful. Hes an inning eater, 33.2 innings pitched in 23 appearances, opponents batting average is .279 but he has only allowed 14 total runs. On the down side, Tommy Eveld was demoted to AA after struggling with the AAA New Orleans Baby Cakes. An ERA of 7.71 and a 2-1 K to BB ratio probably doomed him. But on the flip side, back in AA he has had 2 appearances and has done well over 6.1 IP he has a 0.00 ERA and his bb/ip ratio is 3.5, much better Joe Cavallero is having a tough season, after being demoted early in the season to A+ ball, he has not fared much better with a 4.88 ERA through 20 appearances Also struggling is Ryan Valdes who was also demoted earlier to A+ ball. He however is on the DL with a shoulder strain so maybe he has been injured this year. He is in Bradenton playing for the Pirates if you want to root him on after he gets out off the DL And speaking of DL Dan Otero is on the 7 day DL for shoulder inflammation, he has pitched in 20 games for the Indians and has a 4.56 ERA Brandon Lawson, now with the Giants farm system, was on the DL for a broken toe, but now is back, he has 13 starts for the Richmond Flying Squirrels and sports a 2-4 record and an ERA of 4.04 Overall the Ex-Bulls are 22-33, 4.33 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, 28/37 SVO, 525K vs. 198BB, in 473.2 innings pitched
  8. Not as much excitement here as with the pitchers. But the Bulls have 4 position players in the minors. Top of that heap is Kevin Merrell who is with the AA MIdland Rockhounds of the Texas League. He is batting .258 with 32 RBIs and, surprise, surprise 10 Sacrifice Bunts Last year MVP darling Coco Montes is struggling a bit at the next level. Playing for the A Asheville Tourists of the South Atlantic League he is batting .233. He does have 8 HRs and 47 RBIs over 288 ABs so the production is there but aside from the BA, his OPS is 0.661 Statistically the best looking hitter we have this year is David Villar who plays for the Advanced A San Jose Giants. He has been on the injured list for a bit so with just 213 ABs he has 6 HRs, 33 RBIs and an OPS of 0.765 Finally Joe Genord, the new baby of the pro leagues, is up in the NY Penn Short League with the Brooklyn Cyclones but he shouldnt be there long. In 51 ABs he has 4 HRs and 4 2bs. His BA is .314 and his SLG is .627 with an OPS of exactly 1.000 Lets go Joe!
  9. Forgot out two newest Minor League Pitchers The Count Nelson Alvarez was drafted by the Yankees and is in the GCL with the Yankees East/West, He has had 3 outing, one was bad, giving up 2 runs in 0.2 inning, but the other two he has pitched 2 innings and has a perfect ERA Alec Wisely is learning the ropes out in Arizona with the Indians Red team. He has a ERA 4.70 over 7.2 ip
  10. USF ATHLETICS GoUSFBulls.com FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Web Link: http://bit.ly/2xd9yPo Summer Bulls Enter Final Week of June Gonzalez and Hogan have big games for Peninsula TAMPA, June 24, 2019 – Summer collegiate leagues are entering the final week of June, as a pair of USF baseball players have big weekends with the same club.

  11. Two relievers from the 2018 draft class are also on their way up, Andrew Perez and Bennett Sousa. Perez is a lefty who has vastly improved this year. His K-rate and BB-rate are at personal best marks and that has led to a 2.01 FIP. Bennett Sousa has also seen a best mark for walk rate this season, though his strikeouts are slightly down. He is an older right-handed pitcher, but has done very well in every MiLB stint so far and currently has a 2.98 FIP. Both of these promotions were long overdue. https://www.southsidesox.com/2019/6/19/18681847/danny-mendick-lincoln-henzman-steele-walker-white-sox-minor-league-weekly-update-week-11

  18. Those of you old enough (jk, everyone who follows baseball is old enough) to remember Austin Adams (2012) , he has clawed his way back up to the majors. On May 4th the Nats traded him to Seattle for a pitcher and cash and on the 13th he was called up. Had an appearance yesterday ( gave up a run in a single inning) but he is there. How long? Probably not, but who knows. Now we have 2 ex-Bulls in the pros, the other Dan Otero for the Indians is actually doing quite well, with a 2.70 ERA over 16.2 innings and 15 appearance. Go Bulls!
