In addition, DiPiazza's 14 starts were good enough for fifth overall, his 84 innings pitched ranked 10th and his 11.7 strikeouts per nine innings pitched landed him at 16th.

Despite being selected in the 39th round of the 2016 MLB Draft by the San Francisco Giants, DiPiazza plans to return to Mercer County for his second year of eligibility.
