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…

One Week Until Draft Day

There are only seven days left before the Royals start making selections in the 2020 MLB Draft.  It’s almost here.  I’ve been waiting for this event for quite a while.  When Alex and I found out the draft was going to be held in Omaha in correspondence with the College World Series this year, we…

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: Heston Kjerstad

Kjerstad is one of the top NCAA outfielders in the 2020 MLB Draft.  Kjerstad is a three-year starter at the University of Arkansas and has been a solid player in the SEC since his freshman season.  Kjerstad was a force hitting in the two spot for the Razorbacks offense. This year, Kjerstad was hitting .448/.513/.791…

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: Aaron Sabato

Aaron Sabato has forearms built for a lumberjack.  He is incredibly strong and is a masher that can launch balls as far as anyone in the college game.  Sabato is limited to first base defensively so he will have to hit but it looks like he can hit and hit for power.   Sabato steps slightly…

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…

2020 Draft Profile: Max Meyer

I had never watched Meyer pitch until this spring.  I had heard about him, but didn’t start looking at players until about January.  Pretty much anyone who pitches for Team USA is really good, so I knew he was good.  I don’t think anyone realized how good he was.  I was impressed and knew he…

2020 Draft Profile: Reid Detmers

Detmers wasn’t a guy I initially thought about the Royals drafting.  Not because he isn’t talented, but because he doesn’t have the high-end stuff that a Hancock or Lacy have.  Granted his stuff is very good and he is one of the top NCAA arms in the nation.  He has been mentioned somewhere starting around…
