2015 preview: Wofford

Fifth in a series of 2015 season previews for college/junior college baseball programs in South Carolina. I've asked for responses from every school. I'll run all I receive. Some days, I may run more than one. I'll publicize all on Twitter (@palmettobase) and Facebook (

Responses by Wofford assistant J.J. Edwards

Palmetto State Baseball: Based on their development so far, who appear to have the best chance of playing pro ball?

JE: Luke Leftwich Jr RHP; Will Stillman JR RHP;Jacob Condra-Bogan JR RHP

PSB: What are your biggest areas of concern entering the 2015 season?

JE: The biggest question we have going into the 2015 season is who is going to step up and fill the shoes of our 3 players that graduated last year. Our 4, 5, and 6 hitters need to be replaced; looking for some younger players to step up.

PSB: In what areas does your team appear to be improved from the 2014 season?

JE:  The Bullpen seems to be improved from last year, adding some more arms should give us some more depth.

PSB: Based on fall workouts, which returnees from 2014 (including redshirts) look best prepared to play a bigger role in 2015?

JE: Sophomore CF Kody Ruedisili, had a strong fall and looks a lot more comfortable in the box

PSB: Based on fall workouts, which newcomers are most likely to contend for major roles in 2015?

JE:  Mack Nathanson Catcher, Adam Scott LHP, look to be the two newcomers that look they can impact us right away.

Next: Winthrop
