Top 100 Countdown: Number 20 Sean Gilmartin (Florida State)

SeanGilmartinFSU The CBB continues our countdown for the 2010 College Baseball season by checking in on the Top 100 Players in the country. We will be providing one player per day until we reach number 1.

We continue the list today with number 20 in our countdown with sophomore LHP Sean Gilmartin from Florida State. He is from Moorpark California and attended Crespi Carmelite High School. He was a three-time All-League honoree (2006-08) and was selected in the 31st round of the 2008 MLB Draft by the San Diego Padres.

 

Gilmartin had a very good freshman season which saw him go 12-3 including one save with a 3.49 ERA in 18 appearances including 15 starts. He ended up finishing the season with 83 strikeouts in 98 innings of work. Gilmartin served most of the year as the Seminoles number 1 starter after being moved into the slot three weeks in. The 12 wins on the year was the best in the conference while he tied for first in the league in complete games also. GIlmartin spent the summer in the NECBL with the North Shore Navigators where he did not pitch while have a .176 average with 2 RBI in 11 games including nine starts.

    Nothing against Gilmartin, who should be on this list somewhere, but how the heck can Hultzen be so much lower when he had a better ERA, more Ks, and was a legit two way player? A lot of these picks are kind of head scratchers.

  • D-Jaxx

    Totally agree with Ryan on this, Especially when you have players on here that hit 240 .avg and below, In the Fall and Summer Ball. Brian your Credibility takes a hit, But for the most part your list is dead on.

    People take too much into the numbers. The difference between 50 and 25 is minimal.

    Hultzen needs to step up his power production at the plate. Hopefully Hultzen hit the weight room and got bigger which was my biggest issue with him last time I saw him in Omaha.

  • Ryan

    I’m not claiming that Hultzen is a huge bulky power threat and I don’t think I’d want him to be since it might negatively affect his fluid pitching motion. Nonetheless, he hit 3 HR last year and .410 OBP. It’s sort of a meaningless survey in the scheme of things, but why assign 1-100 rankings at all if you are going to say the difference is minimal (particularly since there’s no compelling argument for the order that you gave).

    I think Gilmartin is slightly better then Hultzen on the mound especially for pro potential.
