Jackson Rutledge Draft Preview

Givanni Damico    | May 21st, 2019

Jackson Rutledge, SP (San Jacinto Junior College)

Height: 6’8″
Weight: 240 LBs
Age: 20
Bats: Right
Throws: Right
2019 Stats (as of May 19, 2019): 9-2, 0.87 ERA, 14.67 K/9, 3.28 BB/9, 4.6 H/9, 4 CG
Fastball: 70 Slider: 65 Curveball: 55 Changeup: 45 Control: 45 Overall: 55

Jackson Rutledge was born on April 1, 1999, to John and Susan Rutledge. Rutledge attended Rockwood Summit High School in St. Louis, Missouri. As a senior in high school, Rutledge went 7-1 with a 1.19 ERA, striking out 84 batters in 41 innings. As a freshman in college, Rutledge attended Arkansas University where he would only pitch 15.1 innings during his freshman season. He was left off of the postseason roster which prompted him to transfer to San Jacinto JC. At San Jacinto as a sophomore this season, Rutledge is carving it up. He has thrown four complete games and is striking out over 14 batters per nine innings. His control hasn’t been bad either, walking about three batters per nine. I’m sure Arkansas is missing him right now. It looks like the transfer was the right decision for Rutledge as he is now viewed as a first-round prospect for the 2019 MLB Draft.

Opinion: NCAA Transfer Rules are Stupid

Daniel Corrigan | March 22nd, 2019

The Transfer rules have always been weird. Coaches can leave programs whenever they want to seek “better opportunity” but when an athlete does it, they are “selfish” and they lack “competitiveness.” Also, unless the NCAA permits it, the athlete needs to sit out a year.

It was announced Sunday that Florida State quarterback Deondre Francois had been dismissed from the team due to allegations of abuse from his former girlfriend.
