Chippewas Tabbed Second in MAC West
The MAC released its' annual preseaon coaches' poll Wednesday with the Chippewas falling one point shy of being picked as the preseason favorite in the West Division. The Chippewas received 56 points to Ball State's 57 and three first-place votes to the Cardinals' four.
Junior right hander Jordan Foley will once again be the Chippewas' Friday starter after taking stake to the role last season. Foley will be making his first ever opening day start and is coming off a season in which he was 6-6 with a 3.03 earned run average. A native of The Colony, Texas, Foley was recently named the No. 37 junior prospect by Baseball America and the top prospect in the Mid-American Conference.
Junior Nick Regnier and sophomore Logan Regnier will look to build on their breakout seasons a year ago as the return as the Chippewas' starters in center and right field. The brothers combined to go 46-for-55 in stolen base attempts last season. Nick posted 17 extra-base hits and 38 RBI, while Logan ranked seventh in the country with seven triples and stole 25 bases as a true freshman.
Prospects, Propects, Prospects
Junior Jordan Foley isn't the only player scouts will have their eyes on this season as the CMU roster features four of the top eight prospects in the MAC accroding to Baseball America. The younger Regnier is ranked as the No. 3 prospect and junior closer Matt Trowbridge was ranked No. 4. Junior Nick Regnier rounded out Chippewas at No. 8 on the list of top 10 prospects in the conference.
