Duncan Ranked in Top-100 Seniors
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas senior right-handed veteran Frank Duncan saw his name at No. 46 on a list of the top-100 college baseball seniors, as ranked by Perfect Game this past Monday.
The San Francisco native returns to the bump for the third-straight year in the weekend rotation, after being drafted by the Cleveland Indians organization a year ago and electing to finish out his career as a Jayhawk. The senior holds a career record of 10-17 with a career ERA of 3.54. He ranks first among returning players in the Big 12 Conference in appearances (62), strikeouts (187) and innings pitched (241.2).
Duncan’s best year on the mound came in 2012 when he became just the fifth pitcher in school history to strike out 100 batters, doing so in 111 and a third innings pitched. Those strikeouts, coupled with the total from his freshman and junior years, rank him in at No. 10 all-time in KU history with 187. That same season, he earned All-Big 12 Second Team honors and was voted the Jayhawks’ best pitcher by his teammates.
Duncan is slated to open his 2014 campaign this weekend, tossing the third game of a four-game series against BYU. The series opens up on Friday, Feb. 14 at 2 p.m. (CST).
