Members of the Oregon State baseball team with local ties

Jake Mullholland is one of five area players on the Beavers’ roster

Closer Jake Mulholland is one of five players with local ties playing for the No. 9 Oregon State baseball team this season. Here are the other four, with comments from Beavers head coach Pat Casey and a link to the Beavers’ 2018 stats:

Michael Attalah, Fr., RHP, Cedar Park Christian

Casey: “He needed a little more development physically, so we decided to use a redshirt. He doesn’t come from a very big school, so there were a lot of learning situations for him.”

Kyler McMahan, Fr., 2B, Lynnwood

Casey: “He’s in a tough situation because he’s behind a three-year starter in Cadyn Grenier, and he hasn’t played very much, but he’s made big strides as a player.”

Kyle Nobach, R-Sr., OF, Marysville Pilchuck/Everett CC

Casey: “We’ve just been waiting for him to get 100 percent healthy (Nobach missed all of last season after knee surgery). He had a scope done on his knee a little while ago and hasn’t quite been at 100 percent, but he has a very good opportunity to play every day.”

Ryan Ober, Fr., 3B, Glacier Peak

Casey: “He’s also behind a three-year starter in Michael Gretler. We think both he and Kyler will be very good players in our program. They can both play different positions and are valuable guys.”
