#13 Reliever: Jeremy Cook, Staunton

Jeremy Cook headshot MiamiJeremy Cook, the 13th best reliever in the 2018 VBL season, is, by far, the most decorated reliever on the list.

After the season, Jeremy made all three prospect lists; ATVL named him #8, Perfect Game #4, and Baseball America listed him as the best prospect in the entire league. The 6-foot-1 lefthander from Miami certainly has the ingredients to move on to the next level of baseball, as he can run his fastball up to 94 mph, and he also has a sharp slider and a developing curveball.

Cook surely was difficult to hit for Staunton:

2018 3.04 4 2 20 1 23.7 15 16 8 18 41 0.183 1.392 6.8 15.6

Among pitchers on this list, he finish 9th in innings pitched, tied for 9th in batting average against, and 3rd in K/9. He struck out 2 in a shutout inning at the All-Star game, and also pitched an inning at the Prospect Showcase in North Carolina.

Here are his freshman stats for Miami:

2018 4.58 0 0 22 0 19.7 21 11 10 20 18 2.081 9.1 8.2

Jeremy has the stuff to quickly earn a crucial role in the Hurricanes’ bullpen in 2019, and begin to show up on prospect lists!
