LHP/OF Jake Brentz (2013/Ballwin, MO): Brentz had pitched a grand total of 14 innings in his life before Saturday, so it was hard to know what to really expect. Even with no expectations, the 6-2/190 converted outfielder surpassed them, pitching mostly in the 92-94 mph range from a surprisingly polished low effort delivery and arm action.
