D1Baseball has completed their analysis of summer 2018 pitching performances from the Cape League and the Northwoods League. Their analysis seems pretty thorough; they even adjust for park effects.
Their top five list includes two stars from this past summer on the Cape:
The #1 overall pitcher is Orleans’ Kevin Kelly (JMU). Kelly was a 2018 All-Star and finished with the best overall ERA on Cape.
#3 is Chatham’s Alek Manoah (WVU). Manoah is ranked #5 on D1Baseball’s top college pitching prospects for the 2019 MLB draft.
Both Kelly and Manoah were named to the 2018 CCBL Year-End All League Team.
