2024 FAU Baseball Schedule | News
We're in search of a Friday replacement and have brought in some new guys. But my money is on CJ Smith taking on that role. Nick DelPrado could be in store for another starter position. Some new guys are in, and there will likely be some trial to discover the remainder and establish and confirm (Drumheller, Martzolf) positional roles (mid, long relief) outside of the main guys. Bottom line (at this point) we should be in a better place consistency wise from a rotational standpoint.
I like incoming freshman pitcher Kide Adetuyi. He could be a solid contributor. Coach Mac doesn't usually go with newcomers for significant roles but to me he has some upside based on his stuff.
On the offensive side, we obviously have A LOT to replace and there is no question that Nolan Schanuel 2.0 is not on the roster. What does that mean? It means that pitching must get better to offset the offense driving outcomes as it did last year, and some of the new positional guys need to step up and establish themselves at the plate.
Christian Adams, Spencer Rich, and Daulton Frank are candidates that can help this quest out of the gate.
From a competition standpoint, we will actually see a slight decline in the level of overall league play. Below are the remaining AAC teams 2023 RPI metrics compared to the incoming CUSA teams, of which FAU is a part of:
26 East Carolina
67 Charlotte (CUSA)
75 UTSA (CUSA)
79 FAU (CUSA)
108 Wichita State
167 Rice (CUSA)
190 UAB (CUSA)
The Owls land at 4, while they also left at 4 but had DBU as the leader (13) which has been replaced by ECU.
Settled in at the Founder’s Lounge in the Oxley Center as we await @FAUCoachMac, RHP @cjwilliams1__, RHP @OstranderBraden, CF Spencer Rich, and C @J_schroeder20 for @FAUBaseball Media Day. STAY TUNED! #FAU 🦉⚾️🧢 pic.twitter.com/KvfJhTvXzo— FAU Owls Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) January 24, 2024
NOLAN WHO? Despite having the departures of several key batters, @FAUCoachMac wants the new guys on @FAUBaseball to be the best versions of themselves when they step up to the plate! #FAU 🦉⚾️🧢 pic.twitter.com/FCdXEa6ezi— FAU Owls Nest (@FAU_Owls_Nest) January 24, 2024

Spoke to Coach Mac today and he confirmed my suspicions.
However, he also shared that Adetuyi had to undergo surgery and will not play this season.
