BA lists Austin Kubitza as one of the top 50 sophomores. Seventh to be precise. In terms of scouting, the Bucs seem to have been right on. He was the Rice Friday night starter last year and has won all sorts of awards. None of these guys are draft-eligible,
|7.||Austin Kubitza, rhp, Rice||BL-TR||6-5||202||Pirates '10 (7)|
|29.||Kent Emanuel, lhp, UNC||BL-TL||6-4||188||Pirates '10 (19)|
|42.||Dale Carey, of, Miami||BR-TR||6-2||184||Pirates '10 (21)|
|49.||Zack Weiss, rhp, UCLA||BR-TR||6-2||210||Pirates '10 (10)|
In contrast, Kent Emanuel did nothing at UNC last year. (Unless you consider a four-hit complete-game shutout against Texas in the college world series worthy of note.) Dale Carey hit 0.271 for Miami, and Zack Weiss made 22 appearances, including nine midweek starts for UCLA. He went 5-3 with a 2.86 ERA, with 53 strikeouts and 22 walks in 66.0 innings.
