2020 Draft Profile: Sam Weatherly

The Clemson lefty has become the ace and is doing a good job of it.  It is fitting he pitch like this considering Weatherly is from Michigan and watched his favorite player Justin Verlander pitch in his prime for the Tigers.  In his first four starts of 2020, Weatherly put up an astounding 17.43 K/9…

2020 Draft Profile: Jared Kelley

Kelley is considered one of the best high school pitching prospect in the 2020 class for good reason.  The Texas commit is already highly refined and nearly a finished product.  Kelley was awarded the Gatorade National Player of the Year award last week.   He is a mature player who takes control of the field when…

2020 Draft Profile: Jeff Criswell

Criswell caught my attention last year and became a solid draft prospect in my mind when he pitched for Michigan against Vanderbilt in the College World Series.  Criswell showed good stuff in his 5.0 innings of work.  Criswell has a starter’s body standing 6’4” with wide shoulders and strong legs.  With MLB moving the second…

2020 Draft Profile: Will Klein

Will Klein was not a guy that would have gone high in the draft last year.  He might not even have been taken.  The problem he had, like most fire-ballers, is Klein could not throw a strike walking 27 batters in 24.0 innings.  He is a big, hard-throwing righty standing 6’5” tall who pitched out…

2020 Draft Profile: Jack Leftwich

Jack Leftwich is the second of the strong-armed Florida right-handed pitches who should go high in the 2020 MLB Draft.  Leftwich is one of those prototypical Gator righties who is tall and skinny, throws hard, has a hard breaking ball, and a quick windup.  Leftwich has some room for development and refinement and a pro…

2020 Draft Target: Burl Carraway

Carraway is one of the top relievers in the country throwing gas and spinning curves that make hitters have nightmares.  The Horned Frog is a herky jerky left-handed reliever with a huge fastball and some control problems.  He is exactly the kind of guy you don’t want to dig into the batter’s box to face. …

2020 Draft Target: Zach DeLoach

I’m done writing about Miami Hurricanes.  For a while, at least.  I’m moving on to another SEC top of the line player. Zach DeLoach is one of the top NCAA outfielders available in the 2020 MLB Draft.  DeLoach opened a lot of eyes and radically improved his draft stock over the 2019 summer with an…

2020 Draft Profile: Slade Cecconi

I apologize for the late post today.  An overaggressive garbage truck pulled my mailbox out of the ground this morning and I spent some time fixing that after I got home from the field.  So I apologize! This is one of Alex’s favorite pitchers and there is a good possibility that he does not make…

2020 Draft Profile: Freddy Zamora

Freddy Zamora was considered one of the top college shortstop prospects in the country going into the 2020 season.  Zamora’s season was cut short when he tore his ACL in early spring during practice.  Zamora attends the University of Miami. Zamora was expected to hit third for the highly-ranked Canes.  With three starting pitchers who…

2020 Draft Profile: Chris McMahon

The junior starter from the University of Miami would have helped the Hurricanes be relevant deep into the NCAA Baseball season this spring.  McMahon solidified himself as one of the better pitchers in the state of Florida.  The combination of McMahon, Slade Cecconi, and Brian Van Belle make the ‘Canes weekend rotation one of the…

2020 Draft Profile: Logan Allen

Logan Allen is a solid LHP.  I’m not exactly sure where he will go but I think he will be in play before the Royals pick at 76.  He could possibly be an option at 41.  There have been a few mocks out there that had him sliding into the back end of the first…

2020 Draft Profile: Jake Eder

Eder was a highly sought-after left-handed pitcher coming out of high school who was a potential first round talent, but his commitment to Vanderbilt scared a lot of teams away.  Eder was drafted late, didn’t get an offer he liked, and went to school.  Eder’s draft stock has fallen slightly since his high school days…

2020 Draft Profile: CJ Van Eyk

CJ Van Eyk was my favorite right-handed NCAA pitcher heading into the college season back in January.  Van Eyk had some rough patches early and because of that, it’s pushed him out of Baseball America and ESPN’s latest mock draft.  ESPN released picks 1-37 this morning. Van Eyk had yet to pitch his best ball…

2020 Draft Profile: Tommy Mace

Mace is the best pitcher on the best college baseball team in the nation.  If I was to describe him in just one paragraph, I would say Mace exhibits some swag with a solid strikeout strut and shows positive emotion when he makes a big pitch or a big play is made behind him.  He…

2020 Draft Profile: Garrett Crochet

We are getting closer and closer to Draft Day!  We still have a lot of things to look at and players to evaluate before we get there.  Today is another top arm out of the SEC.  If you haven’t figured it out yet, the SEC is the best conference for college baseball from top to…
