2017 Desert Oasis Baseball Capsule


Head coach: Paul Buboltz, fifth season

2016 record: 19-14 (11-7 Division I Sunset, fifth)

Returning lettermen (starters): Thirteen (seven)

Top players: P/IF Brett Brocoff (Sr.), OF Nic Lane (Sr.), OF Kyle Fuentes (Sr.), P/IF Aaron Roberts (So.), P Cade Adams (Sr.)

Outlook: Desert Oasis will have a void in the middle of the field after losing four-year varsity starter and current UNLV freshman Bryson Stott, but the Diamondbacks return a veteran team.

Brocoff (.393, 9 doubles, 4 triples, 3-2 pitching record), a Utah signee, will lead the way. He will be joined by senior outfielders Lane (.410, 16 RBIs) and Fuentes (.308, 16 RBI) and Roberts (.253, 21 RBIs).

Adams, a UNLV signee who was injured last year, is on the mend this season and also will be looking to make an impact.

“Experience is a word that comes to mind as Desert Oasis’ 11 seniors look to lead a talented mix of veterans and newcomers toward a successful season,” Buboltz said.
