Michael Flynn (’15), a RHP from Servite High School in Anaheim, CA, has committed to Andy Lopez’s University of Arizona baseball program.
“I believe in the coaching staff and know they have the ability to develop me into a player that can get to the next level,” Flynn said.
During Flynn’s recent junior campaign at Servite, the righty posted a 1-1 record, a 1.02 ERA, and struck out 15 in 13 2/3 innings. He also played center field for the Friars and batted .284.
“He’s worked hard in developing a repeatable deliver that produces quality height and command of three-plus pitches,” said Duane Page, Servite High School’s pitching coach. “His combination of athleticism and a power arm are a unique skill set.”
Last season, Arizona struggled to replicate their 2012 season, which resulted in the program’s 4th national championship. The Wildcats finished with a 9-21 Pac-12 play record and accumulated an overall record of 22-33 which placed the team 10th/11 in the final conference standings. In addition, the ‘Cats struggled with many facets on their game, including batting average (.280, 77th in the nation), slugging percentage (.365, 137th), on-base percentage (.362, 98th), runs scored per nine innings (5.2, 127th), steals (57, tied for 122nd), ERA (4.49, 180th), WHIP (1.38, 113th), and hit batters (58, tied for 154th).
