Troy continues first round trajectory as one of many impact college FSS alumni

Tommy Troy continues to show he’s earned being selected in the first round of the upcoming 2023 MLB Draft. The junior infielder is riding a seven-game hitting streak for Stanford, including going 6-for-13 in a three-game sweep of Arizona State this past weekend. An alumni of the loaded 2019 International Week that is somehow still continuing to produce first-rounders, Troy is now hitting .389 on the season along with ten homers and 33 RBI, and has somehow upped his stock in many draft rankings and mocks.

Drew Christo, RHP — Nebraska

The big 6-foot-4, 230-pound sophomore has been used somewhat sparingly with Nebraska this season, but has made an impact in big moments when he has been out there. Christo, who starred in both the 2020 National Tournaments and National Combine, racked up a season-high eight strikeouts in a season-long four inning outing back on April 25, picking up the win along the way.

Edwin Toribio, INF — College of Central Florida

Toribio was recently named the Mid-Florida Conference Player of the Year and also earned 1st Team Infielder honors after a stunning year for the College of Central Florida in which he hit .409 with a record-breaking 20 homers and 72 RBI over the regular season. They open their playoffs on May 12 in the FCSAA Division I/NJCAA South Atlantic District Baseball Championships.

Will Tippett, INF — South Carolina

Tippett was one of the more under the radar players at the 2021 Main Event, but impressed with two extra-base hits at the time. He’s only done more of the same since; the Gamecocks freshman has hits in four of his last five games, and five of his last seven, including homers in back-to-back games against Auburn and Winthrop.

Jarvis Evans, LHP — Georgia

Another player at the 2021 Main Event who wasn’t talked about as much as he should have been at the time, Evans racked up six strikeouts at Citi Field, and has started to flash that kind of potential in college ball as well. The freshman established a new career-high with seven strikeouts in a May 6 win against Tennessee, allowing just one run en route to just his second NCAA win.

Luke Hill, INF — Arizona State

Starting to notice a theme about the 2021 Main Event? Hill reached base in six plate appearances in Queens, including a triple to the right-center field gap. He’s now one of the best freshmen in college ball, and has smacked two homers in his last four games, and has recorded at least one knock in each of those contests. Hill is now hitting .335 on the season, and is third on the team with 41 RBI.
