    Looks like a good year in the portal and freshman recruiting. Back to better success for Duke Baseball in 2023.

    Luke, thanks for your contributions.

    Thanks for the update, unfortunately I must spread sporks.
    I know the season is still months off, but doesn't Duke do a spring practice with a few exhibition games?

    The fall schedule should be posted soon. It usually begins in mid-October and ends mid-November. It should include a couple of exhibition games against other schools, a couple of team scrimmages, and ends with what they call their World Series in which they divide the team and play a best of 3 series.

    Thanks. My brain said Fall, my fingers typed Spring.

    I was pretty sure that the team did something in those months.

    Duke has hired Eric Tyler as hitting coach. Tyler is a former ECU player and assistant coach and most recently has been an instructor at Baseball Rebellion in Raleigh.

    Matt Mervis, former Duke player, a nondrafted FA in 2020 who signed with the Cubs has been named the teams hottest prospect of the month by Pipeline. He's listed as the Cubs #21 prospect. In the last 24 games at AAA he's hit .292/.360/984. For the season across 3 levels he's hit, .309/.368/.590 with 25 homers, 35 doubles and 96 RBI. Future looks good for the former Blue Devil.

    GoDuke!

    I'm all in on that. Maybe a future replacement for Goldy at first.

    Mervis hit a walk off homer in the 2-1 win for the Iowa Cubs last night.

    Another former Dukie to keep an eye on is Joey Loperfido. He is batting.319 with 12 homers, 61 RBI, and 31 SB at Class A Fayetteville and high A Asheville this season in the Astros organization.

    Two good opportunities to see how Duke looks against quality ACC competition. Duke plays UVA in football on the 1st, so that State game could make for a fun weekend.

    Duke may have a 6'8 left handed pitcher that also plays basketball. TJ Power wants to play 2 sports.
    "Power is also left-handed pitcher who throws in the upper 80s and is hoping to play both sports in college."
    ďIím looking at trying to play both,Ē he told ZAGSBLOG. ďAt all these schools, Iíve talked with the baseball coach and all that so it will be kind of a dialogue between the two coaches when I get on campus, but yeah Iím trying to play both a little bit.Ē

    The more important dialog, of course, will be with the hoop coach. This past season, Duke baseball played 26 games (roughly half its total) before April 1...I guess the question is would Jon allow TJ to do some throwing in Feb and March, otherwise it probably wouldn't work.

    I'd prefer he not do any damage to his dunking arm.
