Rutgers baseball makes three significant transfer portal additions

Rutgers baseball makes three significant transfer portal additions

Rutgers baseball added some good talent via the transfer portal this week, with the program adding some much-needed help for the bullpen as well as a first baseman who brings some more pop to the line-up.

Last season, Rutgers went 44-15 (17-7 in the Big Ten). They finished second in the Big Ten’s regular season and then were runner-ups in the conference tournament. They were a surprising omission from the NCAA Tournament.

A very surprising omission at that.

The three additions add to a roster that is deep and experienced but has some solid young pieces.

A look at what Rutgers baseball has added in the transfer portal this week:

Joe Conover: As a reliever last year, pitched 28.2 innings and allowed a batting of .250. The 6-foot-5 standout from New Jersey was an All-State selection at Vorhees in 2020.
John Biagio-Modugno: As a right-hander at Indiana last year, was a Big Ten All-Freshman Team. Didn’t allow a run in 10 of his 16 appearances. Was solid coming out of the bullpen for the Hoosiers. Went to Don Bosco Prep (Ramsey, N.J.) in high school.
Xavier Vargas: A super senior, the first baseman adds another bat to the lineup. At Rhode Island last year, led the program with 11 home runs and 58 RBIs.
