His second hit today was a single between third and short with 103 EV so he’s scalding the ball even though it’s not leaving the park.

Gordon Graceffo is lighting up High A. I think he's the next big pitcher we have in this system. Expect him to jump up the boards this year. He's got to be a top 10 prospect by the end of the year. BP, Fangraphs, and BA all love him.

46 Ks in 33 innings already.

Already 22 years old, but he has insane stuff. I think he jumps to AA this year. Possibly AAA next and maybe could be seen by late next year.

Zack Thompson and Matthew Liberatore are both figuring it out as lefties and are atop AAA in starting pitching.

I feel like we should be seeing one of them very soon.

46 Ks and ... 2 BB? 1.42 FIP - he's no Helsley but that's pretty good.

Putting this here rather than starting a college thread.

Ever seen a baseball hit to Pluto?

Well, this homer might not have entered the stratosphere, but Oklahoma State first baseman Griffin Doersching did the closest thing to it, crushing a ball off the bat at 113 mph that traveled 513 feet according to data provided by OSU.

For reference, the longest home run recorded in the Statcast era (since 2015) was a 505-foot rocket from Nomar Mazara in 2019. Only one other homer in that span eclipsed the 500-foot mark, with the other being a 504-foot Giancarlo Stanton moonshot in '16.

While we can’t verify the distance officially, it sure looked the part, as it cleared the scoreboard in left field at OSU’s O’Brate Stadium. Admittedly, the NCAA's use of metal and composite bats may have aided in the flight distance of Doersching's blast.

For Doersching, it was his ninth homer of 2022, as the 23-year-old is having a breakout season in his first year with the Cowboys. The 6-foot-4 grad transfer has been on a tear over his past eight games, driving in a whopping 19 runs coming into Friday night.
