Head coach Tim Corbin on Casas“Although Gavin didn’t see a lot of time on the field last year, he was part of an Omaha team and earned a lot of reps with that group. Gav has size, strength, and power in his bat. He moves well at 1st base and has a good arm. He will be coming back from an injury that set him back during the summer, but he is moving in the right direction now. He certainly has the potential to help this program.”
