#2 Reliever: Alex Hoppe, Harrisonburg

Our 2nd best reliever, junior righthander Alex Hoppe, received several accolades during the summer. He was selected to the South All-Star team, attended the Prospect Showcase in North Carolina, and was named second team All-Valley after the season.

From UNC Greensboro, here is what Hoppe did in the Valley:

ERA W L G SV IP H R ER BB K BAVG WIP BB/9 K/9
2019 1.68 3 1 11 1 26.7 16 8 5 10 39 0.163 0.974 3.4 13.1

Among pitchers considered for this list, he finished seventh in ERA, seventh in innings pitched, third in batting average against, second in WHIP, and tied for fourth in K/9. He gave up three earned runs in his first appearance on June 10, but proceeded to allow only two more the entire rest of the season, covering 23 2/3 innings.

Hoppe hasn’t seen a ton of time on the mound for the Spartans:

ERA W L G SV IP H R ER BB K WIP BB/9 K/9
2018 18.00 0 0 3 0 2.0 4 4 4 7 1 5.500 31.5 4.5
2019 6.59 0 0 11 0 13.7 18 11 10 14 17 2.336 9.2 11.2

He was named to the SoCon Academic Honor Roll in 2017-2018.

Watch for an increased role for the righty with the big fastball!
