A first baseman/right handed pitcher for the Stanton Braves in 2014, Gunnar destroyed the league at the plate, hitting a monstrous 402/469/604, while being named the Valley League’s MVP as well as a top prospect by both Baseball America and Perfect Game. ATVL named him the best hitter in the league.
Gunnar chose to transfer from Florida International to Chipola for his sophomore year, but that hasn’t slowed down his hitting one bit. Through Thursday, March 26, Gunnar is hitting 355/399/529 in 36 games and 121 at-bats. He has 11 doubles, 2 triples, 2 home runs, 32 RBIs, and an excellent 11/12 BB/K ratio.
He’s also pitched in 9 games, going 2-0, 1.85, with 2 saves, only 2 walks, and 28 strikeouts in 24 1/3 innings pitched.
Gunnar’s transfer to Chipola makes him eligible for the MLB draft this June. I can’t help but wonder when his name will be called!
