Summer Collegiate: Top 30 Teams (7/7)
       
Published: Wednesday, July 07, 2010

SUMMER BASEBALL
TOP 30 TEAMS
 
With a standout pitching staff led by Louisiana State righthander Anthony Ranaudo, the Cape Cod League’s Brewster Whitecaps remain the nation’s No. 1-ranked summer league team for the third week in a row.
 
The Whitecaps continue to lead the Cape League’s Eastern Division with a 15-6 record, thanks in large part to a league-best 2.12 team ERA.
 
No Brewster pitcher has been as dominant as the 6-foot-7 Ranaudo, a supplemental first-round pick of the Boston Red Sox in the June draft. He might have been one of the top 2-3 players drafted overall were it not for an elbow injury that adversely impacted his junior season at LSU.
 
Ranaudo has been injury-free, and flawless, in his first three starts this summer for Brewster. He was unscored on in his three starts, while combining for a 2-0, 0.00 record with just seven hits and three walks in 18 innings, and striking out 16.
 
PG CrossChecker’s ranking of summer league clubs are compiled in conjunction with the summer-league website,www.summercollegebaseball.net. The nation’s top 30 summer-league teams will be ranked each week, on Tuesday or Wednesday. An emphasis is placed on the league’s competitive level, the prospective professional-quality talent on each club, a team’s won-loss record and its league dominance in arriving at the rankings. Each club must have at least a .500 record to be eligible.
