DURHAM, N.C. – Former Anchorage Buc, Texas State senior pitcher Scott Grist was recognized by Baseball America on Monday as one of the top 50 collegiate senior prospects in the country going into the 2014 season. Grist came in 46th on the respected list.
Last season, Grist was a consistent starter for the Bobcats with 12 starts and 19 appearances. He tied for the team lead in wins with 5, going 5-2 on the season.
In 73 innings pitched, second most on the team, Grist struck out 48 batters and walked 21 while holding opponents to a .291 batting average. He finished 2013 with a 4.56 ERA.
He went a strong seven innings in a 10-3 victory over New Mexico State last season in what may have been his best outing of the year. He struck out seven while only walking one in 28 batters faced. He also tallied seven strikeouts against Houston on Feb. 24 of last season.
Grist will continue to be a heavy contributor for the Bobcats in 2014.
