They will be led by pitcher Miller Hogan, who was drafted by the Brewers and returns to SLU for his junior season. He was 8-3 with a 2.70 ERA as a sophomore. His eight wins last year are tied for the sixth-most in a single season at Saint Louis. Hogan's ERA is the 13th best single season mark. He also had 78 strikeouts and 23 walks in 90 innings last season. Also returning is senior catcher James Morisano, who led SLU with a .316 batting average and 12 home runs, as well as closer Ryan Lefner, who set a SLU record with 14 saves a year ago.
