Stouffer hit for the cycle twice this year, only 2 others have done that before in NCAA.
"Blake is an athlete who can play in the infield or the outfield. He is rare in that he can hit for power and has good speed to cause havoc on the bases. Blake can be productive anywhere in the line-up and he allows us to have flexibility, both offensively and defensively." --Head Coach Rob Childress
Watched his first AB. Worked a full count after going down 0-2, then pulled a hard grounder down the first base line for a 2B. He has some good speed. The ball hit a little cutout and he had to bust it to 2nd and slid in safely. He isn't very big. Looks like he will be a corner OF'er most likely. More updates to come when I see his 2nd AB. FYI - He has a SWEET swing from the left side. Very smooth.
2nd AB: Takes a ball in. Takes strike inner third. Takes strike two, looked quite inside though. Strikes out on a good changeup away.
3rd AB: 1st and 2nd, no outs. He bunts into a FC (1-5). The pitcher makes a great play on what was a good bunt to get the guy at third.
In his first 3 AB's, he faced Ryan Berry, who seems pretty good. This year he went 116 ip, 2.71 era, 119 k, 32 bb
4th AB: Bobby Bramhall comes in to face Stouffer and turns him around to RH. (Bramhall: 1.88 era, 57 ip, 74 K, 28 bb... nasty changeup, 18th round pick to the Brewers)
Swing and a miss on a outside changeup, called strike on a fastball way outside, struck out on a changeup away.
He looks pretty patient, which can hurt him in college because atleast today, the zone was LARGE. He got cheated by having a good eye.
