Head coach: Jay Guest, second season
2014 record: 24-10 (8-2 Northwest, first)
Returning lettermen (starters): 10 (five)
Top players: P/OF Sam Pastrone (Sr.), P/OF Ben Cutting (Sr.), SS Nick Quintana (Jr.), C/OF Joe Fitzhugh (So.)
Outlook: After winning the Northwest League last year, the Aggies bring back five starters.
Pastrone (.341, 2 HR, 7 doubles/6-2, 2.45 ERA), Cutting (4-1, 1.99 ERA, 31.2 innings, 33 strikeouts), Quintana (.425, 7 HR, 16 doubles) and Fitzhugh (.366, 9 doubles) are expected to be among the team’s leaders.
“If we can throw strikes and play solid defense, we might be able to win a few games,” Guest said. “Offensively, we will need to execute our plan and have good at-bats.”
