Rebs of Summer

Evan Anderson | LHP | Harwich Mariners (Cape Cod)
Anderson has made two appearances for the Mariners, including one start. He has pitched in just six innings, and will look to lower his 6.00 ERA as the summer progresses. The southpaw has dealt with a struggling defense behind him in his outings as seven runs he has surrendered have been unearned.

Tate Blackman | IF | Falmouth Commodores (Cape Cod) 
Blackman is second on the Falmouth team in hitting with a .270 batting average over 11 games. Three of his 10 hits have been doubles, tied for the team lead, and the Rebel has scored seven of the Commodores' 30 runs. Blackman has reached base in each of the last three games, crossing the plate a total of four times during that stretch.

Colby Bortles | IF | Hyannis Harbor Hawks (Cape Cod)
One of two Rebels on the Hyannis Harbor Hawks, Bortles has played in 11 games for the team that leads the Cape Cod Baseball League's West Division. In his first game with the club, the third baseman belted a home run in a 5-0 win, June 10. Four days later, Bortles went 3-for-5 to lead the Hawks to another victory.


 

 

Michael Fitzsimmons | IF | Albany Dutchmen (Perfect Game)
Fitzsimmons is the only Dutchmen to play in all 16 games thus far, leading the team with 15 hits. The infielder also leads the team in doubles (6) and RBI (11), while hitting at a .250 clip. He has crossed the plate seven times, third on the team, and the Dutchmen currently stand at 8-8 in the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League.

Will Golsan | IF | Baltimore Redbirds (Cal Ripken)
One of three Rebels playing for the Baltimore Redbirds in the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League, Golsan has kept the momentum going after becoming the Ole Miss starting second baseman this season. After hitting .290 as a freshman against the nation's toughest schedule, the infielder is hitting .326 in summer ball, recording 14 hits over 12 games. Four of those hits came on June 12, a game in which fellow Rebel Nic Perkins also produced a four-hit game as the Redbirds cruised to a 10-4 win. Golsan also has six steals to his credit and was named the league's player of the week, June 7.

Henri Lartigue | C | Brazos Valley Bombers (Texas)
Splitting time at catcher and playing in eight games, Lartigue has helped lead the Bombers to their current record of 12-4, the best mark in the Texas Collegiate League. The Southaven, Mississippi native is hitting at a .292 clip with eight RBI, the second-most on the team. Four of Lartigue's seven hits have gone for extra bases as he has smacked two doubles, one triple and one home run.

Nic Perkins | C | Baltimore Redbirds (Cal Ripken)
After finding a spot in the Ole Miss starting lineup towards the end of the 2015 campaign, Perkins has continued his production into the summer for the Baltimore Redbirds. The St. Charles, Missouri native is batting .342 which is the fourth-best average in the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League. Perkins has 13 hits in 13 games, including four doubles and four RBI. Along with Golsan, Perkins also went 4-for-5 to lead the Redbirds to a 10-4 victory, June 12. He completes his slash line with a .479 on base percentage and a .447 slugging percentage, ranking second and fourth in the league, respectively.

Errol Robinson | IF | Hyannis Harbor Hawks (Cape Cod)
The left side of the Harbor Hawks' infield consists of a pair of Rebels in Robinson and Bortles. Through 11 games this summer, Robinson has dazzled fans with his glove while also swinging a hot bat. The Ole Miss shortstop is hitting at a .306 clip for the Harbor Hawks and leads the team with 11 runs scored. Against fellow Rebel Evan Anderson's Harwich Mariners, Robinson is a combined 6-for-8 with five runs in a pair of victories. The Boyd, Maryland native flashed the leather multiple times, June 20, to help preserve a no-hitter tossed by summer league teammate Devin Smeltzer of Florida Gulf Coast University.

Wyatt Short | LHP | Falmouth Commodores (Cape Cod)
Following a sophomore campaign in which he logged 39.0 innings and earned Second Team All-SEC honors, Short has rested his arm to start the summer. The lefty has made just one appearance for the Commodores, pitching a pair of scoreless innings to earn the save and complete a shutout in a 1-0 win, June 16.

Will Stokes | RHP | Baltimore Redbirds (Cal Ripken)
Spending time as both a starter and a reliever during his freshman campaign at Ole Miss, Stokes has done the same for the Redbirds to start his summer. The Meridian, Mississippi native has appeared in three games, including two starts, to total 13.2 innings of work. Stokes posts an ERA of 2.63 but has yet to earn a decision. He also has 10 strikeouts thus far during summer play.

Joe Wainhouse | IF | Anchorage Glacier Pilots (Alaska)
The Alaska Baseball League started later than the other summer leagues, and Wainhouse has appeared in five games for the Anchorage Glacier Pilots. He is currently 2-for-11 on the season with a pair of walks.

Kyle Watson | IF/OF | Anchorage Glacier Pilots (Alaska)
Alongside his fellow Rebel Wainhouse, Watson is also spending the summer in Alaska playing for the Glacier Pilots. Through eight games, Watson is trying to find his stride with three hits and a pair of RBI. Two of his hits he used his speed to race down the line and beat out infield singles.

J.B. Woodman | OF | Falmouth Commodores (Cape Cod)
Spending the summer on the same team as Rebel teammates Blackman and Short, Woodman has recorded seven hits thus far. Against Wareham, June 19, the Orlando, Florida native produced a crucial RBI to help the Commodores claim a 6-4 victory.
