2015 MLB DRAFT June 8, 2015 - 6:00 PM


Recommended Posts

From BA:

Burrows’ combination of excellent fastball velocity—consistently 93-95 mph last summer and he’s touched 97-98 this spring—and potential for a pair of solid secondary offerings makes him one of the more intriguing high school pitchers in this class. Scouts have seen him light up radar guns with a plus fastball ever since the summer after his sophomore season. A product of the Texas Baseball Ranch’s training program under the tutelage of pitching coach Flint Wallace, Burrows has demonstrated an excellent ability to self-diagnose and continually improve his delivery and his approach over the past few years. And he’s extremely competitive. Scouts harbor concerns about his size—most evaluators believe he’s 6-foot, not 6-foot-2 as he’s often been listed—but do like his broad shoulders. Some scouts have also worried about his delivery, which has cleaned up but still involves an extreme amount of tilt as he reaches his release point. He’s worked through a blister problem this spring. Burrows can rip off a plus 80 mph curveball, and his changeup has quickly gone from a distant third pitch to become a very useable weapon against lefthanders that flashes plus at its best with some late tumble. Scouts who don’t like short righthanders will see him as a power reliever, but teams that have seen Sonny Gray’s success may be intrigued by his polished assortment. He’s committed to Texas A&M.

Seems like a positive eval. As is the norm, durability and secondary pitches seem to be the concern.

Seems like a solid pick, lots of interesting players still on the board too.

Funkhouser, Harris, Betts, Matuella, Ponce, Kingery, Nix, Everett...

One or two should be there for the Tigers.

Yep, I'm hoping for Funkhouser, Matuella, Nix, or maybe Nate Kirby. One should be there.

At this point, signing Funkhouser or Cameron are going to create difficulties, because no one will have the slot $$$ to meet their demands. You can't just "pay up" these days like we did with Porcello, Castellanos, etc.

That's definitely the case for Cameron, not sure about Funkhouser tho. He was said to be sliding due to performance at end of season. That's also allegedly why Harris fell so far. Who knows though?
