2018 Draft Top 200 College Hitters Statistical Analysis



Here's a look at how the Top 200 college hitters in the 2018 draft class stacked up statistically. All stats are updated through the end of the regular season, but NCAA regionals stats (and NJCAA World Series stats) are not included.

Admittedly, these statistics are not always an apples to apples comparison. The competition levels vary widely, as there are Division I, Division II and Division III players included as well as junior college players. But it is still a useful look at each pitcher's statistical resume. For the color coding, players in the top third or bottom third of a category are coded with green for the top third and red for players in the bottom third. Relievers with less than 50 innings were not eligible to rank in the statistical comparisons.
