Name: Stephen Villines
HT/WT: 6’1″/195 lbs
Pitcher to Watch
Among those who will be returning is senior right-handed relief pitcher Stephen Villines. Villines, a native of Lake Forest, California, holds a 2.37 career ERA in 151.2 innings. He is known for his submarine-style pitching, and it has baffled hitters of the Big 12 during his three years. He was a member of the All-Big 12 Second Team in 2016 and after being an Honorable Mention in his sophomore year and All-Freshman team during his freshman year. In 2016 he pitched a total of 50.2 innings on 25 appearances, tallying a record of 5-2 with a 2.13 ERA and 47 strikeouts while only walking 16. He also takes a perfect fielding percentage into his senior year as he has yet to make an error in his college career.

Submariner with great deception, University of Kansas Jayhawks. Looks like Mets look to do some good work in day 3. Another signing that will free some money for the Mets.
