  • After a three-month delay, the boys of summer return to the baseball diamond July 23 for the 2020 MLB season.
    Every club is allowed up to 60 players under the adjusted roster rules that followed the cancellation of Minor League Baseball in 2020. With a maximum of 1,800 spots available, 806 are currently occupied by athletes who played college baseball.
    The 806 players represent 237 schools across Division I, II and III. In 2020, no school has more players in the MLB than Florida.
    The Gators lead all programs with 19 players. The notables include reigning National League Rookie of the Year Pete Alonso (New York Mets) as well as outfielder Harrison Bader (St. Louis Cardinals) and reliever Darren O’Day (Atlanta Braves).
    Virginia is next with 17 players around the league. Notably, closer Sean Doolittle won a World Series with the Washington Nationals in 2019. Four other programs — Cal State Fullerton, LSU, Vanderbilt and North Carolina — have 15 or more players on MLB rosters.

    Of those six teams, only one plays outside of the ACC and SEC. Those are the only two conferences with more than 100 players at the professional level. They combine to make up over 31 percent of the college baseball players in Major League Baseball.
    (Note: This list highlights players on 60-man player pools, according to MLB team websites, as of July 21.)

  • Question....does anyone know. How many players are on the MLB roster who were recruited by Head Coach Vanderhook? My specific question is, as the head coach how many players are on a MLB roster.

    Recruiting for players usually starts when they are a Soph or JR in HS so there could be some overlap but I am going to compile this based on the seasons the player was on campus and whom the coach was when the player signed. Most people know that players usually sign because of the lead recruiter and/or the position coach but I will keep this simple by only listing the HC. It's interesting to note that not one position player signed by Hook is appearing on a 60 player roster.

    Suzuki (02-04) - Horton

    Turner (03-06) - Horton

    Garneau (06-09) - Signed by Horton, played for Horton and Serrano

    K Davis (07-09) - Signed by Horton, played for Horton and Serrano

    Colon (08-10) - Signed by Horton, played for Serrano

    Nick Ramirez (09-11) - Serrano

    Noe Ramirez (09-11) - Serrano

    Devenski (10 - JC transfer) - Serrano

    Floro - (10-12) - Signed by Serrano, played for Serrano and Hook

    Lorenzen (11-13) - Signed by Serrano, played for Serrano and Hook

    Wallach (11-13) - Signed by Serrano, played for Serrano and Hook

    JD Davis (12-14) - Signed by Serrano, played for Hook

    Chapman (12-14) - Signed by Serrano, played for Hook

    Eshelman (13-15) - Hook

    Bickford (14 - left after FR year) - Hook

    Seabold (15-17) - Hook

    College Baseball Programs With The Most Players On 2020 MLB Opening Day Rosters

    By Teddy Cahill Joe Healy on July 28, 2020

    The MLB season opened this weekend to the delight of many around the game. Included in that group are many in college baseball who beyond just wanting to watch the highest level of baseball also have a rooting interest as they keep a close eye on their former players.

    Cal State Fullerton had the most former players on Opening Day active rosters with 12, just ahead of North Carolina's 11. It is the second straight year Fullerton has held that honor. In 2019, the Titans had 10 players on Opening Day rosters, matched by Long Beach State. North Carolina ranked sixth with seven.

    Cal State Fullerton—12

    Reds RHP Michael Lorenzen, Astros C Dustin Garneau, Astros RHP Chris Devenski, Angels RHP Noe Ramirez, Dodgers RHP Dylan Floro, Marlins C Chad Wallach, Mets 3B J.D. Davis, Athletics 3B Matt Chapman, Athletics OF Khris Davis, Dodgers 3B Justin Turner, Nationals C Kurt Suzuki, Reds INF Christian Colon.

    It speaks to the program’s consistency through the years that Fullerton has 12 big leaguers on Opening Day rosters from all different eras of Titan baseball. Pitching is the bread and butter of the program, but there are also a number of accomplished position players in this group.

    Leaders by school.

    SCHOOL PLAYERS
    Cal State Fullerton 12
    North Carolina 11
    LSU 9
    Vanderbilt 9
    Mississippi State 8
    Arkansas 7
    Louisville 7
    South Carolina 7
    UCLA 7
