Nebraska Baseball adds contact hitter in latest line of transfer talent

Nebraska Baseball added another talented transfer on Saturday.

Nebraska baseball was able to pick up a commitment on Saturday afternoon, landing junior college outfielder Luke Sartori.

A native of Lincoln, Nebraska, the outfielder went to Lincoln Southwest high school. He lit up the diamond in his only season with Hutchinson Community College. Batting .455 in 19 games played, he smacked four home runs and drove in 18 runs batted in. He also recorded four stolen bases.

Sartori was an accomplished player in high school. He received Second-Team Super-State honors at Lincoln Southwest in his senior campaign.

Looking at the box score, his statistics suggest that he is more of a contact than power hitter. Especially in college baseball, contact hitters are certainly a bonus. Nebraska baseball has had their fair share of great contact hitters over the years. Aaron Palensky, who recently signed with the New York Yankees, comes to mind.

Nebraska baseball has covered all of the bases in recruiting. Earlier this week, they landed Texas A&M transfer Cam Wynne. He should be able to help with the bullpen. They also landed New Mexico State transfer Chance Hroch.

I really like what the program is trying to do in terms of getting players via transfers. They are bringing in experienced players, who have college baseball under their belt already. Nebraska baseball had many young players on their team last year. In particular, a talented group of pitchers graduated in 2018-19.

Will Bolt is looking to leave his imprint on this roster. There were already some signs of it at the beginning of the season. Unfortunately, we didn’t get to see how they were all going to play out. Hopefully the 2021 season gives us a better idea of what this Nebraska baseball team can do and the type of talent they have. This latest influx of transfers will certainly be able to offer us a measuring stick as to where this program stands for the foreseeable future.
