NEWCOMERS TO WATCH
Carter Putz, IF, 2018
Jafar Armstrong, OF, 2017

2015 OUTLOOK:  
Miege looks to climb the Eastern Kansas League standings with the return of seniors OF Michael Valdivia and 3B/RHP Zach Mahoney as well as juniors LHP Sam Duncan and SS/RHP Sam Burdolski. Duncan is a promising left-handed pitching prospect that logged a team-leading 41 innings last spring. In addition, the Stags have a strong group of underclassmen that could see varsity time this spring in freshman IF Carter Putz and sophomores OF Jafar Armstrong, RHP/IF Daniel Harper and LHP Adam White.
