Replacing four starters taken in the 2013 Major League draft is the challenge facing head baseball coach Mike Littlewood and his staff as they prepare for their second season at BYU.

“We have more depth, but had key losses in (Jacob) Hannemann, (Jaycob) Brugman, (Adam) Law and (Adam) Miller,” Littlewood said. “You don't replace them. We just hope somebody will step up.”

The Cougars tied for second place last year in the West Coast Conference with a 15-9 mark and an overall record of 32-21.
