Baseball notebook: Three pitchers heading to FSU, FAU; Martin County SS staying in school 

By Matt Porter

Several baseball notes to pass along:

* Park Vista left-hander Brandon Rhodes will play at FAU after his senior season.

Rhodes was expected to be one of the Cobras’ top pitchers before a preseason injury shortened his junior season. He became a reliable starter and reliever as Park Vista made a run to the Class 6A state semifinal.

* American Heritage right-hander Trevor Maloney also committed to FAU. Maloney, who also plays outfield, is a 6-2, 200 pounds and throws in a high-80s. He combined with Silva and ace Billy Strode to pitch the Stallions to the 2A regional semifinals.

* American Heritage lefty Dylan Silva committed to Florida State. Silva is a 6-1, 210-pound power pitcher who struck out 41 batters last season.

Silva and Maloney will be at the front of the Stallions’ rotation next spring. Both were All-Area honorable mention selections in their junior seasons.

* Former Martin County shortstop Mike Miedzianowski, a 22nd-round MLB Draft pick by the Baltimore Orioles, said he will not turn pro and will instead attend High Point University this fall.

Miedzianowski hit .338 with a .483 on-base percentage, 27 runs scored and 11 RBI in his senior season. He will play for Brewster of the Cape Cod League next summer and is on the Team USA National Collegiate Team watch list.

* Former Atlantic right-hander Joseph Morrison accepted a scholarship to Northwestern Oklahoma State University, an NAIA school in Alva, Okla.
