Chevy Emken

Rosters Number: 19
Position: Pitcher
Class: Sophomore
Hometown: Canton, IL

Chevy completed the 2016 season with the 3rd most innings pitched (39.2) on the staff and his 8 starts was the 4th highest team total.  He finished with a 2-6 record and a 5.22 ERA. One of his best outings last year came in his hometown of Canton, IL hurling against Spoon River.  Chevy went 5 innings, surrendering 2 runs (1 earned) on 4 hits.  He struck out 5 and didn’t walk a batter in earning the win. Two weeks later, he pitched the distance in a 10-0 win over Lincoln for his first collegiate shutout.

Chevy had a great fall season and has made great strides toward becoming one of the conference’s top arms.  His conditioning has improved and his velocity has increased, as has his command.  His hard work should pay-off in a very good sophomore season.
