A mid-week starter for Fairfield as a freshman, Pope transitioned to the weekend rotation and had a breakout sophomore season, posting a 2.98 ERA over eight starts with 48 strikeouts to 17 walks in 48 innings. Pope has continued that success this spring through his first 12 starts of the season, posting a 2.94 ERA over 67 innings with a career-best strikeout rate. A 6-foot-3, 210-pound righthander, Pope doesn’t have much projection remaining, but throws a fastball in the upper 80s and low 90s with an average curveball. His fastball was a tick better last summer in the Cape Cod League, where he threw 27 innings and allowed nearly 10 hits per nine innings, but still struck out 35 batters in 27 innings.
