Diamond Dawgs Returning

Looks like Perno will have a strong nucleus of his NCAA regional team back, including ace Michael Palazzone.  Of the current Dawgs that were drafted, only Cone, who was a first rounder, RHP Cecil Tanner and OF Chase Davidson signed pro contracts.  Tyler Maloof and Peter Verdin will return this spring with Palazzone. 

Also, several of the top rated signing class signed contracts, including first rounder Dante Bichette, Patrick Leonard, Matt Taylor, Nick Delmonico, and Tyler Greene.  Wayne County star Tyler Palmer, who was drafted by Florida early, but got hurt over the summer, not to enroll, either. 

That leaves LHP Jarrett Brown, RHP Mike Mancuso, RHP David Sosebee, OF Hunter Cole, and OF/RHP Heath Holder all joining the Diamond Dawgs for the Spring.  If any one of those pitchers can step up and be a starter, Perno's team will be in good shape.

DelMonico was the kid we wanted and lost him at the last minute.

I think the weekend starting rotation is pretty set with Pallazone, Wood, and Dietrich. Every starting position player returns with the exception of Cone. If those Fresman pitchers can provide some quality depth for the bullpen and mid-week games Georgia could be pretty good.

However, Carolina is going to be loaded again with both of thier top 2 pitchers turning down pro contracts and most of Florida's roster is back as well.
