Spikes Set Lineup

The State College Spikes are ready for business now that the draft's concluded. Here's some of the guys that will there:

Recent college draft choices OF Justin Bencsko (20th round: Villanova), SS Kelson Brown (34th round: Linfield), IF Chase Lyles (32nd round: Northwestern State), C Matt Skirving (30th round: Eastern Michigan), Justin Ennis (33rd round: Lousiana State-Shreveport) and Kevin Decker (39th round: College of Charleston) are apparently signed, since they're now at State College's mini-camp.

They're in good company. 2009 second-round choice RHP Brooks Pounders, fourth-rounder LHP Zack Dodson, and sixth-rounder RHP Zack Von Rosenberg, all 19 years old, will be featured members of the Spike rotation. Other 2009 draft picks playing at SC are SS Walker Gourley (13th round), RHP Ryan Beckman (18th round), LHP Zac Fuesser (34th round), and RHP Teddy Fallon (43rd round).

International players are 2B Gift Ngoepe, Panamanian LHP Eliecer Navarro, and Dominican 3B Andury Acevedo. Right-handed pitchers Mitch Fienemann and Jarryd Sullivan, both 20 years old, will be the first two Australian players to suit up in State College.
