Winter Roster Dominated with Pitchers, Strong in Junior and Freshman Classes

Mississippi State has published a preliminary 2016 baseball roster, with 41 Diamond Dogs listed.

This updated official roster shows five fewer than the one given out during fall baseball practices. Players not on the latest edition are: IF Delvin Zinn, IF Matt Spruill, RHP Cole Barlow, LHP Andrew Mahoney, and LHP Alex London.

By opening day of the new season the official roster will be down to 35 players. There are only six seniors, and just five sophomores for that matter. So the bulk of the roster comes in the ‘odd’ classes with 15 juniors and the same number of freshmen including one redshirt.

Typically for this level of the sport the roster is heavy on arms with 21 primary pitchers.
