X-FACTOR

Dean Guzman - The Stetson commit returns for his senior season after leading the Bobcats in hitting in 2021. Guzman hit .472 with 8 XBH and 17 RBI in 2021.

OUTLOOK

The Bobcats are coming off a 2021 season where they finished 20-5 but were disappointed with an early exit in regionals. They reload with a good group of Seniors headlined by FSU commit Derek Bermudez, Stetson commit Dean Guzman, and Miami commit Sebastian Perez. Back for their sophomore years are Alejandro Sardinas and Jason Wachs, who made big impacts offensively as freshmen last year. Perez takes over as the team's ace in 2022 where his big frame and mid 90's fastball will be a key to the Bobcats' success.
