Freshman Blake Gibbs takes a swing in a scrimmage last week. During the scrimmage Gibbs homered to left field. Gibbs is expected to see time this weekend against Tennessee.
A new face that impressed in practice last week is freshman outfielder Blake Gibbs. The Bellevue, Wash., native smoked a ball over the wall in left field in a scrimmage while playing defense with the supposed number ones in the outfield. Junior Logan Lotti and senior John Wallace joined Gibbs in the outfield during scrimmages last week.
“Blake Gibbs has played well for us,” Casey said. “Blake’s been playing left field and DH’ing and should see some at bats this weekend. It kind of depends who the arms are.”
