From College Baseball Daily's Big Ten Preview:


Iowa (2018 Record: 33-20, 13-9)

Iowa was on the NCAA Tournament bubble last year after finishing sixth in the Big Ten, but after going 0-2 in the Big Ten Tournament they were left out of the postseason.

Returning Players

Iowa loses its top four hitters from last year’s team, including Tyler Cropley and Robert Neustrom. Outfielder Chris Whelan will try and steady the lineup after batting .308 last year in just 38 games with 36 runs scored and 4 home runs.

Cole McDonald will lead the weekend rotation after posting a 3.23 ERA in 2018 over 55.2 innings pitched with 52 strikeouts. Jack Dreyer could fill a rotation spot as well after posting a 3.69 ERA last year in 31.2 innings pitched with 42 strikeouts.


These newcomers could have a major impact this season: OF Connor McCaffery, 1B Tanner Padgett, DH Izaya Fullard, C Austin Martin, and OF Zeb Adreon.

Outlook for 2019

“Our starting pitching will be strong and the number of back-end options look good despite our losses. Our team defense should be solid and I like our offense from top to bottom. We lack the punch of Cropley and Neustrom, but consistently from top-to-bottom of the lineup is our strength.” – Quote from Iowa coaching staff
