Jeff White article on our team with lots of good tidbits

Here are a few excerpts:

“We have the most new players we’ve ever had in my 19 falls,” O’Connor said Tuesday.

From the team that rode an improbable postseason run to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb., the Cavaliers lost such position players as Zack Gelof, Nic Kent, Logan Michaels and Brendan Rivoli, as well as pitchers Andrew Abbott, Blake Bales, Griff McGarry, Zach Messinger, Stephen Schoch, Mike Vasil and Kyle Whitten.

The Cavaliers’ fall roster includes 12 freshmen and five transfers....

Ortiz and Tappen chose to come back for their fifth years at Virginia, a development O’Connor called “very, very significant. It was like we got two of the biggest recruits in the recruiting class. They have experience, they know what it takes, and they can be great leaders. They’re both doing very well.”...

UVA pitchers threw 560 innings last season. Gone are the pitchers who combined for nearly 70 percent of those innings.

“We return around 160 innings,” O’Connor said. “It’s the most innings we’ve ever lost as a pitching staff, and it’s not even close.”...

Wyatt, Neeck and Savino, like Ortiz, did not pitch this fall....

All five transfers are pitchers.
